Victim Of Legal Malpractice?
Deciding to hire a particular attorney for a legal issue or lawsuit means you are putting your trust in him or her to act in your best interests. You are also putting your trust in him or her to meet all legal obligations as your lawyer. But what if the lawyer is inadequate? What if they do a terrible job? Lawyers have what is called a “fiduciary” duty to their clients. When this duty is breached, it may constitute legal malpractice.
If you believe your attorney committed legal malpractice, you may be wary of trying to hire another attorney. This is completely understandable. However, it is important to understand that legal malpractice is not always easy to prove and it will likely require the help of a seasoned, trustworthy and knowledgeable attorney.

What Constitutes Legal Malpractice?
Remember, just because a lawyer didn’t get the result you were expecting or they lost a case, does not mean they committed legal malpractice. But here are some of the actions that can constitute legal malpractice:
- Failing to meet the statute of limitations
- Failing to meet other deadlines
- Breaching a fiduciary duty
- Failing to report a conflict of interest
- Commingling a client’s funds with their own funds
- Representing with indifference or neglect
These are just some of the many ways an attorney can commit legal malpractice. Some attorneys may have committed legal malpractice in more than one way. Every situation is different so it is important to consult with a skilled professional malpractice lawyer as soon as possible.
