Personal or financial losses can often be recovered through the legal system. However, when you hire an attorney who negligently handles your case or claim, it can be like losing twice. Legal malpractice claims are available to protect consumers, as well as hold lawyers accountable when they cause personal or financial loss by performing poorly. At Clark & Mitchell P.C., we are experienced in the investigation and pursuit of legal malpractice claims on behalf of clients who have suffered as a result of attorney negligence.
Many lawyers will not pursue legal malpractice claims. Our attorneys believe in the highest quality of service, commitment, and integrity within the legal profession. For this reason, we are willing to investigate and file claims on behalf of clients who have suffered financial or legal detriment caused by professional negligence.
Do I Have a Claim?
Legal malpractice claims depend on showing both that an attorney acted negligently and that the negligent act caused a lost claim or recovery for the client. Lawyers are required to use reasonable care, so that petitions are filed in a timely manner, cases are properly investigated, and legal decisions are in good faith. If the representation you received fell below this standard, you may be entitled to compensation for your losses.
Our firm is experienced in legal malpractice claims involving:
- Failure to file claim within the statute of limitations
- Claims involving medical malpractice, personal injury, or insurance litigation
- Failure to appear in court
- Failure to draft appropriate documents
- Breach of fiduciary duty
