When Lawyers Commit Legal Malpractice

You hire an attorney when you have a problem that you cannot fix yourself. Unfortunately, a lawyer can sometimes make the problem worse.

If you suffered significant damages because of your attorney’s mistakes, you may be able to recover financial compensation through a legal malpractice claim.

Policing the Profession, Righting Wrongs

At Stolpman, Krissman, Elber & Silver, we do not like suing fellow attorneys. But we recognize there are members of the bar who do not share our commitment to quality legal representation.

We file legal malpractice claims in cases in which a lawyer’s mistake seriously harmed a client. We pursue legal malpractice claims in order to hold attorneys accountable for the harm they cause individual clients and the profession as a whole.

What Constitutes Legal Malpractice?

You cannot file a professional malpractice claim just because you lost your case. However, if your attorney failed to meet a filing deadline, failed to take action that would have protected the client’s interest or breached a fiduciary duty to the client, you may have grounds for a legal malpractice claim.

People depend on lawyers to work in their best interest, whether they are seeking a divorce, buying property or negotiating the terms of a contract. If your attorney caused you demonstrable harm by making errors any reasonable lawyer would not make, please contact Stolpman, Krissman, Elber & Silver to arrange a free consultation and case evaluation.
