Legal Injuries Can Hurt, Too

Plaintiffs trial lawyers have been accused of being greedy, extortionist, and filing and making frivolous claims. This is simply not true. In almost all cases the plaintiffs lawyer is advocating and presenting a claim for their deserving client who has been cast into a complex system. These thoughts about plaintiffs lawyers are simply a trick the insurance companies and their powerful lobbies have used to poison the general public against lawyers who have devoted their careers of service and to making sure people have equal protection under the law.

Unfortunately, lawyers are people, and they can make mistakes. If a lawyer's mistake has resulted in harm to you or a loved one, you may be able to pursue a claim for legal malpractice. This is understandably a difficult and sensitive area of the law, so your choice of attorney is important.

From my office in Los Angeles, I handle legal malpractice claims in Santa Monica and throughout Southern California. When you have a case against your prior attorney it is important to have an attorney on your side with the experience necessary to navigate the process and obtain a result that properly compensates you for your damages.

Do You Have A Claim?

Whether you have a legal malpractice case is extremely fact dependent. There are many factors in play, and most of the time, simply losing a case is not malpractice. However, for malpractice to be a possibility, there must be issues present such as ineffective counsel, failure to meet filing deadlines, negligent conduct, breach of contract, or breach of fiduciary duty that causes you harm or your case harm.
