Most attorneys conform to the highest ethical standards and work diligently to uphold their many duties to their clients. Unfortunately, not all attorneys meet this standard. When attorneys fall short of this goal (commonly referred to as the standard-of-care), it can have catastrophic consequences. If you have been harmed financially by an attorney’s negligence, incompetence, unscrupulous behavior or intentional wrongdoing, you may bring a legal malpractice claim.
With more than three decades of experience, our legal malpractice team has forcefully taken action in a broad range of claims for clients across California, including attorney malpractice claims.
In a legal malpractice case, we must show that you suffered economic damage, and that the damage was the result of an underlying mistake by the attorney. Having represented clients in many cases, we can readily identify the underlying issues, advise you accordingly and develop the strongest possible course of action.
