Unfortunately, in some instances, lawyers fall short in fulfilling their duties to their clients. In certain cases, these actions (or action) rise to the level of malpractice. While not every bad result constitutes malpractice, it may be appropriate to hold a negligence lawyer accountable for his or her substandard performance. Our firm provides representation in legal malpractice cases in order to achieve justice for our clients and to uphold the standards of the legal professional.
Experienced Phoenix Malpractice Lawyers
Simply losing your case or arriving at what you consider an unjust result is not malpractice. To prove a legal malpractice case, it must be proven that: (1) that the lawyer breached the standard of care, (2) that this breach of duty caused harm to the client and (3) that the client has damages because of the malpractice.
Malpractice can occur in the context of litigation or in transactional work. A textbook example of litigational malpractice is failing to file a claim before the statute of limitation runs. Examples of transactional malpractice include producing defective documents or failing to properly advise clients.
