Have You Been the Victim of Legal Malpractice?
As is the case for physicians and other professionals, attorneys are required to provide competent legal care and to follow certain ethical guidelines in the representation of their clients. When an attorney does not, for whatever reason, and a client suffers serious financial consequences as a result — the client can file a legal malpractice claim against the attorney in question seeking compensation for the damage done.
And while these cases are difficult to prove in general — the bigger problem for many people is finding an attorney willing to pursue it.
Having practiced law for nearly 25 years myself and coming from a family tradition of legal practice dating back to 1914, I know that no lawyer makes the right decision every time. I do believe, however, that attorneys must be held accountable for unethical choices and for mistakes that cause serious financial harm to their clients. Based on that belief, it is my duty to represent clients with legal malpractice claims in Rhode Island and Connecticut. For a free consultation — call or contact either of my two office locations.
Legal Malpractice Claims in Rhode Island and Connecticut
The most common bases of legal malpractice claims include:
- Missing a filing deadline or statute of limitations
- Mistakes in legal research, analysis and reasoning
- Breaching a fiduciary duty
- Failing to disclose a conflict of interest
In order to prevail in a legal malpractice case, you have to prove more than just a mistake or ethical lapse. You have to be able to prove that you would have won your case if not for the attorney's actions. Because very few legal cases are iron-clad winners, this is very difficult to accomplish. However, I have successfully represented clients in these types of cases before and would welcome the opportunity to represent you as well if your case has merit.
