Types of Legal Malpractice
Sometimes lawyers get an unfair reputation. The truth is that most lawyers are looking out for the best interests of their clients and do everything in their power to achieve the best possible outcome for them. But there is good and bad in every profession, and some attorneys fail their clients.
At Tremont Sheldon P.C. P.C., we are recognized as leaders in the field of legal malpractice and are one of the few firms that pursue these complex claims. We can help you determine if you have a legitimate claim for legal malpractice and pursue an outcome that maximizes your financial compensation if you are a malpractice victim.
Poor Outcomes Do Not Equal Malpractice
If you are a victim of malpractice, it is a safe bet that your case did not turn out how you would have liked. But it is important to remember that a case not turning out in your favor does not necessarily mean that you are a victim of malpractice. Examples of legal malpractice include:
- Taking a case despite a conflict of interest
- Stealing from clients
- Breach of fiduciary duty
- Missed deadlines
- Failure to follow instructions
- Inadequate preparation
- Asserting incorrect claims or defenses
- Failure to introduce evidence
