Lawyers can make mistakes or even put their financial interests ahead of the interests of their clients. When this happens, a claim for legal malpractice can arise. Types of legal malpractice cases can include missed deadlines and breach of a fiduciary duty. Communication between an attorney and client is very important, and failure to adequately communicate with the client can also lead to a legal malpractice claim.
Examples of legal malpractice include:
failure to meet a filing or service deadline
failure to sue within the statute of limitations
failure to perform a conflicts check
failure to apply the law correctly to a client’s situation
abuse of a client’s trust account
failure to return telephone calls
