At the law firm of Cerussi & Gunn, P.C., we do not subscribe to the theory that lawyers should never sue other lawyers. A profession such as law, medicine, dentistry or aviation has developed professional standards which people who call themselves "attorney," "doctor," "dentist" or "pilot" are expected to know and follow. When clients, patients or passengers are harmed a result of professional negligence, the law allows for redress through malpractice claims and lawsuits.
Please contact us to schedule a consultation if your attorney improperly handled a lawsuit, resulting in a significant loss to either you or your business.
Specific examples of legal malpractice may include one or more of the following:
Legal malpractice may come about because an attorney took on a case that was outside their area of proficiency. They may have been overworked, and for that reason, neglected to prepare a case properly.
A legal malpractice attorney has a double responsibility on behalf of a client who was wronged by another lawyer's negligence. First, the underlying "case within a case" must be litigated. The result of this undertaking should be a determination of the value of the case that was neglected or mishandled. Secondly, a detailed account of the professional negligence must be investigated and documented.
Our civil trial lawyers are ready and willing to go the extra mile to secure justice for a client who was wronged by their attorney. Please contact us to schedule a consultation.
