Legal Malpractice Attorneys
Has your lawyer committed legal malpractice?
Sometimes lawyers make mistakes. If your lawyer’s conduct was careless, improper or negligent, then you may need the help of a legal malpractice attorney.
What are the elements of a legal malpractice case?
Simply stated, to prove legal malpractice, a legal malpractice lawyer must prove at least the following:
- An attorney-client relationship existed
- The lawyer breached the duty(s)he owed to the client
- The lawyer’s wrongdoing harmed the client
What types of legal malpractice cases does Goren, Goren & Harris take?
Because of the nature of legal malpractice cases, our threshold is $100,000. That is to say, the value of your lawyer’s error should meet or exceed this amount. Examples of possible errors include:
- Letting your statute of limitations expire or otherwise missing an important deadline
- Tax consequences from failing to take appropriate action
- Your lawyer’s mistake must have cost you money (the result would have been different if not for the mistake)
