Helping Clients Facing Legal Malpractice Issues

Our legal system counts on attorneys, among others, to defend their clients' rights, whether financial or otherwise, zealously. Without that commitment, the justice system does not work properly.

You can count on Anthony Viorst at The Viorst Law Offices, P.C., to pursue damages against the attorney responsible. Contact our legal malpractice attorney today.

You Have a Right to Zealous Legal Defense

Simply losing your case does not give rise to a claim for legal malpractice. But if your attorney made errors in the course of representing you that led to, or even contributed greatly to the loss of your case, you may have a claim against him or her for the damages you have suffered.

Likewise, not all attorney errors constitute the negligence necessary to win a claim of legal malpractice. Some lawyer mistakes that could lead to a finding of legal malpractice are:

  • Missing the statute of limitations (the time in which you have to file a claim)
  • Conflicts of interest
  • Breach of fiduciary duty
  • Incorrect title searches
  • Inaccurate interpretation of the applicable law
  • Charging excessive fees
  • Ineffective assistance of counsel

To prove legal malpractice, we must first prove that your original lawyer acted negligently. Then, we must show that the original case would have been successful if not for your attorney's negligence. Other factors to consider are the damages suffered as a result of your original attorney's negligence and whether they were adequately covered by insurance.

Appeal of Criminal Conviction

When you have been wrongfully convicted of a crime, you could be facing loss of your job, reputation, a large fine and even prison time — you are taking responsibility for something that you didn't do.

In addition to pursuing damages from your original attorney, Mr. Viorst can assist you with an appeal of your conviction based on ineffective assistance of counsel, including a failure to put an expert on the stand or to present evidence in support of your case.
