Fighting legal malpractice means trusting a new attorney

As someone who has already faced a traumatic incident, the fact that you don't think your attorney paid enough attention to your case or did his or her best to represent you could make you furious. There are situations in which attorneys don't do their best for their clients, and in those cases, the clients may have a right to file a legal malpractice lawsuit.

Legal malpractice can result in the loss of your case

Legal malpractice puts you in a difficult position as a client. You're relying on your attorney to be educated and respectful of your needs. You hire an attorney to represent you and to look out for your best interests. If you find out that he or she is not doing that, then you could feel violated and angry.

When should you file a legal malpractice lawsuit?

Legal malpractice is a horrible situation for clients. They put their faith in an attorney's knowledge, but when he or she doesn't pull through because of negligence or because the attorney refuses to communicate, it puts the client in a very difficult position.

A conflict of interest can result in financial losses

When you find an attorney for your case, the last thing you ever want to do is hire someone who is working for the other party. Why? There's a distinct conflict of interests if you decide to work with someone who also has an interest in helping the other person win his or her case.

Legal malpractice is when an attorney doesn't perform within the standards or codes of ethics or professional conduct expected by the community. It's not losing a case, since no case is guaranteed. Instead, it's when an attorney does something that affected the client negatively as a result of negligence or malicious behavior.

3 signs of legal malpractice to look out for
