Even the best of lawyers make big mistakes. Preparation is key to avoiding these mistakes. At our law firm, we believe in competent, hard work. We take the time to understand what our clients are going through and the intricate details of their cases. When other attorneys fail to put the same effort into their cases and that failure leads to negative results, we help clients bring legal malpractice actions.

Failure to properly evaluate a case

Early case investigations do more than provide evidence for trial. They also help an attorney evaluate the merits of a case and the remedies available to his or her client. Far too often, lawyers fail to recognize the forms of relief available and end up costing their clients thousands of dollars. This is especially true in matrimonial cases, where attorneys sometimes fail to move for interim/pre-trial relief for their clients.

Case review is also important at the very first meeting between you and the attorney. Attorneys have a short time to review a case and determine whether they should take it. They must evaluate this question in a few different ways: 1) Do they have adequate knowledge to take the case? and 2) Does the case have merit? Attorneys must also consider their clients' financial status: is a legal action financially smart? Failure to consider these factors can be a fundamental error that can cost a client legally, emotionally, and financially.
