New York City Statute of Limitations Attorney

Manhattan Missed Deadlines Lawyer

A statute of limitations is the legal deadline by which a legal action must be filed with the courts or be forever barred. And - "but for" the failure of your attorney to timely proceed with the prosecution of your case you would have prevailed, then you may have the requisite combination of events to successfully prosecute a claim for legal malpractice.

There are many deadlines to be met in legal practice. Some are required by law, while others are based on the rules of civil procedure or local court practice. Some are based on contract requirements. Whenever an attorney misses a deadline and it results in loss of a claim, a loss of rights, or economic harm to a client, that attorney should be held to account for his or her legal negligence, and the client should be compensated for the losses they were caused to suffer.
