Attorneys are sworn to serve and protect their clients. Attorneys are obligated to place their client’s interests before their own. Attorneys are required to competently represent their clients. Unfortunately, some attorneys do not protect and serve their clients; rather, they protect and serve themselves. Some attorneys take cases that they are not competent to handle or simply fail to do the legal work that is required of them. When an attorney fails to meet his or her obligations, the client’s life can be devastated.
Suing an attorney is no easy task. Legal malpractice cases are often complicated and hard fought. Even if you have a good legal malpractice case, it is difficult to find an experienced lawyer who will take your case as many lawyers refuse to sue fellow attorneys. The legal system, which is designed and run by attorneys, often protects their own. So, if you are considering an action against your attorney, you need an attorney with requisite experience, expertise and persistence to navigate your case to a successful conclusion.
