Legal Malpractice

When you hire an attorney to represent you in a legal matter, whether your case involves a matrimonial issue, personal injury, workplace dispute or something else, you expect that attorney to perform his or her services diligently and competently.

If you did not get the result you were expecting, and the outcome was due to some failure on the part of your lawyer, you may have a case for legal malpractice.

Legal malpractice cases often arise when an attorney fails to file critical documents within a certain time limit, causing you to have your case dismissed. Other times, the attorney may have represented you without disclosing a conflict of interest with one of the other parties, or failed to bring an important defendant into the lawsuit.

Regardless of how your attorney mishandled your case, you should talk to an experienced legal malpractice attorney who can look at your documents, listen to your unique situation, and represent you if it appears you have a case.

The Legal Referral Service is a non-profit public service of the New York City Bar Association and we can help you find a Legal Malpractice lawyer who is right for you.
