Our system of justice is based on accountability and responsibility. Lawyers are bound by professional codes of conduct and ethics, as well as various state laws, to competently represent their clients.
A lawyer is negligent if he or she fails to act as a reasonable and competent attorney would have under the same or similar circumstances, resulting in damage to you or your case. Because attorneys oftentimes do not acknowledge the mistakes they have made, it is important to have your case reviewed by another lawyer as soon as possible if you believe you have been harmed by your prior attorney’s conduct.
The legal malpractice attorneys at MGA have handled legal malpractice litigation based upon many different situations, including but not limited to:
- Conflict of interest
- Negligent opinions and advice
- Negligent preparation of litigation documents
- Failure to meet case deadlines
- Breach of fiduciary duty
We believe that every client who has been a victim of legal malpractice should receive justice. We fight for your rights and hold attorneys and their law firms responsible for the wrongs that have been committed regardless of whether negligent or intentional conduct.
