Dealing with a mistake by a lawyer can be intimidating. Clients may be reluctant to question their attorney about a problem and the attorney may be less than honest about a mistake. The negligence, carelessness or recklessness of the attorney may cause financial harm to the client. Kevin M. Siegel has the experience required to help you work through the ins and outs of your legal malpractice case and experience in dealing with these unique cases.
Legal malpractice is negligence committed by an attorney which causes harm to his/her client. These cases are unique because often times not only must you prove the case against the attorney, you must also prove the viability of the underlying case that the attorney handled improperly. This is referred to as proving the “case within the case.”
Having a competent attorney on your side to help you navigate the often confusing and overwhelming issues that arise after a mistake by an attorney is vitally important. An legal malpractice attorney will serve as your advocate and can assist you in cleaning up after the other attorney and can try to get your case back on track.
