The public often has to rely on attorneys to help guide them through the various legal matters they may face. Though we put a significant amount of trust in these individuals, lawyers are not immune to error. For the most part, attorneys recognize their mistakes and are willing to reach a reasonable settlement without consuming too much of your time with a full lawsuit. Sometimes, however, an unethical attorney may vehemently deny any error or negligence and fight aggressively against your claim. When situations like this arise, the reputations of all attorneys may be tarnished. If you have had the unfortunate experience of being a victim of legal malpractice, you can turn to Markey & Orsi to fight for justice. We are committed to helping you hold your previous attorney accountable for their wrongdoings. If you need a legal advocate to restore your faith in our profession, contact the legal malpractice attorneys from Markey & Orsi today.
Types of Legal Malpractice Our Attorneys Handle
The attorneys at Markey & Orsi cannot be intimidated. We assist our clients in reclaiming what they have lost and getting justice against those who failed them. There are a number of different forms of legal malpractice. Some of these issues may include:
- Improper conduct
- Breach of contract
- Conflicts of interest
- Theft of property
- Illegal or unfair fee arrangements
- Failure to act in a timely manner
- Entering an unauthorized settlement
- Failure to draft complete, thorough documents
- Misappropriation of funds
- Breach of attorney/client privilege
When an attorney is not meeting the standards that they should or is committing some form of malpractice, it is important to hold them accountable. If they are committing misconduct with one client, it is likely that this behavior is an issue with other clients as well. The legal team at Markey & Orsi has what it takes to prove that your previous attorney failed to meet the standard of care that other attorneys would meet. It is also important to note that not all situations actually constitute legal malpractice. Simply because your attorney did not win your case does not always mean that they were negligent. It is necessary to speak with another attorney to determine whether negligence was committed or the case was simply lost for other reasons. The attorneys at Markey Orsi are here to help you determine whether you are the victim of legal malpractice and if so, we will help you find the justice you deserve.
