Legal Malpractice

Speak with McCloskey Law Center About Your Options

Many people don't know where to turn when they feel they have been wronged by their lawyer. If an attorney fails to provide professional legal services at a level typically practiced by others in his profession, he or she may be negligent. There are a number of situations in which an attorney can be negligent and held responsible to you for damages caused.

These may range from failing to file an action within the period set out by of the statute of limitations, precluding your right to pursue your action for which you originally sought representation. In addition, an attorney may fail to produce evidence at trial, fail to appear at hearings to your detriment, disclose your confidential communications with him or her to others, fail to properly object and preserve error where appropriate and, even, at times, engage in unethical conduct with a client. This list is not exhaustive, but is meant only as an example of the types of legal malpractice for which an attorney may be liable.

The lawyers of McCloskey Law have represented individuals whose lawyers have failed to file their case within the applicable Statute of Limitations, failed to pursue a proper legal theory or argument at trial or in front of the court, failed to sue the proper party, failed to give accurate legal advice, failed to advise the client as to the meaning of documents executed, negligently drafted commercial documents, divorce decrees, security agreements and release agreements, intentionally fabricated court documents and even those who engaged in unethical relationships with their clients.
