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.
