Experienced Attorney Providing Service Nationwide
Holding Lawyers Accountable for Professional Negligence
When you hire an attorney for any legal matter, you put your trust in that individual. You believe your lawyer has your best interests in mind and will zealously represent you. If that professional breaks your trust, the consequences can be devastating.
At the Dean Law Firm, we recognize how stressful and frustrating it is to lose a case or miss an opportunity because your legal counsel failed to perform his or her obligations adequately. We are dedicated to upholding the excellence of our profession and welcome the chance to help you hold the at-fault lawyer accountable.
What is Legal Malpractice?
Legal malpractice occurs when an attorney fails to properly represent a client. It can take many forms, such as:
- Stealing money from clients — This includes overcharging for fees and lying about the amount recovered
- Inattention/laziness — Some attorneys sign up a case but fail to perform any substantial work for a client, which can result in the client losing rights or the ability to bring a claim
- Incompetence — When a lawyer takes a case but does not have the skills to properly handle the matter, clients are at risk of permanently losing their rights to compensation
Lawyers have certain obligations to those they represent. Failure to uphold these duties can qualify as legal malpractice. To discuss your case in a free initial consultation, call our office in Houston at 281-280-8900 .
You Do Not Need To Accept Substandard Representation
If your lawyer’s poor performance resulted in you losing your case, missing a chance to settle the matter or failing to file a lawsuit in time, you may be able to sue for legal malpractice. As your legal advocates, we will carefully review your case, identifying the previous attorney’s mistakes. Then, we will speak with the negligent lawyer, giving him or her an opportunity to explain the situation before moving on to more aggressive tactics. Rest assured, we will work diligently to help you seek justice.
