An attorney commits legal malpractice by failing to exercise due care in handling your legal matter. It is important to note, however, that a mere disagreement between an attorney and a client usually does not automatically give rise to a legal malpractice claim. In order to have a valid claim for legal malpractice, the attorney must have acted negligently or otherwise violated the standard of care that attorneys owe to clients under Florida law. In many instances, an attorney’s negligence is covered by professional liability insurance policies. Lance Holden is experienced at negotiating with professionals’ insurance carriers. If these efforts do not produce a favorable resolution, we will then file and prosecute a legal malpractice lawsuit against the lawyer or lawyers whose negligence has caused you harm. Some examples of legal malpractice are:
- Improper Settlements.
- Missed Statute of Limitations.
- Failure to Perform Discovery and Investigate.
- Failure to Protect the Clients.
