A lawyer representing you has failed to record a crucial document or has failed to retain a qualified expert to prove an essential part of your case. As a result you sustain harm. Is it a legal malpractice?
Lawyers are not required to be perfect, but they are required to be competent. In fact, competency is one of the first requirements in the Rules of Professional Conduct that govern lawyers. A lawyer who is not competent to handle a particular type of case is required to either become competent quickly, withdraw, or refer the matter to a qualified attorney.
If your lawyer caused you substantial harm through incompetence, Jim Traut at the Traut Firm will file a malpractice lawsuit on your behalf. By successfully prosecuting such suit against the incompetent attorney, you can recoup your losses.
Bringing such a claim can help you move forward. It might also deter the lawyer from harming someone else. Jim is dedicated to fighting lawyer incompetence. Lawyers who are incompetent damage the public’s perception of all attorneys, most of whom do their best to competently represent the interests of their clients.
