Lawlor, White & Murphey Dedicated to Holding Irresponsible Attorneys Accountable for Legal Malpractice in Miramar, Florida

Legal malpractice cases require that we both prove that the legal malpractice occurred by examining the lawyer’s actions or omissions, and show that you suffered harm as a result. This usually requires looking to the underlying case to show how the attorney’s actions impacted the results of that case. The harm element is essential—even if the lawyer missed an important deadline, you cannot establish a claim for legal malpractice if you would have lost the case regardless of the lawyer’s actions.

Because of this, many lawyers refer to legal malpractice cases as two cases in one, where we will both investigate your underlying claim and your legal malpractice claim.

Frequently Asked Questions About Legal Malpractice Cases in Miramar, FL

FAQ: Can I bring a legal malpractice case if I believe my lawyer charged too much, even though I won the underlying case?

Claims of overbilling are common in the legal profession and usually will not create a legal malpractice claim so long as your lawyer can establish that the amount charged reflects the work done. However, many different billing arrangements exist in the legal profession. Some lawyers bill by the hour, others by the task and some work on a contingency fee. If the price was contractually agreed upon, the lawyer may have breached that contract. Certain legal requirements also apply when a lawyer works on a contingency fee basis, so we can explore whether the lawyer’s billing constituted unethical behavior significant enough for an actionable malpractice claim in your specific case.

FAQ: What if I don’t know what my lawyer did to lose the case, but it seems obvious that I should have won?

Call us to discuss what happened. It is not uncommon for clients to fail to realize that their lawyer has committed legal malpractice—after all, you hire the lawyer for his or her skills and may not have any legal training. We can investigate your case and look to the facts to determine whether the lawyer’s actions constituted malpractice.
