Legal Malpractice Lawyers Pembroke Pines

Protecting Victims of Legal Malpractice in Pembroke Pines, FL

Every lawyer is required to complete rigorous, ongoing training and satisfy specific licensing requirements in order to practice law in any given state—and in the state of Florida, this also means adhering to a code of ethics designed to protect clients against wrongdoing by their trusted lawyer. Lawyers must not only have the skills and knowledge necessary to practice law, but also have a duty to act in good faith and in their clients’ best interests in any given situation. What this duty entails can vary based on the circumstances of a specific case and client, but when a lawyer breaches their ethical duties, clients almost always suffer the consequences.

Our experienced legal malpractice lawyers at Lawlor, White & Murphey take our ethical duties to clients seriously, and are dedicated to holding other lawyers accountable when they cause clients harm through negligent representation or other unethical behavior. Legal malpractice cases in Pembroke Pines are almost always complicated by the fact that, in order to establish actionable malpractice, we must also look into the underlying case, where valuable evidence may have been lost or destroyed because of the original lawyer’s negligence. Because of this, it is especially important to retain a lawyer with the skills and resources necessary to handle these complications.

Legal Malpractice Lawyers Fighting to Reestablish Trust in the South Florida Legal Community

As in any other negligence case, we will work tirelessly to establish four critical elements to prove that you have a valid legal malpractice case, including:

A simple loss in a case is not sufficient to establish legal malpractice. We must also prove that a reasonable lawyer in the same circumstances would have acted differently in handling your case, or that the lawyer committed some sort of illegal or fraudulent act. Every case is different, but we will leave no stone unturned in investigating to determine whether your original lawyer’s actions amounted to malpractice.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pembroke Pines Legal Malpractice Cases

FAQ: What types of compensation can I recover in a legal malpractice case? How will the lawyer be punished?

The available compensation in a legal malpractice case will vary depending upon the lawyer’s actions and the type of case involved. To establish your right to compensation, we will investigate the underlying case and work to prove how the lawyer’s actions caused you damages in that case. Those damages will be available as compensation in the legal malpractice case, which actually involves a case within a case. In cases where your lawyer stole from you, or charged illegal or unreasonable fees, restitution may be available. If the lawyer’s conduct was especially unconscionable, criminal prosecution may be possible and the state bar association may also step in to initiate disciplinary action for the legal malpractice.

FAQ: How long do I have to decide whether to file a case for legal malpractice against a lawyer who I believe was negligent in handling my case?

You have two years from the date the legal representation ceased under Florida law. We can work with you to make the determination as to when this date may be, as it can be more difficult to establish than in typical cases where some type of overt and obvious accident caused you to suffer harm.
