Want to Sue your Attorney? Can you?

A client can sue his or her attorney for negligence, breach of fiduciary duty and for breach of contract. The following are some common grounds for which you may sue your attorney.

  1. Your lawyer has abandoned your case
  2. Your case was tossed out of court due to a lack of research and effort on the part of your attorney
  3. Your attorney has settled your case without your permission
  4. Your attorney has misused your retainer money
  5. Your lawyer is representing another client to your disadvantage
  6. Your lawyer has made glaringly obvious errors that a professional in his or her field should have never made
  7. Your attorney has failed to contact you - your phone calls and emails have been left unattended for a long period of time

So how do you file a lawsuit against your attorney?  Well first you need to  fire your attorney but be sure to understand the contract you have signed before you do. Then you will need to get onboard with another attorney. Sigh. Yes, we know - your experience with attorneys hasn't been everything you had hoped it would be. But, if you want to sue someone, anyone, you will need to hire another attorney. If you are unsure of whether or not you have a case, a legal malpractice attorney can swiftly help you make that determination.  Call Lazenby Law Firm and let us see how we can help you.
