Professional Liability and Accounting Malpractice
Lawyers and accountants owe their clients a fiduciary duty and are required to represent their client’s best interest. When the lawyer or account puts their interests before the client’s interests, or act in a negligent or unethical manner, the client can seek recovery for any damages they have suffered.
Legal malpractice can encompass a combination of many types of negligent and/or unethical behaviors, including:
- Failure to properly investigate a claim or perform discovery during litigation;
- Improper settlement payments;
- Inaccurate trust accounting;
- Failing to respond to motions or appear at court proceedings;
- Undisclosed conflicts of interest;
- Letting the statute of limitation pass without taking action;
- Failure to properly investigate and perform discovery during litigation;
- Errors during trial;
- Improper documents; and
- Improper title search for real estate transactions.
