Lawyers are responsible for representing their client’s best interests, not their own. If you have a lawyer who failed to protect your interests, ignored your case, or misrepresents the facts of your case or disobeys your repeated requests, he or she may be committing legal malpractice. Malpractice occurs when a legal professional provides substandard care or services to his client that results in harm.
When trying to determine if you are the victim of legal malpractice, two things need to be proven:
• First, that your lawyer committed gross misrepresentation of your interests in court
• Second, that if the lawyer had handled the work properly, you would have won your original case
