Most people look to hire an attorney out of necessity to solve a legal problem. There can be a wide range of outcomes to any legal issue. Losing a case is not always the result of incompetence or negligence of an attorney. However, if your lawyer was negligent in preparing or pursuing your case, breached a fiduciary duty of the attorney-client relationship or breached the terms of a contract, your lawyer may have committed legal malpractice.
Anyone who has suffered substantial harm due to the negligence or misconduct of a lawyer will likely have difficulties in knowing where to turn for help in finding a legal remedy. First, it is important for you to know that if your lawyer committed malpractice, you can sue him or her to seek damages for all you have lost. Second, you deserve to work with an attorney who cares about your future and making you whole again.
