What is Legal Malpractice?
Attorneys have a duty to provide competent representation for their clients, and their work must meet a certain professional standard, which is based on what other attorneys in a similar situation would do. Lawyers cannot guarantee outcomes, so failure to reach a desired outcome is not, by itself, legal malpractice. However attorneys may commit legal malpractice if they are negligent — that is, if they don’t meet the professional standard of care and skill — and if their negligence harms a client.
Legal malpractice can take many forms. Some of the most common types of legal malpractice are —
- Failure to know or properly apply the law
- Making an error in planning
- Inadequate investigation
- Missing deadlines to file documents or not filing them at all
- Conflicts of interest
