Can I Sue My Attorney?
Were you represented in a previous case by a lawyer who made mistakes which
botched your case? Did your lawyer fail to properly represent you and
prevent you from being able to recover damages as a result of his or her actions?
If so, you may be eligible to receive compensation based on the results you should have received from your previous case. However, securing damages for legal malpractice is complicated, and requires the assistance of an attorney who really does have your best interests in mind.
So what can you sue an attorney for?
If your lawyer violated a contract they had with you, if they were negligent with your case, or if they violated their financial duty to you, you may have a case against them.
For example: if your attorney missed deadlines or neglected to file paperwork within a statute of limitations on your case and barred your potential recovery, this could be a case of legal malpractice.
