Can I Sue an Attorney I Worked with Before?

Lawyers are licensed professionals who are uniquely and exclusively qualified to practice law. This means that hiring an attorney implies you can expect that you are working with someone who holds themselves accountable to the standards of their profession. While your former attorney may have made mistakes, those that were avoidable and detrimental to your case could be cause for holding them liable for legal malpractice.

Each attorney at Weisberg Law is committed to holding themselves and our firm to the highest possible standards when we practice law. If an attorney you worked with before failed to do so, we can hold them accountable in a legal malpractice lawsuit. Doing so can help you recover fair and just compensation from someone who you trusted with an important legal matter.

How Can I Recognize Legal Malpractice?

An unfavorable outcome in your case isn’t a definitive feature of malpractice, but it can indicate that your attorney did something incorrectly. The legal system, however, is full of twists and turns that can blow over even the strongest cases on paper. Not even a mistake on your former attorney’s behalf may be enough to hold them accountable for malpractice unless it was avoidable and crucial to your case.

That said, there are some clear examples of what may constitute legal malpractice:

  • Failing to pursue all available causes of action in your case
  • Missing the statute of limitations or a deadline to file a client’s claim
  • Engaging in conflicts of interest, such as becoming involved in a client’s business investment
  • Failing to deliver court-ordered expert reports by stated deadlines (medical expert reports, real estate valuation report, affidavit of merit in a professional liability claim, etc.)
  • Failing to respond on time to a court-ordered deadline

If you want to hold an attorney accountable for malpractice, a lawyer from Weisberg Law can help you build a case that can prove you hired an attorney who failed to live up to their duty to you as their client. We may then be able to demonstrate that their failure was avoidable and caused you financial harm.

Cases with these elements can be successful in a malpractice lawsuit, but no result can be guaranteed when taking legal action against someone. However, Weisberg Law is dedicated to helping our clients reach favorable results by offering services that can help them build them seek favorable outcomes and compensation for their losses.
