Chicago Legal Malpractice Lawyers

Attorneys can make mistakes.  When lawyers make errors, sometimes their clients are permanently harmed.  What can that client do?  As ironic as it sounds, the client can hire a legal malpractice attorney to file a lawsuit against the lawyer who made the mistake.

When an attorney gives legal advice or provides legal representation to a client in a neglectful way, and causes harm to his client, the lawyer may have committed professional negligence, i.e., “legal malpractice,” and the client will legally have the right to assert a claim against the lawyer.

One of the most common examples of lawyer error is failing to file a lawsuit until after the legal deadline (“statute of limitations”) has passed.  Other common bases for legal malpractice lawsuits include failing to preserve a client’s right to an appeal; failing to properly confirm clear title to property; and failing to gather and present proper evidence during a criminal defense trial (leading to “ineffective assistance of counsel” claims).
