Legal Malpractice Attorneys

Has your lawyer committed legal malpractice?

Sometimes lawyers make mistakes. If your lawyer’s conduct was careless, improper or negligent, then you may need the help of a legal malpractice attorney.

What are the elements of a legal malpractice case?

Simply stated, to prove legal malpractice, a legal malpractice lawyer must prove at least the following:

  • An attorney-client relationship existed
  • The lawyer breached the duty(s)he owed to the client
  • The lawyer’s wrongdoing harmed the client

What types of legal malpractice cases does Goren, Goren & Harris take?

Because of the nature of legal malpractice cases, our threshold is $100,000. That is to say, the value of your lawyer’s error should meet or exceed this amount. Examples of possible errors include:

  • Letting your statute of limitations expire or otherwise missing an important deadline
  • Tax consequences from failing to take appropriate action
  • Your lawyer’s mistake must have cost you money (the result would have been different if not for the mistake)

What types of legal malpractice cases does Goren, Goren & Harris NOT take?

Our legal malpractice lawyers do not handle the following types of cases:

  • Criminal defense
  • Family law (including divorce and child custody)
  • Your lawyer performed poorly at trial
  • Your lawyer settled for too little
  • The value of the error is below $100,000
  • Your lawyer is still handling your matter
