INVESTMENT/LEGAL MALPRACTICE

 

Attorney Malpractice - Professional Liability - Legal Negligence

 

Legal malpractice may arise from an attorney’s misconduct or failure to use adequate levels of care, skill or diligence in the performance of his duties, and occur if he commits an error, omission or breach of duty to his client that results in a negative legal outcome or monetary loss for the client or a third party.

 

The four general areas of legal malpractice are:

 

  • Negligent Error
  • Negligence in the Professional Relationship
  • Fee Disputes
  • Adversary or Non-client claims Against an Attorney

 

Attorney malpractice can take many forms. Here are some examples of legal negligence that might lead to a lawsuit:

 

There are a many instances of legal negligence. You may have grounds for a lawsuit if your attorney gives you improper legal advice, prepares documents incorrectly, fails to file a complaint or other documents, pursues excessive litigation at your expense, mishandles funds or commits a breach attorney-client privilege, to name a few examples.

 

If you have sustained losses due to a lawyer’s negligence, it is crucial to seek the advice of an experienced legal malpractice attorney as soon as possible to preserve your rights. You will have a set time frame in which to pursue a case.

 

In Florida, the statute of limitations for legal malpractice is defined in Section 95.11(4)(a) as follows:

 

    "(4) Within two years. (a) An action for professional malpractice, other than medical malpractice,

    whether founded on contract or tort; provided that the period of limitations shall run from the

    time the cause of action is discovered or should have been discovered with the exercise of due

    diligence."
