Legal malpractice cases may or may not be difficult to prove in California — intensive expert review and analysis are necessary. Daniel J. O’Neill will use his more than 35 years of experience to tackle these obstacles.
Representing Victims Of Legal Malpractice and Misrepresentation
The main goal in a legal malpractice case is to identify a specific professional mistake that breached the standard of care required of a legal professional to his or her client. This may occur in cases where your former attorney:
- Failed to file your claim before the statute of limitations expired
- Applied the incorrect law for your specific circumstances
- Applied the correct law incorrectly
- Advised that you settle your claim for significantly less than it was worth
- Missed deadlines resulting in prejudice to your claim
In a legal malpractice case, it is absolutely essential to prove that your case was dismissed, lost or settled for significantly less than it should have been due to your former lawyer’s negligence and cannot be explained by other circumstances of the case.
