Fight Back Against a Negligent Attorney

When you turn to a lawyer for help, you expect to have an advocate who will be passionate about protecting your best interests. Failing to meet this expectation is an egregious breach of trust.

Bringing a Legal Malpractice Case Against an Attorney

The key to any legal malpractice case is proving that a lawyer failed to use reasonable judgment and care that would be expected from other lawyers in a similar case. Simply losing a case is not enough to cause for legal malpractice; you need to prove that your attorney made mistakes beyond what is acceptable for a legal professional. Our Thousand Oaks legal malpractice lawyer can examine all the elements to determine whether you have a valid case.

To prove an attorney committed malpractice, the following elements must be shown:

  • The attorney was legally beholden and owed you the duty of acting properly;
  • The attorney did not act properly in association with your case;
  • The attorney’s conduct caused financial harm; and
  • Financial losses were suffered as a result of the attorney’s actions.

Some examples of malpractice include a lawyer failing to perform an adequate investigation, settling a case without authorization, or misusing the money that was being paid as a retainer for their services.
