If you’ve hired an attorney and that attorney behaved in unethical or otherwise unacceptable ways, it’s important that you speak with an experienced legal malpractice lawyer Towson, MD residents trust. Standing up to an attorney who has mistreated you can be an intimidating prospect. However, it’s important to understand that the law protects clients from unlawful mistreatment by their lawyers. You don’t have to “stand by and watch” as an attorney behaves in unlawful ways that affect you negatively. Whether your case wasn’t filed on time, you were billed improperly, or your funds were used improperly, the experienced Maryland legal team at Seigel & Rouhana, LLC can help.
Legal Malpractice Basics
One of the primary reasons why it’s important to speak with an experienced Towson, MD legal malpractice lawyer team if your attorney has wronged you (either intentionally or unintentionally) is that lawyers will seek to defend themselves aggressively. As a result, you’ll need an attorney on your side who will advocate for your interests with the same passion as the lawyer who wronged you will defend their interests.
When building a legal malpractice claim, our team will seek to establish that your former attorney owed you a duty to provide skillful and capable representation and that they breached that duty. We will also seek to demonstrate how that breach of duty caused you harm and how that harm, in turn, resulted in some quantifiable financial loss. This general approach applies whether your attorney failed to disclose a conflict of interest, breached attorney-client privilege, accepted a settlement dispute before obtaining your consent, billed you improperly, etc.
Whether you’ve already fired your lawyer or not, know that you have a right to the work product they created on your behalf (commonly referred to as a “client file”) during the time you were their client. If your attorney has refused to turn over this paperwork, we can help you to get it back.
