If you recently hired an attorney to represent you through a legal matter, you trusted that attorney to not only work in your best interests, but to handle your case to the best of his or her ability. Generally, this happens, however, there are plenty of times where attorneys fail to live up to their duty of care, and sometimes, they go even beyond this and will purposefully deceive their clients. This is unspeakable, and any attorney who does so absolutely deserves to have a legal malpractice case filed against him. We are here to help right your past attorney’s wrongs. Please continue reading and reach out to our experienced New Jersey legal malpractice attorney to learn more about legal malpractice lawsuits and how our firm can help you. Here are some of the questions you may have:
How can attorneys behave deceptively?
Unfortunately, over the years, our firm has seen a wide range of repulsive attorney actions that absolutely classify as deceptive towards their clients. There is a wide array of red flags and other downright brazen actions that an attorney can take that may warrant a legal malpractice lawsuit against him or her. Some of the most common types of attorney deception our firm has encountered are as follows:
- Trying to sell or procure any kind of property to further a scheme.
- Sending his or her clients unsolicited invoices, billing statements, or other documents that request the client to pay for services he or she simply did not receive.
- Guaranteeing a certain outcome–an attorney can never guarantee a certain outcome. Doing so is textbook legal malpractice.
- Publishing an advertisement about his or her services that can be considered deceptive or misleading in any way to a reasonable person.
- Misrepresenting his or her geographic origin.
- Unlawfully taking money from a client.
- Telling a client that he or she initially owes “x” for his or her services and then charging that client another amount later on.
That being said, if you believe that you have been the victim of legal malpractice, you must contact our firm as soon as you can. We can work to gather and present sufficient evidence to prove that your attorney breached the duty of care that he or she owed you, and that you lost your case and suffered significant damages because of it.
