Nobody should ever have to encounter an attorney who does not put his or her client’s interests above all else. In fact, the one job of an attorney is to work solely in his or her client’s best interests while still acting within the means of the law. Unfortunately, this is something that happens more often than anyone would like to admit. If you are someone who hired an attorney, and you believe that attorney wronged you in some way and hurt your case, you must not delay. Read on and reach out to our knowledgeable New Jersey legal malpractice attorney today to learn more about legal malpractice, whether you have a shot at winning your lawsuit, and how our firm can help you through every step of the process ahead. Here are some of the questions you may have:

How do I know if I have a valid legal malpractice claim in New Jersey?

Though winning legal malpractice claims is not always easy, with an experienced attorney at your side, winning one of these cases is far from impossible. The first part of winning a legal malpractice case is proving that your initial attorney, whether it be a personal injury attorney or otherwise, owed you a duty of care. This simply means that you will have to prove that the attorney was, in fact, legally your attorney. From here, you will have to prove your attorney breached his or her fiduciary duty towards you, the client, and that by doing so, caused you to lose your case and suffer substantial financial damages as a result. Our firm has helped countless individuals through this process for years, and we are here to do the same for you.

When will my legal malpractice lawsuit conclude?

This is not always an easy question to answer, as the answer is never set in stone. That being said, on average, a legal malpractice lawsuit can take between 3-4 years to come to an end. There is no guarantee, however, that it will not take longer than four years, and there is also a chance that your case may take even fewer than three years to resolve. It all depends on the specifics of your case, as no two cases are the same. If you’re ready to begin the fight for the justice you deserve, give our office a call today. We are ready to get started.
