There is nothing worse than hiring an attorney you trusted to help you in your time of need, only to find that your attorney deliberately deceived you in some way. Not only is this morally reprehensive, but it is also unlawful. Attorneys are legally obligated to defend the best interests of their clients through every step of the legal process, and purposefully deceiving their clients is the exact opposite of this. The bottom line is that if you believe that your attorney deceived you and either caused you to lose your case or directly harmed the outcome of your case in some way, there is a very good chance that you will have a valid legal malpractice claim. Please continue reading and speak with our knowledgeable New Jersey legal malpractice attorney to learn more about suing attorneys for deception and how our firm can work to attain the justice you deserve. Here are some of the questions you may have regarding the legal process ahead:
What are some of the most common examples of attorney deception?
There are several different actions that may qualify as deception. Some of the most common examples of attorney deception that our firm has seen over the years are as follows:
- Attempting to sell or acquire any kind of property to further some sort of a scheme.
- Billing or requesting that clients make certain payments that are unsolicited and unwarranted.
- Accepting or soliciting money from a client unlawfully.
- Changing the amount that a client owes after originally agreeing upon a certain price for their services.
- Promising a client that he or she will win their case, or otherwise leading a client to believe that a win was “guaranteed.”
- Publishing misleading or downright dishonest advertisements regarding their services.
As long as you can prove that your attorney owed you a duty of care, breached that duty of care by knowingly or intentionally deceiving you, and that deception either caused you to lose your case or caused you to incur significant damages, there is a very good chance that you will have a valid legal malpractice claim.
