What constitutes a negligent attorney strategy?
First, you should understand that an attorney simply not winning your case does not necessarily qualify for legal malpractice, not dissimilar to when a doctor’s course of treatment does not go as planned. However, if you believe that your attorney took up a strategy that was clearly negligent, such as being too aggressive, not persistent enough, misguided, or simply unethical) you may very well have grounds for a legal malpractice lawsuit.
However, winning legal malpractice lawsuits is seldom easy, which is why you must ensure you hire an attorney who is capable of righting your previous attorney’s wrongs. Our firm has helped countless individuals through the years, and we know we have what it takes to do the same for you. We will work to prove that a reasonable attorney would not have made the same mistake as your previous attorney, that your previous attorney breached his or her duty of care, and that had he or she not done so, you would have won your case.
Examples of Negligent Strategies
Some of the most common types of negligent attorney strategies that our firm sees are as follows:
- Not fighting pre-trial motions, or inadequately doing so
- Not filing the proper cross-motions
- Failing to consider potential insurance implications
- Not using a workable theme in the trial
- Delaying work on a case because he or she assumed that the settlement offer will improve as time goes on
