What happens in a legal malpractice lawsuit?
Filing a legal malpractice lawsuit can seem overwhelming, however, with a knowledgeable attorney on your side, it does not have to be. Attorney Guralnick has helped countless individuals recover the compensation they deserve for years, and he is ready to do the same for you. The first step in winning a legal malpractice lawsuit is proving that you were, in fact, that attorney’s client, and that he or she, therefore, owed you a fiduciary duty. A fiduciary duty essentially means that your attorney is legally obligated to act solely in your best interests. If you can prove that your attorney breached that fiduciary duty either maliciously or carelessly, and your case was lost or negatively impacted and you suffered significant damages as a result, there is a very good chance you will have a valid case of legal malpractice. While yes, we understand that the last thing you want to do after being let down by an attorney is hire another attorney, we are here to assure you that your rights are our utmost concern, and we will fight to represent you, every step of the way.
