Attorneys have essential roles in protecting citizens' legal rights by defending them against legal actions brought by others, and pursuing suits against those who have wronged them. But like physicians whose errors or negligence may constitute medical malpractice, a lawyer's or law firm's failure to provide adequate legal counsel to a client may be considered legal malpractice. The firm of The Law Offices of Michael J. Weiss has successfully taken on the cases of clients harmed by attorneys' malpractice in Cherry Hill, NJ.

Legal malpractice encompasses a wide variety of actions and inactions. Failure to file documents in a timely fashion, charging fees without disclosing them beforehand, mismanagement of clients' funds, failure to follow accepted practices in litigation, or to process cases properly are among the more common examples of malpractice legal cases. To overcome the financial and legal damage caused by a lawyer's improper or inadequate representation, you need an attorney with experience and success in getting justice for clients victimized by legal malpractice.

A successful legal malpractice lawsuit requires careful examination of records and a deep understanding of the standards of legal practice. If you are unsatisfied with legal counsel you have received, you should make certain your attorney was not negligent. Call or email The Law Offices of Michael J.
