Legal malpractice occurs when an attorney fails to provide reasonably competent representation to a client who sought his or her legal services. Like medical malpractice, legal malpractice can give rise to civil litigation. A client who sustains harm as a direct result of legal malpractice can file a civil lawsuit against the attorney who was responsible for causing that harm.
Legal malpractice cases can be complicated. Anyone who believes he or she was the victim of legal malpractice should consult a knowledgeable attorney. He can determine whether a strong case can be made, and explore the options for filing a civil lawsuit.
