We can help you hold an attorney accountable for their mistakes.

If you have been affected by legal malpractice, call us today at (919) 373-3390, or contact us online and we will contact you about reviewing your case.

Defining Legal Malpractice

Any ethical attorney will tell you that no case is a “sure thing.” Even if you are in the right and there’s ample evidence supporting your claim, the courts can still rule against you. That said, it is usually worth your time to seek another attorney’s opinion if you believe your attorney mishandled your case.

Legal malpractice is not common, but it is not exactly rare either. Anyone is capable of making a mistake, including attorneys, but legal professionals know the consequences of making these kinds of errors and are usually careful to avoid them. Some of the most common examples of legal malpractice include:

  • Conflict of interest: taking on a client when they have loyalty or familiarity with the opposition
  • Failure to know and apply the law
  • Failure to properly plan for the case
  • Inadequate investigation
  • Failure to know a deadline, thereby preventing a client from filing their claim
  • Making personal decisions on behalf of a client without their consent

You may, understandably, have some reservations about trusting another attorney after being mistreated, but only a legal professional will be able to identify and confirm a colleague’s mistakes.

At Thorp Law, we have been practicing law for over 25 years. We work closely with our clients and develop a trusting relationship. We can help you understand what your previous legal counsel did wrong and restore your faith in the justice system.
