Professional malpractice or professional negligence occurs when an individual who claims to have certain expertise is not competent, resulting in damages. The Firm is well-known for representing plaintiffs in complex legal and accounting malpractice actions, a niche that is occupied by relatively few attorneys. Our diverse complex commercial litigation practice has enabled us to effectively represent clients in a wide range of legal and accounting malpractice actions in areas such as corporate law, auditing, contracts, real estate, trusts and estates, and family law.
Your attorneys and accountants must follow ethical codes and standards of care and loyalty. If you believe your attorney or accountant may have violated these standards by, for example, irregular use of funds or a conflict of interest, contact us. If your original case would have been successful with proper representation, your case warrants examination.
