LEGAL MALPRACTICE

Legal malpractice claims are against attorneys who breach the recognized legal standard of practice in providing legal services. Expert testimony will be required to prove the breach of the standard of practice. Examples are: missing the statute of limitations, not presenting all available claims, not handling your claim properly, failing to do discovery, drafting improper pleadings, failing to present evidence, entry of orders/settlements without client consent and giving improper legal advice.

Legal malpractice can occur in the handling of Estates/Trust matters, domestic relations, personal injury litigation, commercial/business litigation and other matters.

You should consult me as to your specific facts, but generally, legal malpractice claims have a 2 year statute of limitations and require a number of steps be taken before litigation can even be filed, so you do need to see me as soon as possible if you suspect your attorney committed malpractice (MCL 600.5805).

I do not handle legal malpractice claims regarding underlying criminal case handling/investigation.
