Albuquerque, New Mexico Legal Malpractice Lawyers
In times of legal crisis, most people will turn to an experienced attorney in the particular field of law their cases involve. Unfortunately, there are occasions when an attorney you have entrusted to work towards the best possible outcome for your case leads you astray. When the attorney-client contract has been breached in some way, the victim may be eligible to pursue a legal malpractice claim against the offending attorney.
Breaches in Legal Ethics
One of the most difficult aspects of being involved in a legal malpractice claim is being able to recognize the breach in legal obligations. In general, many people are not familiar with the complexities and intricacies of the laws and regulations governing attorneys which can make recognizing and, subsequently, proving the legal malpractice case very frustrating.
If your attorney has simply not prevailed in your case, he/she can not be held liable for malpractice; however, a claim may be filed for any of the following:
- Breach of fiduciary duty
- Failing to conduct required diligence
- Allowing the statute of limitations to expire before taking action
- Failing to complete normal legal requirements for the case
- Failing to return client’s money
The burden of proof in legal malpractice cases is very high and rests solely on your shoulders, but an experienced Albuquerque legal malpractice lawyer can help you gather the evidence you need and fight for justice on your behalf.
