A legal malpractice lawsuit is based on an allegation that a lawyer negligently performed legal services on behalf of a client in an underlying claim or legal matter. At The Bezou Law Firm, our attorneys are experienced legal malpractice lawyers who work hard to resolve complicated matters.
When an attorney is charged with malpractice, the charges usually stem from a lawyer mishandling a case in some fashion. Common causes include missing a statute of limitation, failing to properly advise a client about the details of a settlement, failing to prosecute a case and having it dismissed, and through a conflict of interest between the lawyer and the client and some other ethical conduct.
If the lawyer's error caused the client harm, a lawsuit or claim is often filed to recover damages. As legal malpractice attorneys serving Louisiana and Mississippi, we vigorously prosecute these cases. We analyze the merits of each claim, evaluate the underlying facts and law, and develop a strategy.
If you have been working with another attorney and the case has been mishandled, please call us for a free initial consultation and analysis of your situation. We will be glad to help you with effective representation.
