If you or your business has had your legal affairs handled in a negligent manner, the attorney in question may be liable for damages. Legal malpractice cases occur when the negligent representation of legal professional claims result in the client having suffered financially, professionally or personally.
Common instances of legal malpractice cases result in a lawyer’s failure to exercise ordinary skill, due diligence, and prudence. For example, if you have hired an attorney that fails to file your lawsuit within the deadline in which such a lawsuit must be filed, then that lawyer has committed legal malpractice. New Jersey legal malpractice can take many other forms such as breaching a fiduciary duty, acting in conflict of interest, or mishandling client funds.
