Definition of Legal Malpractice

By Legal Malpractice Lawyers at The Kassab Law Firm


What is legal malpractice? Legal malpractice is an umbrella term to define a suit against a lawyer.

To determine if he/she has been a victim of legal malpractice, a client should ask himself/herself questions such as:

  • Was my case dismissed because my lawyer failed to diligently pursue the case?
  • Was my case dismissed because my lawyer failed to designate expert witnesses or failed to provide adequate expert reports?
  • Did my lawyer force me to settle my case for an inadequate amount due to a conflict of interest?
  • Did I get sued because my lawyer drafted a document or agreement that was improper or ambiguous?
  • Did I lose my case because my lawyer drafted a document or agreement that was improper or ambiguous?
  • Did the lawyer settle my case below the policy limits that were available?
  • Did the lawyer use adequate "discovery"?
  • Did the lawyer "dump" my case just before the statute of limitations ran out?
  • Did my lawyer force me to settle out of court instead of going to trial because of his/her lack of preparation or experience?
  • Did the lawyer prepare sufficiently for my case?
  • Did I get an improper or inadequate settlement in my original suit?
