Legal Negligence Claim: Failure To Properly Advise
A common error connected to legal malpractice claims and ethics complaints is a lawyer's inability or unwillingness to provide his or her client with sufficient information. An attorney should provide regular updates on the status of the case and communicate throughout the legal process to ensure the client can make an informed decision about the matter at hand. Failure in this regard can have devastating financial consequences. To name one obvious example, a lawyer's failure to inform you of a settlement offer can be a cause of damage if the case is subsequently lost or unfavorably resolved.
