We assist our clients in obtaining justice in legal malpractice cases.

Protecting You From Unscrupulous Lawyers

All members of the legal profession are required to maintain the highest standards of ethical conduct. Before being admitted to the bar, Florida lawyers must also swear an oath to maintain the confidence of their clients. They promise to accept no compensation in connection with their clients’ business except with their approval.

A mistake that caused you financial loss is grounds for a legal malpractice case. If you feel your lawyer is not treating you in a fair, ethical manner or has caused you financial harm through his or her actions, turn to the Law Offices of Louis F. Robinson III in Palm Beach Gardens, FL. We take on legal malpractice cases involving:

  • Bankruptcy
  • Business matters
  • Class actions
  • Conflicts of interest
  • Criminal cases
  • Disputes in excess of $50 million
  • Estates
  • Family law matters
  • Fee disputes
  • Litigation
  • Tax
  • Transactions
  • Trusts

Has your lawyer displayed unprofessional conduct? You may be able to file a lawsuit against him or her.

Reasons to File a Case Against Your Previous Attorney

It is important to keep in mind that you cannot file a malpractice case against your attorney just because you lost a lawsuit. Attorney malpractice occurs when your lawyer makes mistakes that a person in their position should not. You may file a suit against your attorney if there is sufficient evidence to prove that he or she committed a breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty, or simple negligence.

Your Lawyer Stopped Communicating With You

Your lawyer must regularly update you on your case’s progress. If your lawyer neglects you, you might have grounds for a legal complaint.

Your Lawyer Did Not Work on Your Case

If your lawyer did not do research or make preparations for your case and you lose your suit, you may be able to take legal action against him or her.

Your Lawyer Accepted a Settlement Without Your Knowledge

Under the law, your attorney is not authorized to settle a case without your consent. Otherwise, his or her actions can be considered legal malpractice.

Your Lawyer Misused Your Retainer Fees

The retainer you paid your lawyer should only be used for your case. Legal malpractice can occur if he or she uses it for other purposes.

Your Lawyer Disclosed Your Information

If your lawyer shares your confidential information with the opposing counsel, that can be considered a breach of contract.

Your Lawyer Has a Conflict of Interest

A conflict of interest occurs if your lawyer’s ability to handle your case is negatively affected by his or her own interests or duty to another party.
