While the overwhelming majority of clients are satisfied with their legal representation, it only takes one disgruntled or dissatisfied client to file a legal malpractice claim or an ethics complaint. If you have had a malpractice or ethics complaint filed against you, it is important to protect your rights.
At Leritz & Plunkert, PC, we handle legal malpractice lawsuits and ethical complaints for attorneys throughout the St. Louis area and across Missouri. Our attorneys defend legal malpractice cases and ethical complaints involving negligence, breach of fiduciary duty, conflicts of interest, incompetence and other forms of legal negligence.
Common types of legal malpractice include:
- Failure to properly advise clients of their options
- Failure to disclose important information to clients
- Breach of fiduciary duty
- Failure to investigate
- Failure to conduct legal research
- Missing the statute of limitations
We will thoroughly research the details of your case to determine your potential liability. In a personal injury case, for instance, a client may claim the loss of millions of dollars due to legal malpractice. In a criminal defense case, he or she may claim the loss of years of freedom.
We are committed to helping attorneys protect their reputations as well as defending them from legal malpractice claims.
