Types of Legal Malpractice: Breach of Fiduciary Duty
Attorneys have an obligation to work in their clients' best interests at all times. They owe clients honesty, fidelity, and full disclosure. A lawyer cannot work adversely against the best interests of a client by siding with the opposing party. An attorney must meet the highest of ethical standards when representing a client.
Unfortunately and all too often, clients suffer due to their attorneys' actions — or lack thereof. It is understandable that clients are reluctant to contact another attorney for legal advice after being wronged by their last one.
I represent clients who have been harmed financially due to legal malpractice. These are hard-fought cases that can be costly and time-consuming. However, I believe that attorneys should be held accountable for their actions — just like other individuals and professionals are.
Exploring Your Legal Options
When an attorney breaches their fiduciary duty to a client, the client has legal options. I can explain those options and a course of legal action if you have experienced legal malpractice. I have been handling complex and high-profile lawyer malpractice cases for more than 15 years. If you have suffered significant damage because your attorney failed to meet his or her contractual obligations to you, I can help.
Breach of Fiduciary Duty
Breach of fiduciary duty by a lawyer is common in estate planning and business law matters. Specific examples of breach of fiduciary duty include:
- Conflict of interest
- Taking sides
- Ethics violations
- Knowingly giving negligent or misguided advice
- Failure to meet deadlines
- Failure to perform due diligence
- Representing multiple clients, limiting the attorney's ability to devote full attention to an individual case
