Legal Malpractice: What You Need to Know About to Avoid Being Sued

Today’s busy attorney typically works under time pressure, and on a number of matters simultaneously. During her working week, she may handle multiple cases involving different clients, evidence issues and deadlines. Litigation is becoming more complex – both in terms of cases and legal issues, – the small simple quickly handled personal injury case is becoming an anachronism.

  • We will discuss what the law of legal malpractice is, how to recognize it, how to avoid committing it.
  • We will touch on common situations that are ripe with risk, and what to do if you come across one.

Attendees will walk away with a better knowledge of practical things that they can do to protect themselves.
