How can a client pursue a claim against a lawyer for malpractice?

Dallas/Fort Worth Legal Malpractice Lawyers

Many people want to find out how to sue Texas lawyers for legal malpractice. At Nowak & Stauch, we have more than 30 years of combined experience guiding clients through similar questions about a difficult area of the law.

The first step is to determine if malpractice occurred. People often mistake poor representation for legal malpractice. A client can have one without the other. That is why it is important to contact an experienced legal malpractice attorney to assess the situation objectively. Second, the client needs to retrieve the original file. A careful review of a client’s file is necessary to determine the facts and legal issues presented in the underlying representation in order to determine if malpractice occurred. Third, it may be necessary to send out an electronic preservation notice to ensure the client’s file, including the attorney’s notes and e-mails, is not destroyed. Again, time is of the essence.

The lawyers of Nowak & Stauch, PLLC, would be happy to review your file to determine whether or not legal malpractice has occurred, and identify any remedies that may be available to you. If your attorney missed important deadlines, settled your case without your approval, failed to notify you of conflicts of interest, or otherwise mishandled your case, you need an experienced malpractice lawyer to protect your rights.
