Boston Lawyer Representing Legal Malpractice Victims
Lawyers, like other professionals, are trained and certified to meet certain expectations of competency and skill. If your attorney makes a serious error amounting to malpractice and the result is a flawed or lost case, or the loss of money, a business, or real estate, you have the right to seek damages for your attorney’s poor performance. You have this right whether your attorney’s errors were willful or not.
Over the past four decades as a legal malpractice attorney in Boston, Massachusetts, I have seen far too many examples of trained, licensed and certified lawyers who fail to meet the accepted performance standards laid down by the State Bar or other governing bodies. All lawyers, including myself, have an obligation to act with honesty, integrity, fairness and good faith on behalf of their clients. Legal malpractice results when an attorney fails to act with appropriate skill or diligence in the performance of their duties, resulting in legal harm to their clients.
It is important to note that simply losing a case does not necessarily constitute legal malpractice. You must be able to prove negligence or willful disregard for accepted standards of practice in order to collect damages. Examples of this could include:
- Conflicts of Interest
- Settlement without a client’s knowledge or authority
- Undervalued settlement in order to receive contingency fees
- Failure to observe statute of limitations
- Failure to acknowledge court orders or file appropriate documentation
- Failure to reveal all fees and expenses
I have successfully represented clients with malpractice claims in most areas of the law, including divorce, business, criminal, bankruptcy & real estate law. I promise personal service with nearly forty years of experience advocating on behalf of my clients. If you’ve received poor service from an attorney, you may be hesitant to file a legal claim. Let us earn your trust. At the Law Office of Charles P. Kazarian, I’ll work diligently for a swift resolution to your case and to recover the maximum damages allowed by law.
