Lawyer Malpractice

Industries, like law, that require professionals to provide advice and counsel are especially susceptible to malpractice claims. As such, it is imperative to have an attorney who understands the regulatory landscape of that profession and the venues where these cases are heard. At Yankwitt LLP, attorneys are experienced at representing individuals and businesses, specifically in the legal sector, in professional liability claims before the courts, regulatory bodies, and in arbitrations and mediations.

We are especially familiar with the issues with which law firms and their practitioners are typically confronted and have represented companies, individuals and firms on both sides of legal malpractice claims. If or when fraud issues are alleged, we also are prepared to handle the matter – whether it is a civil or criminal case.

Our reputation as lawyers ready to try cases oftentimes encourages our opponents to engage in pre-trial negotiations and offer settlements. If we are brought into a criminal case at the early investigatory stages, we have been successful at convincing the state not to bring charges against our client. Early involvement and careful preparation are essential to good results.

One of our firm's hallmark's is the close attention we pay to each client matter, consulting with investigators, to learn the facts and to build a strong defense. Legal malpractice cases are often document-intensive; our lawyers are particularly skilled at reviewing records effectively and efficiently in pursuit of a winning defense strategy.
