Legal Malpractice Attorney

Lawyers have a duty or responsibility to follow generally accepted professional standards.  When a lawyer, or his or her employees, fails to follow professional standards and causes harm or injuries to clients, this is called negligence.  This is often when a legal malpractice attorney is called.

Lawyers must use reasonable care and due diligence when representing his or her clients. If a lawyer does not use reasonable care and due diligence and this failure causes harm to the client, the client may have an action against the lawyer called legal malpractice. This type of claim can occur in many ways, such as by a lawyer failing to advise a client of all potential legal rights or remedies, failing to meet critical court deadlines such as statutes of limitation, or abandoning a client’s case without advising the court or the client.

At RAHMAN LAW PC in Paso Robles and San Francisco we are currently only taking legal malpractice cases which involve the following actions:

  • Failure of an attorney to file a lawsuit within the legal timeframe (statute of limitations);
  • A dismissal of a lawsuit due to an attorney’s failure to file documents;
  • A dismissal of a lawsuit due to an attorney’s failure to appear at a Court hearing.

When claims of malpractice are filed against attorneys, proving negligence or wrongdoing often requires the legal services of a professional malpractice attorney and may require the testimony of experts to prove the professional performance fell below industry standards.  At RAHMAN LAW PC we routinely handle legal malpractice cases in San Francisco, Paso Robles, and around California, and work with the preeminent experts in the field to obtain results for our clients. We also understand the ethical and legal rules that guide the legal profession and are committed to representing individuals whose legal representation has been below the standard of care.
