What Is Negligent Representation?
The most common claim that clients assert against their lawyers is negligence – another word for legal malpractice. A lawyer is negligent when their representation falls below the standard of care of the profession. To win a negligence case, clients must prove that a competent attorney would have achieved a better result for the client. The client typically proves negligence through expert witness testimony. Klein & Wilson regularly represents clients suing their former lawyers for legal malpractice in high stakes cases and has recovered millions of dollars for clients in these claims.
