Seattle Washington Legal Malpractice Attorney
Legal Malpractice — Clients have the right to expect their lawyers to be competent effective advocates. Unfortunately, that is not always the case. Lawyers are people and people make mistakes. If a lawyer fails to perform up to the standard of care required in this state and causes his or her client to suffer money damages the client may have a claim. Claims for legal malpractice can only be brought within a limited period of time set by the statute of limitations. That period varies from state to state. If you believe that you have been the victim of shoddy lawyering you should pursue the claim sooner rather than later. To learn more about Legal Malpractice just CLICK HERE.
