Legal Malpractice

Bringing Many Disciplines to Your Defense

We successfully defend lawyers, as well as the firms in which they practice, ranging from sole practitioners to large law firms. The underlying legal problems involved in these cases include personal injury, commercial litigation, divorce and family law, patent litigation, real estate, tax, probate, bankruptcy, products liability, criminal law, and malicious prosecution.

The development and implementation of an effective defense for legal malpractice claims require a keen understanding of the underlying area of law.

Within our firm, we have attorneys with expertise in tax law, intellectual property and patent litigation, bankruptcy, products liability, environmental law and toxic torts, employment and labor law, workers’ compensation, and corporate law.

Our size and depth of practice provides our firm with access to knowledgeable practitioners in numerous practice areas, enabling us to efficiently analyze a claim and pursue the most expeditious defense strategy.
