Legal malpractice refers to any instance in which a practicing attorney commits an act that is in violation of the legal process, codes and compliance, and/or rules and regulations. Such illegal activity can take many forms, such as an act of negligence regarding one’s duties as an attorney in violation of the agreed upon legal terms between the attorney and client. Legal malpractice expert witnesses are also knowledgeable in various type of actions committed by an attorney that would result in harm for the client, including a breach in contractual agreements, a disregard of the client’s case, or demanding unexplained fees, in addition to several other acts of questionable ethics on behalf of the attorney.
Legal malpractice expert witnesses may be experienced with legal aspects of real estate, finance, insurance, business, construction, healthcare, publishing, patent analysis and licensing, copyright, media, marketing, communications, or public relations. Attorney fee disputes and contract disputes, for instance, may occur over any field in the event of litigation, resulting in legal malpractice expert witnesses being skilled in unique areas of focus, depending on the particular nature of each case. It is also considered legal malpractice if an attorney were to exploit any information gained from his or her client while acting on their behalf.
