Legal and Professional Malpractice

It's Your Lawyer's Job to Represent You Honestly

Lawyers and licensed professionals are under the toughest scrutiny by government regulatory agencies and their own professional groups. They are required to abide by the highest standards of professionalism, ethics and integrity. If you were working with a licensed professional who caused you financial harm because of negligence or malpractice, you are entitled to seek damages for your losses.

New Jersey Legal Malpractice Cases

Our firm holds legal professionals to the highest standards because we hold ourselves to the highest standard. Attorneys who miss filing deadlines, come improperly prepared to court or are too inexperienced to handle a particular case can result in millions of dollars in lost compensation for their clients. Winning a legal malpractice claim takes more than just proving incompetence or negligence against the law firm, however. To be successful, we need to prove the case-within-the-case. In other words, it's not enough to prove your lawyer messed up your case. We will also have to prove that you had a winning case to begin with. We are proud of our case results.
