Indianapolis Legal Malpractice Attorneys

If you have suffered financial loss due to the negligence of your attorney, you may have a claim for legal malpractice.  Proving legal malpractice can be complex and many firms shy away from this type of work.  We believe that lawyers, like any other professional, should be held accountable and as a firm we have extensive experience litigating legal malpractice claims throughout Indiana.

Legal malpractice is particularly complex because you need to prove “the case within a case”, as well as the claim against the lawyer for his or her own negligence. In essence, you have to litigate that not only did the lawyer make a mistake thus causing damage, but also prove that the client would have won the underlying case.

Experience Counts

Because of the complexity of two cases in one, it’s important to have a firm that not only has litigation experience but more importantly experience with litigating complex matters. Principal member Ron Waicukauski has a well-deserved reputation for successfully representing numerous clients with their legal malpractice claims. Put our experience to work for you.

Legal malpractice occurs when an attorney’s conduct falls below the standard of care to be expected of a lawyer, causing damage to the client. Examples of legal malpractice include:

  • Failure to file a claim within the applicable statute of limitation.
  • Failure to read applicable statutory law
  • Insufficient advice concerning a settlement
  • Failure to obtain information about insurance coverage
  • Inadequate investigation of resources
  • Failure to meet a deadline that causes a client’s case to be dismissed
  • Serious mistakes when writing a contract or a will that results in a loss to the client

It is not legal malpractice just because a client loses a case.  There must be evidence that the lawyer handled a matter so poorly as to fall below the standard expected of a lawyer.
