Legal malpractice cases arise when you hire a lawyer to represent you in a case against another person or entity and you lose the case (or get a less than acceptable outcome) due to the negligence of your lawyer.

A common type of legal malpractice occurs when an attorney fails to file your case within a certain period of time (the "statute of limitations"). When this happens, you are barred by law from ever bringing your case to trial.

And there are many other types of attorney negligence that can lead to a legal malpractice case. The negligence or carelessness of your attorney could entitle you to recover everything you would have recovered in your underlying case.

If you're not sure whether you have a case for legal malpractice, you should speak with a qualified legal malpractice attorney who can look at your file and give you an honest opinion about what your chances of recovery would be against your former attorney.

The LRIS is a nonprofit public service of the Los Angeles County Bar Association.
