St. Louis Legal Malpractice Lawyer

Did you know you can sue your lawyer?

Nearly everyone has heard of a medical malpractice lawsuit, in which a patient sues a doctor for injuries or harm caused by the doctor's negligence. Fewer people have heard of the concept of legal malpractice, which is similar in many ways. When an individual hires a lawyer, he or she enters into the attorney-client relationship, which imposes certain duties and responsibilities upon the lawyer.

Attorneys are expected to do everything they reasonably can to safeguard their clients' best interests, to avoid any type of conflict of interest in the case, and to uphold the highest standards of ethics and practice. Failure to meet these expectations can expose the lawyer to the possibility of being sued for malpractice.

The attorneys of Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC have a proven track record of success in representing clients in a variety of tort litigation cases. For example, in 2011 we were successful in recovering compensation totaling $450,000 for a client in a case involving legal malpractice.

With more than 100 years of combined experience, we are prepared to take on even the most challenging cases, and we encourage you to call or visit our office today for a consultation to determine whether you have grounds for legal action.

About Leal Malpractice Claims

In order to claim compensation in a legal malpractice case, it must be possible to demonstrate that your attorney's actions or omissions caused you to suffer some type of loss. Common examples include missing deadlines for filing important papers or missing the statute of limitations on a case, as well as conflicts of interest, fraud, or simple incompetence.

If it could reasonably be expected that another attorney faced with the same situation would have resolved the situation in your favor, then you may have grounds to sue for monetary damages. By doing so, you could not only recover compensation for your losses but also hold the lawyer accountable for his or her wrongful actions.
