Legal Malpractice Attorneys in Pasadena

Holding Negligent Lawyers Accountable

When you hire an attorney to represent you, he or she is expected to provide a certain level of service. Though results are never guaranteed in the field of law, attorneys are still held to certain standards. If your attorney has failed to meet those standards, you may have grounds for a legal malpractice claim.

Common claims of legal malpractice include:

  • Failure to apply the law
  • Planning error
  • Conflict of interest
  • Failure to know or meet deadlines
  • Malicious prosecution
  • Failure to obtain client consent

If you believe that the lawyer you hired has wronged you, seek representation from a skilled attorney who can hold them accountable. With 40 years of experience in the field, our team recognizes legal malpractice and can help you seek justice. We serve clients in Glendale, Arcadia, and the surrounding Los Angeles area.

Give us a call at (626) 317-6068 to schedule a case consultation.

Proving Legal Malpractice

In a legal malpractice case, you generally must prove that the lawyer was negligent in their representation. Attorneys are licensed professionals who must adhere to State Bar requirements regarding moral character, quality of service, and skill. Marilyn Smith Law APC can help you build a case that shows how your attorney failed to assist you with the skill and knowledge expected of them.

We can also assist you with cases of general malpractice against professionals such as accountants, veterinarians, architects, and therapists. Licensed professionals in nearly every industry are held to reasonable quality standards, so you may have a claim if the services you paid for did not meet your expectations. Our Pasadena professional malpractice attorneys have the skill and experience needed to effectively fight for your rights.
