For most people, hiring an attorney is an infrequent experience. No matter what type of case you have, once you have decided to hire that attorney, you expect that he or she will represent you competently, always putting your interests first. You expect your lawyer will be someone you can trust with your case, your money and even your secrets. If a mistake is made in the handling of your legal matter, there can be serious consequences. You may lose a significant sum of money; you may lose property rights; you may lose your freedom. In such cases, you have the right to recover compensation for your lawyer's negligence.
Phillips Carson & Phillips handles cases against negligent and careless lawyers. Attorney Phillips was the first attorney in Savannah to pursue legal malpractice claims in South Georgia. He believes there is no excuse for careless legal work. His firm stands ready to help you if you have suffered wrongdoing at the hands of a negligent lawyer.
Our Firm Is Committed To Protecting You And Your Rights
In Georgia, proving malpractice or professional negligence is difficult. The defendant's negligence must be clearly demonstrated. Likewise, you must be able to show that your case would likely have resulted favorably had it not been for your lawyer's mistakes.
We work hard to prepare the strongest possible malpractice claims for our clients. We can help you recover damages from a variety of legal errors, including:
- Missed deadlines
- Ethics violations
- Misappropriation of funds
- Failures of communication and disclosure
- Violations of attorney-client privilege
- Conflicts of interest
- Failure to properly prepare a case
- Practicing law without a license
Honest lawyers make honest mistakes. Others knowingly attempt to deceive their clients. No matter the situation, the attorneys at Phillips Carson & Phillips will strive to hold responsible those who have violated your trust.
