Cook County Legal Malpractice Lawyer
We Handle Cases of Attorney Negligence
Attorneys have a duty to their clients to practice within recognized legal standards. If they fail to meet this obligation and their actions result in a negative legal outcome causing significant damages, you may have a legal malpractice claim. This is a complex area of law that requires an extremely knowledgeable, experienced trial lawyer.
At Dixon Law Office, we represent people in legal malpractice cases. Grant Dixon has tried these cases against many well-known lawyers in Chicago. His experience as a trial attorney has given him the knowledge to analyze a case and determine whether the lawyer in question committed negligence or malpractice. Please call our office at 708-354-9880 to schedule an appointment to discuss your claim.
Where Do You Turn When Things Go Wrong?
A bad outcome of your case does not necessarily mean that there has been legal negligence. Sometimes we don't get the result we want even though no one has committed professional negligence. Your attorney must have done something unethical or that failed to meet accepted legal standards.
There are numerous types of attorney negligence that can result in legal malpractice, including the following:
- Misrepresentation of the merits of your case
- Negligent advice
- Failure to file your lawsuit before statute of limitations expires
- Dismissal of case due to attorney negligence
- Failure to meet court deadlines
- Failure to properly work up your case
- Over-billing for the legal work performed
If you believe legal malpractice may have affected your case, please call 708-354-9880 or contact us online. Your consultation with our Cook County legal malpractice attorney is free.
