Professional Negligence

Some attorneys will not sue other lawyers. Griffin Humphries is not “some attorneys.” We believe in holding the legal profession accountable and will fight for those who have a legal malpractice claim against lawyers who mishandled their cases.

Professional Negligence

It’s not, of course, professional negligence just because a client is unhappy with the outcome. For something rise to the level of legal malpractice, an attorney must have failed to perform up to the established professional standards, that negligent failure to provide proper legal services must have harmed the client’s case, and the client suffered damages as a result. All three things must be true.

Griffin Humphries represents clients in a variety of legal malpractice claims, including:

  • Conflicts of interest
  • Failure to know and properly apply the law
  • Statutes of limitations issues where an attorney either miscalculated a deadline or failed to meet it
  • Mishandling a case, transaction or estate due to missed deadlines
  • Neglecting to inform a client or failing to get informed consent for a course of action, transactional terms or an estate plan
  • Settling a case without full authorization from a client
  • Settling a case for less than it’s worth.
