There is a claim for loss of property. It may be pursued by negotiation, by complaint in court, and by complaint to the discpiplinary bar. Practically, the lawyer wont want such risk and will often notify his insurer to settle or simply settle with you directly. Good luck. Kindly rate me positively.
