Thank you for your questio.


If a lawyer acts contrary to the instructions of a client and as a result the client suffers a financial loss, the client can sue for legal malpractice. Before taking any steps toward suing, to be better prepared, and to protect yourself, first make a list of all the things on which you gave him instructions which the attorney did not do; Then list how you suffered a loss.


If you need anything further, let me know and I will be glad to clarify; Your question will not close when you press "ACCEPT" and you can ask follow up questions without charge.
