Hello. My name is***** am an attorney. I will review your question. I may need to clarify facts first. I will answer & we can discuss issues.
What information are you looking to obtain? How to file a suit? By the way, did you have a written retainer agreement?
It sounds like you have a possible case. Lawyers have a duty to their clients to act in a reasonable manner. A lawyer can be found negligent if he or she fails to live up to that duty either through action or through inaction. This includes cases where the attorney: fails to communicate, misses deadlines gives bad advice, negligently drafts or negotiates agreements, and other related reasons. From you say, for example, that the attorney "forgot to file" would be a fact that could lead to a malpractice claims among other facts.
