Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking.
If the attorney did not properly handle the matter and make appropriate motions as required and this directly caused you a loss, this is grounds for a malpractice suit. In order to sustain an action for legal malpractice, you must have a legal expert review your case files and determine that the attorney did not practice within the reasonably accepted standards for an attorney with similar experience and as a direct result you suffered damages.
Thus, before you can actually file suit you have to get your case file to a legal malpractice expert for actual review to determine if there was a breach of the reasonable standard of practice to know how best to proceed against the attorney before you can just file suit.
