Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
I understand the situation and I am sorry for what happened. What is the legal question that we can answer for you this evening?
you would not need irrefutable evidence, but you would need to prove your case by a preponderance of the evidence.
It is not that winning a case against an attorney is especially difficult; the problem is that some people have a difficult time differentiating between an undesired result and an incompetent lawyer. I am not making any assumption about which category you fall into, but I can tell you that the case is exactly as strong as the evidence. If you are looking for a percentage, I would say that about 80% of attorney malpractice cases are lost by the plaintiff, but the average award for the remaining 20% is probably in the six-figure range.
There is little harm in hiring an attorney who handles malpractice to review your transcripts; you may be able to find one that would give you a free consultation, and the work could probably be done in less than two hours.
Let me know if I may be further assistance. Thank you.
