Ask a lawyer and get answers to your legal questions
Yes, you can sue your attorney for mal practice. Your attorney has a duty to act as a reasonable prudent attorney. He did not do that by send another attorney who had little knowledge of the case and was not prepared.
You can also file a complaint with your state bar.
