While attorneys on Just Answer cannot recommed specifc attorneys to represent you, I can point you to a couple of websites that may help.

Lawyer: Chris T., JD, Attorney replied 3 years ago
I suggest that you use www.martindale.com or www.lawyers.com. Both are attorney referral websites that allow you to search for lawyers by location and practice type. THey also rate lawyers, so you can be sure you are getting quality representation. If you search for legal malprctice lawyers in DC and Maryland, you should find a large number of attorneys that specialize in that type of suit.

You can't find any legl malpractice lawyers, or you haven't found one who's agred to take yor case? How many have you personally contacted?

Customer reply replied 3 years ago
Have not found a legal malpractice lawyer, I have not even discussed my case as of yet. I will try the sites you shared and will I be able to communicate with you after my search?
Lawyer: Chris T., JD, Attorney replied 3 years ago
Sure. You wll find many, many lawyers on those sites holding themselves out as legal malpractice lawyers. You just hae tocontact as many as you need to until you find one to take your case.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
