What Should I Do if I Suspect That My Lawyer Committed Legal Malpractice?

If you suspect that your attorney committed legal malpractice, you should discuss your concerns with your lawyer, obtain your file and requisite documentation, and consult with an experienced malpractice attorney who can protect your rights. If your attorney committed a breach of duty or failed to follow through with obligations, he or she may be liable for malpractice.
