What is Legal Negligence?

Legal negligence or legal malpractice is a serious matter involving the breach of a duty owed by a lawyer to a client resulting in damage to the client. Legal negligence is the failure to do something that a reasonably careful lawyer would do, or the doing of something a reasonably careful lawyer would not do under the circumstances.

What is not Legal Negligence?

The mere fact that you lost your case, or you lost an asset or a legal right, is not by itself negligence. If you have questions regarding legal malpractice, call Cooney and Conway or contact us through our website.
