Do You Have Options — When Your Previous Lawyer Dropped the Ball?
Attorneys, paralegals and other legal professionals have a duty to act with integrity and care when handling matters for clients. If your lawyer mishandled your case through negligence or inaction, or engages in deliberate misconduct, you do not have to sit by passively, suffering the losses in silence.
Contact the Robinette Legal Group to find out where you stand. From our office in Morgantown, we represent individuals and business interests throughout West Virginia who have suffered financial damages resulting from legal malpractice.
What is Attorney Malpractice?
Professional malpractice involves the breach of a standard of care required by the profession. For attorneys, this may mean a failure to represent you properly — missing a court deadline, for example, or failing to conduct proper discovery to prepare your case effectively. Sometimes this is due to inadvertence or lack of skill; it may also be a result of substance abuse by the attorney. Either way, it's not an excuse for attorney malpractice. We are here to seek redress for you.
