Arizona Legal Malpractice Lawyer
An Arizona legal malpractice case starts with a client unhappy with the results. The first step in analyzing whether legal malpractice was committed and about suing a lawyer is to learn the reason for the attorney's malpractice. The analysis of how the legal malpractice was a cause of financial damages requires a review of the client’s entire file. It is very helpful in analyzing an Arizona legal malpractice case if the client retrieves his or her file. It requires that an expert lawyer in Arizona legal matters consult on the standard of care applicable to Arizona legal malpractice.
Why is this important?
Because most cases of Arizona legal malpractice require proof that had the lawyer not been negligent the client's results would have been better. In most cases in Arizona, an expert lawyer is hired to testify about the standard of care of an Arizona attorney, without which you cannot prove Arizona legal malpractice. The standard of care of a lawyer in Arizona is what a reasonable Arizona lawyer should do under the circumstances of the representation. Basically, it means an Arizona lawyer should be competent, diligent, and loyal.
