When you hire an attorney, you assume this person will handle everything related to your case in a timely and responsible manner. Unfortunately, as your case unfolds, you may realize that things are not going as planned.
It can be very challenging for a lay person not well-versed in the law to know -- let alone prove -- that their attorney committed legal malpractice with their civil case. When this occurs, the clients may have little proof other than a vague, unsettled feeling that justice was never served.
Working as an attorney can be a lucrative career. Lawyers can charge hundreds of dollars an hour for their time, and they can bill for every moment that they spend with the client.
