Florida Legal Malpractice Attorney

It is important to know your rights when it comes to settling a case. Let’s say your case has gotten to the stage where the other side has made a settlement offer to resolve the lawsuit. While your attorney can and should point out what he or she recommends or what they believe is the best course of action, your attorney is there, ultimately, to do as you desire. That is why if a lawyer did not inform you of a settlement option or took a settlement without informing you of it first, it may be considered legal malpractice. Should this occur, you need to seek out experienced Florida legal malpractice attorneys in order to help you through this situation.

In any situation involving a potential settlement, you should be made aware of all relevant facts, including attorney fees, gross settlement amount, costs, medical bills, and so on. Whatever the case is about or for, it is the job of your lawyer to keep you informed. That said, it is possible for you to hand over to the lawyer the decision-making ability, if you simply tell them to take what they believe is the best option available (or if you tell them to settle at all costs before going to court). If you give your attorney this kind of power, they are able to do what they believe is right. However, if you never offered your attorney this degree of power, then your attorney must inform you of a settlement, even if he or she believes you will not be interested in the amount. After all, maybe something came up where you need the money or you just want to move past the current situation. If your attorney fails to perform her required duties, it may be time for you to seek out our experienced Florida legal malpractice attorneys. Let us assist you in your legal needs.

When you hire a real estate attorney to assist you with finding and closing on the right property, you expect them to conduct all of the necessary research on zoning and land-use rights that best fit your particular needs. After all, while buying a house is one thing, you may need a property where you can run your small business, manufacture products, or store specific goods. When it comes to all of these issues (and more), you rely heavily on your real estate attorney. They know the paperwork required for zoning and location requirements. That is exactly why, if you close on a property and find out it is not possible for you to run the business you want based on the prevailing zoning requirements, you should consult an attorney about seeking compensation due to legal malpractice.

With the help of our Florida legal malpractice attorneys, you may be able to proceed against the attorney who caused you to purchase the wrong property type. Contact Us today.
