Axis Legal Counsel has been retained to represent a client in a legal malpractice dispute.
Legal Malpractice occurs when a lawyer breaches the California Rules of Professional Responsibility, which govern a lawyer’s conduct towards clients. Lawyers have duties, in all relations with clients, to act with honest, good faith, fairness, integrity, and fidelity. They are obligated to exercise reasonable care in handling client matters, and providing proper advice, and avoiding missed deadlines, failing to make filings or improperly preparing documents. Most malpractice cases arise when clients are dissatisfied with their attorneys’ services and believe their lawyer was the reason a case was lost.
Axis Legal Counsel represents clients who have been the victims of legal malpractice by their lawyers. Axishas handled cases involving attorney misconduct, fee disputes, breaches of fiduciary duty, breaches of confidentiality, and various other types of malpractice involving attorneys.
