Legal malpractice requires legal representation, while breach of fiduciary duty can be had by a non-attorney as the Scottsdale Personal Injury Lawyer tell us.
"Many people do not understand the difference between legal malpractice and breach of fiduciary duty.
Legal malpractice arises when an attorney owes someone a duty of care and, by an act or omission, the attorney’s conduct breaches that duty of care and causes that person cognizable harm
Breach of fiduciary duty arises when there is a "special relationship" between an attorney and, typically a client, where trust or control over another’s affairs are vested with an attorney. The major difference between legal malpractice and breach of fiduciary duty lies in the nature and scope of the applicable "duty."
