We’re proud to announce that the New York Law Journal published out Outside Counsel column entitled “The Basics of Legal Malpractice” today.
We hope you enjoy. “The term “legal malpractice” is loosely used, not only by the public but by attorneys as well. Generically, it conveys something wrong, boneheaded or contrary to the way things are usually done. It can sometimes mean that otherwise reputable work ended in a bad result.
When attorneys comment on the work of other attorneys, they often resort to an attorney malpractice scale. What they mean is that another attorney’s work fell below the standard believed to be “good and acceptable.” However, departure from good practice is just the start of the analysis.”
