Professional Malpractice and Ethical Issues

Among the most commonly filed malpractice lawsuits are breach of fiduciary duty, breach of contract and negligence. A few of the most common examples of attorney misconduct include failure to:

  • Avoid conflicts of interest
  • Honestly and loyally represent a client's interests as a fiduciary
  • Properly turn over a client's file to the client
  • Promptly reimburse a client or distribute funds to a client at the end of the representation
  • Properly maintain and account for the client's monies in an attorney-client trust account

Attorney Misconduct

The laws provide protection from unethical and illegal behavior in all professions — including attorneys providing legal services.
