Legal Malpractice

Experienced Representation for Attorney Negligence

When you hire a lawyer to represent you, you have a right to expect that the lawyer will provide competent and professional legal service. If your lawyer fails to adhere to the minimum levels of professional conduct and this failure results in significant damages to you, you may be able to obtain compensation for legal malpractice.

Legal Malpractice Attorney Mark W. Long represents individuals who have suffered damages as a result of legal malpractice in Austin, Houston, New Branfels and elsewhere throughout the state of Texas. No attorney can promise a successful outcome in any case, and a poor outcome is not always the result of legal malpractice. However, legal malpractice can occur as a result of:

Negligence: Did your attorney fail to abide by established standards of professionalism, such as missing dates or failing to file responses?

Breach of fiduciary duty: Did your attorney act in his or her own best interest instead of yours?

Breach of contract: Did your attorney fail to do what your contract required?

If you believe that your attorney committed malpractice in your case, you have the option of filing a complaint with the Texas State Bar Chief Disciplinary Counsel’s office or contacting an experienced malpractice lawyer. When results matter, call Mark W. Long at 512-329-5005.

Before you hire any attorney for your legal case, one of the most important things to consider is whether or not the attorney has malpractice insurance. In cases of legal malpractice, it is difficult to obtain any compensation from lawyers without malpractice insurance, since damages will inevitably come out of a lawyer's own pocket.

By protecting yourself early on, you can protect your rights in the future if your lawyer commits legal malpractice in your case. Asking the right questions in the beginning can prevent you from needing malpractice lawyers later on.
