What To Do When An Attorney Lets You Down
Attorneys abide by a code of ethics that requires them to represent their clients to the best of their ability. An incompetent attorney can do great harm to a person. Unless you are a lawyer yourself, it can be hard to know when your attorney is not living up to the standards of the profession. Unfortunately, that means that you may not be able to respond to the actions of a negligent or incompetent lawyer until after the damage has been done.
If you are suffering because of your attorney's incompetence, taking that attorney to court may be the best or only remedy available.
At Wilcoxen Callaham, LLP, our attorneys are committed to helping you get compensation for any financial or other harm suffered as a result of your former attorney's negligence. Our goal is to deliver legal service that satisfies the highest standards of our industry.
