Legal Malpractice

The Professional Liability Practice Group at LGWM has represented attorneys in Alabama in a variety of alleged instances of malpractice. We have aggressively defended lawyers accused of malpractice in trial and appellate proceedings in Alabama. Our attorneys are very familiar with the Alabama Legal Services Act and the cases that have construed that Act.

Implementing an effective legal malpractice defense requires a working understanding of the underlying area of law. LGWM’s attorneys specialize in a wide array of practice areas. This often gives our Legal Malpractice Group first hand access to knowledgeable practitioners, and also experts, in the practice areas at issue.

We work closely with our attorney clients to resolve claims and potential claims in whatever context arises. Because legal malpractice suits can be costly and damaging to the attorney’s practice and reputation, our team strives to provide a prompt analysis of claims and pursuit of defense strategies, including informal and confidential resolution strategies when needed.

LGWM’s Legal Malpractice Group represents attorneys in state bar disciplinary proceedings. Our attorneys work hard to stay abreast of rules and procedures governing these proceedings, and also to maintain productive working relationships with the state bar counsel.
