Various Causes Of Legal Malpractice

As discussed elsewhere throughout the site, there are various reasons that one can file a lawsuit for legal malpractice.

A Cook County Record article of September 17, 2015, titled “Appeals court upholds dismissal of $14 million legal malpractice case vs. Katten Muchin by heir of Herald Price” highlights come of those causes, including statute of limitations, breach of fiduciary duty, and (legal) actions against an attorney arising from the professional services rendered.

While the case above cites some alleged legal malpractice issues, it should be noted that legal malpractice can take many forms.  Many of these forms are further discussed on this site’s home page.
