When you hire an attorney, you expect them to do their job right. As in any profession, lawyers are expected to follow the rules of their profession – to comply with the law, obey time limits, respect client confidences, and act in their client’s best interests. Unfortunately, some lawyers don’t follow the rules and cause harm to their clients. Lawyers can miss deadlines, sometimes resulting in a client losing their right to bring a claim. Lawyers can lack an understanding of the law such as the maximum penalty in a criminal case, resulting in a client serving a longer sentence than the law permits. Lawyers can fail to follow client directives such as including important aspects in a contract which can cause important deals to fall apart. Lawyers can enter into inappropriate relationships with clients – sexual, emotional, or business/investor. The list goes on and on.
