A couple consults a lawyer to discuss legal malpracticeLegal malpractice claims can be challenging. Often, attorneys are hesitant to cast blame on their peers. At the Boughter Law Office, however, we remember that the client is the most important factor in any case. It is the client who will have to suffer the penalties and consequences if we fail to adequately protect his or her interests. Mistakes can happen, but when legal professionals fall below the standard of care, they need to own their mistakes and do what is right for the client. Many times attorneys miss the Statute of Limitation deadline to file your lawsuit or fail to name the correct party. Rest assured, the Boughter Law Office will review your case and if you have a viable claim we will seek to hold the at fault attorney liable for his or her acts or omissions.

Most often, legal malpractice claims stem from the statute of limitations. During a case, certain actions such as submitting paperwork must be accomplished in a specific amount of time. If the proper action is not taken before the specified deadline, there might be serious consequences. If your attorney has not followed the proper procedures, contact our office.

In Indiana, you have every right to hold your lawyer accountable for his or her actions. We will examine court transcripts to determine if legal malpractice can be claimed. Based on errors, simple mistakes or gross miscalculations, our firm will determine the viability of your malpractice case. It is important to remember that a loss in court is not always indicative of legal malpractice. Let a skilled Fort Wayne legal malpractice attorney investigate your claim and provide clear direction about how to proceed.
