What is legal malpractice?

What constitutes legal malpractice in Texas? Legal malpractice occurs when an attorney acts or fails to act in the same way that a reasonable and prudent attorney would act under the same or similar circumstances, and that act or omission causes harm to their client.

How do I prove legal malpractice in Texas? In order to prove that an attorney has committed legal malpractice in Texas, three things need to be shown:

  1. There was a duty of care. This is usually obvious and is established by a contract.
  2. That duty was breached. By committing an act or omission that a reasonable and prudent attorney would not, your attorney was negligent in their duty of care owed to you.
  3. That breach of duty resulted in harm. Essentially, this mistake by your lawyer either made you lose your case or receive a far worse outcome.

Even if it is as clear as day that your previous attorney screwed up your case, proving that your previous attorney committed legal malpractice will require the representation of experienced and aggressive legal malpractice attorneys, like Ross Sears from Sears Crawford.
