What constitutes legal malpractice in Texas?

There are many ways in which your attorney can commit legal malpractice in Texas, but what they all have in common is your lawyer violating their duty of care to you, the client. To succeed in your case against your prior attorney, the attorneys at Sears Crawford must prove the following:

  1. Your lawyer owed you a duty. Because lawyers usually sign contracts with their clients, it is usually pretty simple to prove that you had an attorney-client relationship, and therefore your attorney owed you a duty of care.
  2. That duty was breached. Your lawyer acted or failed to act in a way that a reasonable and prudent attorney would have acted or not acted under the same or similar circumstances. 
  3. That breach of duty caused you, the client, harm. By this action or inaction, your attorney altered your case for the worse. Had they acted reasonably and prudently, your case would have been better off. 

How do I prove legal malpractice in Texas? While it might be obvious to you that your attorney screwed up your case, proving it will require hiring the best legal malpractice attorney that you possibly can. 

Don’t go up against your previous lawyer without a malpractice lawyer at your side, preferably one you can trust. Make sure that your new attorney carries malpractice insurance — Sears Crawford does, although we’ve never had to use it.
