People often ask why I became a legal malpractice lawyer; and they assume that I must not have many friends in this profession given my willingness to sue my peers. The answer is: I didn’t become an attorney to make friends; I became an attorney to help people. I am willing to sue lawyers because my fiduciary duty is always to my clients, not other lawyers or colleagues in the profession. It may not be the popular thing to do, but it’s the right thing to do. Not all lawyers are bad.
The legal profession has many exceptional lawyers who do great work for their clients. However, sometimes, even great lawyers make mistakes that cause their clients to suffer economic damages. I have no problem suing lawyers who make mistakes because it allows me to help both the lawyer and the client resolve the problem to the client’s satisfaction. Unfortunately, there are also lawyers that do criminal, shady and crooked things in order to line their own pockets.
These types of lawyers give the good lawyers a bad name and candidly do not deserve to be practicing law in the State of Texas. When I hear stories about lawyers stealing money from clients, or cheating their clients in business dealings, it makes my blood boil and I will do what is necessary to help the client fix the problem. If your lawyer has done anything to harm you or your case, give me a call and I will help you resolve the issue. Let me help you fix the problems that were caused by your previous lawyer. In helping you, I not only get to right the wrongs created by some lawyers, but I also get to do my part to help try to restore the integrity of the legal profession by holding lawyers accountable for their actions.
