Legal Malpractice Litigation
Every lawyer is obligated to exercise a reasonable degree of care and skill possessed among legal professionals in providing legal services to his/her clients. Illinois attorneys have a duty, in all situations to act honestly and in good faith and with fidelity to their clients. If you were involved in an attorney-client relationship in which your attorney engaged in a negligent act or omission in breach of his/her duty to exercise a reasonable degree of care, and but for that negligence you would not have suffered any injury/damage, and you would have prevailed on the matter for which you had retained the attorney, then you may have a viable action for legal malpractice.
