Legal Malpractice Claims Regarding Fiduciary Duties And Conflicts Of Interest

Your attorney owes you certain obligations when handling your case. They need to look out for your interests and advocate for your positions throughout your case. They need to excuse themselves from taking you on as a client if there are situations where you may be in direct conflict with past clients they have represented or current clients of their firm.

There are very specific rules that apply to attorneys regarding these matters, and attorneys who fall short of meeting their obligations to you could find themselves facing disciplinary actions. But, perhaps more concerning to you, these actions could result in potential harm to your case.

You need to be able to trust that your lawyer is looking out for you, and only you, when he or she is representing you. Any potential decisions influenced by other clients could have a significant negative effect on your case and could result in potential claims for legal malpractice.
