Proving The Case Within A Case

When you meet with an attorney to discuss if you have a valid claim, he or she will tell you what they believe to be the strengths and weaknesses of your case. Together, you can determine the appropriate path to take for you to be able to achieve the specific goals that you establish during your initial discussions. Throughout the case, there will be specific deadlines your lawyer must meet to keep things moving forward. Any missed deadlines or other negligent acts on the part of your lawyer can turn your case into a nightmare. If you lose because of your lawyer’s negligence, know there are options available to you.At the Louisville office of William F. McMurry & Associates, we provide aggressive representation to individuals who have been negatively affected by of the acts of their attorney. Our founding lawyer, William F. McMurry, is the only attorney in Kentucky who is Board Certified as a Legal Malpractice Trial Specialist* by the American Board of Professional Liability Attorneys (ABPLA).

When Your Good Case Is Ruined By A Bad Lawyer

To have a claim for legal malpractice, you must be able to show that you would have achieved a successful outcome in your initial case if your attorney would have acted appropriately, and because your lawyer did not meet his or her responsibilities and obligations to you, you ended up seeing a perfectly valid claim end up as a loss. When we review your case, we will examine the actions of your lawyer in your earlier case. We will investigate if all procedures were followed and determine if there were any negligent acts that impacted your claim. If we feel that your lawyer was negligent, we then determine if you had a winnable case that was lost as a result of this negligence. The law firm you select to handle your legal malpractice claim needs to know how to have success with the case within a case. This requires in-depth knowledge of many different areas of law, as well as extensive courtroom experience. Our lawyers are in the courtroom nearly every day. We are not afraid to take on lawyers who make mistakes.
