Even A Small Mistake Can Spell Disaster
At Levine law, we represent people who have experienced egregious harm at the hands of their own attorneys. Lawyers at our Milwaukee, Wisconsin, law firm represent clients in legal malpractice cases.
Our clients are people who have been wronged by the attorneys who promised to represent them. We take matters into our own hands and hold attorneys accountable for the harm they caused through their negligence. Contact us for a free, no-obligation consultation about your legal malpractice case.
What Is Required Of Your Lawyer?
The legal profession is strictly regulated. Attorneys must complete law school and extensive background checks in order to practice. Once admitted to the bar, they must complete continuing education requirements and practice law in accordance with strict rules of professional conduct.
The vast majority meets all requirements and represents their clients with the competence, diligence and dedication to ethics that is required of the profession.
However, there are a few exceptions — rare lawyers whose audacious actions cause irreparable harm to their clients. At Levine Law, these are the lawyers against whom we take action. Attorneys at our firm file lawsuits against lawyers who steal from trust funds, lie to their clients, fail to turn over documents, or fail to file time-sensitive documents.
Proving A "Case Within A Case" In Professional Malpractice Matters
It is not legal malpractice for an attorney to make a mistake that causes no harm. In order to prove legal malpractice, we must show the court that the underlying case had merit — that you would have won your case if not for your attorney’s actions. Often, this means that we must prove a “case within a case,” essentially retrying the underlying case.
This is where our extensive trial experience comes into play. Lawyers at our Milwaukee law firm have extensive courtroom skill and know strategies that achieve favorable results in Wisconsin courts. We are well-prepared to achieve the best possible outcome for you.
