Effective Representation for a Legal Malpractice Case

As professionals licensed by the North Carolina State Bar, attorneys are held to the highest standards of integrity. As a lawyer who has practiced with pride and professionalism for more than 27 years, trial lawyer Joel Rhine of Rhine Law Firm, P.C., holds lawyers and law firms responsible for their actions.

If your prior lawyer did meet your expectations regarding ethical standards, vigorous representation and knowledgeable legal counsel, you may have a legitimate claim for compensation by filing a legal malpractice law suit. Winning litigation against lawyers is complicated and can be challenging. Start the process by explaining your concerns in a free consultation with Wilmington business litigation attorney Joel Rhine.

Generally, attorneys must meet the standard of professional expectations in the following areas:

  • Legal knowledge: You should be able to count on your lawyer's advice regarding the legal process and options related to possible outcomes. No attorney should make promises regarding a result or specific outcome of a case or legal matter. This includes knowledge of deadlines and court processes and requirements.
  • Ethics: Lawyers must not engage in any case that has the potential for a conflict of interest between himself or herself and a possible outcome on behalf of the client.
  • Integrity: Billing practices must be clearly explained and understood by the client prior to accepting a retainer. Retainer fees must be held in escrow, with clear and regular communication regarding how they have been applied over the duration of the case.
  • Representation: The attorney must act diligently and with vigor in all matters related to investigation, preparation and representation over the duration of the case.
