The fact that you lose a lawsuit does not mean you have a good legal malpractice case. In most legal matters—especially those that go to trial or arbitration—one side wins and the other loses. Dallas Law Firm Johnston Tobey Baruch is well known for representing clients having legitimate legal malpractice claims. An effective legal malpractice claim must prove four elements:
- The defendant/attorney had a duty to the client, usually arising from an attorney/client relationship.
- There was a breach of that duty by acts that were not those of a prudent attorney.
- The breach of duty by the attorney caused you injury.
- Damages were incurred because of that injury. In civil trials, those damages are usually monetary.
Johnston Tobey Baruch has a storied track record handling disputes over legal fees and grievance claims against attorneys. If you believe you have a legitimate legal malpractice claim, give us a call.
The publishing of results obtained by Texas law firms is limited by Comment #4 to Rule 7.02 of the Texas Disciplinary Rules of Professional Conduct. The rule states that advertising which reports a lawyer’s achievements on behalf of former clients “may be misleading if presented so as to lead a reasonable person to form an unjustified expectation” of similar results.
