Legal Malpractice Defense
Texas lawyers who are accused of legal malpractice may be investigated by the State Bar of Texas, the licensing organization that regulates legal practice within the state. Legal malpractice is considered to be a serious breach of a client’s trust and a violation of the high standards that the bar association sets for lawyers. If you are accused of improperly handling your client’s case, your license to practice law may be at stake.
What is Legal Malpractice?
A number of different actions, or neglecting to take certain actions, may qualify as legal malpractice under the standards of the state bar. You may be investigated for a license violation if you are accused of:
- Breach of the duty of loyalty to a client
- Disclosing confidential client information
- Legal and litigation errors
- Forgery or fraud
- Mishandling client funds
- Negligent misrepresentation of a client
