Southern California Legal Malpractice Attorneys

Legal Malpractice Lawyers Serving Businesses and Individuals

At Greene Broillet & Wheeler, LLP, our attorneys take great pride in representing each and every client with integrity and professionalism. Unfortunately, in some instances lawyers fall short in their fulfilling their duties to their clients. In certain instances, these actions rise to the level of malpractice. While no attorney takes pleasure in suing another member of the profession, we represent clients in legal malpractice cases in order to achieve justice for our clients and to help uphold the standards of the legal profession if we believe they have been violated.

Representing Those Harmed by Malfeasance

Our attorneys represent individuals and businesses that have suffered serious damages because of the negligence of their lawyers. We have prevailed in legal malpractice cases involving:

We have obtained significant results in legal malpractices cases, including a $45.6 million verdict, which was the largest legal malpractice jury verdict in California history.

Our experience allows us to face opposing counsel from the strongest possible vantage point and leverage the outcome to our client's favor.

Proving Legal Malpractice

Simply losing your case or arriving at what you consider an unjust result is not malpractice. To prove a legal malpractice case, we must prove (1) that the lawyer breached the standard of care, (2) that this breach of duty caused harm to the client and (3) that the client has damages because of the malpractice. Malpractice can occur in the context of litigation or in transactional work. The textbook example of litigational malpractice is failing to file a claim before the statute of limitation runs. Examples of transactional malpractice include producing defective documents or failing to properly advise clients.

Please contact us to discuss your legal malpractice case. From offices in the Los Angeles area, we represent clients throughout Southern California and the entire state. We also consult with attorneys and clients across the United States.

[ Impact to Change ]

Much of our firm's work involves taking on large corporations, insurance companies and government agencies. By and large, these entities oppose change and will expend seemingly unlimited resources to preserve the status quo. At GB&W, we relish taking on this level of opposition. Through our many years of practice, our personal injury lawyers and staff have achieved unparalleled success in trial and other forums against these opponents. Taking on these companies serves a dual purpose. First, our efforts help our clients recover the compensation they need to move forward after a life-changing injury. Secondly, our work makes communities safer places to live. In this way, everyone can benefit from our work. [ more » ]
