Somerset County Legal Malpractice Attorneys
Representing clients in NJ who need to bring a legal malpractice lawsuit
Hiring an attorney for a legal matter is a significant moment in one’s life. When facing serious legal problems that deserve the attention of an attorney, you deserve the right representation that will go above and beyond the call of duty to ensure that your rights and interests are protected. Regardless of the award for the attorney, each client and case should be treated in the same fashion. No case should supersede another.

We take these cases personally because we expect everyone who passes The Bar to uphold the same threshold of service like we do. Lawyers take an oath to zealously represent clients to the fullest of one’s ability. When attorneys act negligently, our firm is ready to step in.

Going a step further, we are fully prepared to file a complaint with the State Bar Association on your behalf. If you need an attorney that has a passion for the law and will fight for the integrity of the profession, contact Siragusa Law Firm.
What are some signs of legal malpractice?
It is important to protect yourself when your attorney is not providing the legal services you deserve. If you lost your case, you should ask yourself why. Was it because of the negligence of your attorney? Some signs of legal malpractice include:
- Conflicts of interest
- Breach of confidentiality
- Failure to meet deadlines or file critical documents
- Allowing the statute of limitations to expire on a case
- Failure to understand the law
- Failure to communicate with the client
- General misconduct, including threats and harassment
When your legal situation is impacted by any of the above, it is important to have quality legal support to help you assess your legal malpractice case. To develop your case, we will work to establish that the attorney did not meet the standard of care, what a normal, competent attorney would meet when handling your legal matter. If you lost your case or the case was dismissed in favor of the other party, you may need to consult with an attorney.
Not all situations constitute legal malpractice
Sometimes, what looks like legal malpractice isn’t legal malpractice. Just because you may have lost your case doesn’t mean that the attorney acted negligently. Even in situations where another attorney would have taken a different approach, legal malpractice may not be the case. It is important for you to consult with an effective attorney who can assess your legal matter.
