We Help People Damaged By Their Attorneys
The practice of law is a public trust. Lawyers are the custodians and guardians of the legal system. The right to an attorney is embedded in the Bill of Rights, and the right to seek redress through the legal system is a fundamental right guaranteed to every American. As a result, lawyers hold a special place of trust in America. When people are at their most vulnerable, they must often depend entirely on a lawyer for help, often without the ability to assess the quality of the lawyer’s work.
For those reasons, lawyers special have obligations and duties that are not imposed upon other businesses or people. It is why the law is a profession and not just a business.
To uphold those rules, people harmed by lawyers can sue them for legal malpractice. Just as the legal profession observes unique rules, so do legal malpractice cases.
You need a law firm with a command of how legal malpractice cases work. When you turn to Konicek & Dillon, P.C., you turn to lawyers with the depth of experience and the understanding of those cases that you need.
We Know Both Sides of Legal Malpractice Cases
While we represent people harmed by attorney malpractice, in Illinois we also defend lawyers in legal malpractice cases. As a result, we hold a unique insight into how these cases work and how the other side thinks.
We can put those insights to work for you. We can help you understand how the unique features of legal malpractice cases in general apply to your situation in particular. These unique features often involve:
- Whether your lawyer’s mistake gives you a basis to sue
- Whether your lawyer’s mistake was merely an error in professional judgment
- Whether your lawyer’s decision was reasonable
We will work closely with you to understand the many facts that can affect the answers to those questions. Our personalized approach to client-attorney relationships lends itself to doing exactly that.
Any type of case that a lawyer handles can result in a claim for legal malpractice. For that reason, you want a firm that has a demonstrated record of assessing how a case should have been handled no matter what area of law is at issue.
You will rest easier knowing that your case is being handled by Konicek & Dillon, P.C., a firm that has handled legal malpractice matters arising out of virtually every of area of law. We have handled cases involving medical malpractice and personal injury claims, patent and trademark infringement, commercial litigation, and real estate transactions, to name only a few.
Legal malpractice cases have deadlines called statutes of limitation and statutes of repose. Missing these deadlines can result in your case being dismissed. Do not delay getting legal advice if you think that your attorney or law firm was negligent or intentionally caused you harm.
