Legal Malpractice

Skilled Mahwah Legal Malpractice Lawyers

Most lawyers have their clients’ best interests in mind and adhere to a code of ethics and values that mandate that they put their best effort forth when representing a client. Unfortunately, there are some attorneys who fall short of this mark due to negligence, incompetence and carelessness. More often than not, this type of representation will end with a poor result for you, perhaps costing you money, jail time or any number of other legal consequences. Thankfully, when you feel that your New Jersey attorney has not acted in your best interests or performed adequately, you have the right to file a legal malpractice claim against him or her.

But the lawyer you choose to guide you in your New Jersey legal malpractice case is critical. New Jersey legal malpractice attorney Frank T. Luciano has represented countless clients in cases of this nature throughout the state of New Jersey, including in Hackensack, Paterson and Jersey City. The results of poorly managed and lawyered case can be devastating in multiple ways, but you don’t have to stand idly by when Frank T. Luciano is on your side.

Presenting Your Paramus Legal Malpractice Case

It is not easy to prove guilt in a malpractice suit. You must show that your lawyer acted negligently in his or her duties, and that this negligence was the reason why you lost your case. This often involves going back into court and proving conclusively that other attorneys in the same position would’ve acted differently, thus changing any verdicts and settlements. Just as with other types of malpractice suits, every lawyer has a standard of care to adhere to, but this is not always easily definable.

Some common examples of legal malpractice include, but are not limited to:

  • Overbilling.
  • Failure to file a lawsuit or motion by a deadline.
  • Failure to notify client of settlement offer.
  • Failure to present adequate evidence at trial.
  • Making costly errors in drafting contracts, wills, trusts and/or other legal documents.
  • Ignoring or overlooking an upcoming statute of limitations.
  • Failure to review and/or disclose a potential conflict of interests.
  • Failure to return phone calls.
  • Misrepresentation of lawyer’s or firm’s experience or expertise.
  • Disclosing information that is protected by attorney-client privilege.

From a former client with a First Degree Distribution Charge

"In my distraction focusing on my . . . trial, I failed to ask you how things went with . . . I watched and learned from you throughout that case and greatly admire the consummsate attorney that I hoped to emulate. I witnessed how very hard you worked and how you left no stone unturned. I hope the case worked out for you and your clients. If it did not (and I hope it did) it was not for lack of the effect on your part which was humbling."

From a former client charged with a serious weapons offense

"At the time, I was mortified because, having only worked against you in the Prosecutor’s Office, I couldn’t picture being on the same side. Frank, I want to thank you for the pleasure of having worked with you over the past years. I have learned a great deal from you. Most importantly, I learned that cases were not always as black and white as I thought they were when I worked for the Prosecutor’s Office. You are a wonderful attorney who not only works hard, but also cares deeply about his clients. Frank, I think you are the best."
