Suing Lawyers in Houston
In Texas, attorneys are required to zealously represent their client’s interests above their own. Attorney negligence can be easy to define in cases where the lawyer steals, lies, or disregards facts that ultimately results in financial damages to a client. In other instances attorney negligence may be harder to find such as in cases conflicts of interest, failure of due diligence, or misrepresentation. To prove up a case of attorney malpractice, one must show:
- An attorney/client relationship actually existed
- The attorney deviated from an established standard of care
- The client suffered an injury
- The damages suffered resulted from the attorney’s deviation from that established standard of care
