A: You need to hire a lawyer who handles legal malpractice cases. There are not many of us who do this type of work because lawyers do not like to sue other lawyers. Most of the time, these types of cases are also very complex and expensive to handle. Therefore, you need to have significant damages to justify bringing a legal malpractice case. Generally, you will have to look for a legal malpractice lawyer in a different part of the state from where your former attorney practices. Some legal malpractice claims are very difficult, if not impossible to pursue, and these often arise out of situations where the underlying cases involves criminal law, worker's compensation law, and family law. I hope this helps, Brian Davis
