A: Not sure what you are asking? If you want to see if they have malpractice insurance, then like any type of insurance, your attorney should have a policy he/she can show you.

If ont he other hand you are speaking of a failure on the attorney's part to do their job, which caused you compensatory damages that is another thing altogether. You would need to show that the attorney breached the contract with yourself and failed to meet one or more of the Rules of Professional Responsibility that is outlined by Title 5 and the Oklahoma Bar.
