A: You're unlikely to find someone focusing on that precise area of practice. A lawyer who practices in the area of dissolution of marriage cases or general legal malpractice is your best bet. The former will be more familiar with whether malpractice occurred; the latter will be more familiar with what to do about the malpractice. Take your pick.
