Santa Monica Law Firm Advising On Legal Malpractice And Bar Complaints

Legal disputes that focus on lawyers' actions can be complex and nuanced. Many civil litigation firms deliberately refrain from representing other attorneys' clients or representing attorneys involved in disputes. Steven D. Davis Law Group A Professional Corporation, however, takes on these challenging cases involving lawyers.

Legal Malpractice

Our legal malpractice clients have been clients of other lawyers who caused them harm or loss through ineffective legal counsel.

  • Some attorneys missed opportunities to file successful claims on behalf of their clients because they ignored statutes of limitations.
  • Other lawyers failed to comply with court rules, thereby ruining their clients' cases.
  • Some failed to communicate settlement offers to their clients in time for clients to make the most advantageous decisions in civil lawsuits.
  • Some failed to file lawsuits or respond to lawsuits in a timely manner.
  • Some mismanaged clients' escrow accounts.

Whatever the wrongdoing, in each case, our clients lost valuable time, money or opportunities. Through legal malpractice claims, we have been able to recover compensation for deserving victims of lawyers' mistakes.

Bar Complaints

When an attorney has been disciplined or been the subject of complaints to the state bar, he or she needs representation to defend himself or herself. Our attorneys have mounted vigorous defenses on behalf of lawyers who have been accused of:

  • Inadequate settlement offer negotiations
  • Failure to keep clients apprised of key issues in their cases
  • Fiduciary failure as trustees managing clients' trust accounts
  • Ethics violations

Many lawyers attempt to represent themselves before bar associations when complaints have been filed against them. Many such attempts have failed. Our clients in bar complaint cases have been attorneys who understood our value to them as experienced, skilled defense counsel. We have obtained many favorable outcomes in such cases, helping our clients to preserve or recover their good names and their right to continue practicing law.
