Can the plaintiff ask for attorney's fees for the case at bar in an attorney/legal malpractice case?
Ethics / Professional Responsibility Lawyer
Generally, no. However, if you had to spend more money on attorney's fees in the underlying matter due to the defendant lawyers's malpractice, those fees can be an item of your damages.
