I need an attorney who handles lawyer malpractice in Orange County, California.

Asked over 1 year ago - Rancho Santa Margarita, CA

I had a bankruptcy lawyer who has literally ripped me off. That lawyer has been previously disciplined by the bar association and after my complaint against him, he hired a representative to work on the complaint I filed with the California Bar. At the behest of other attorneys, I've also filed a complaint with the U.S. Bankruptcy Office (DOJ).

    Answered . Legal malpractice is a field in and of itself but one that is unique in that it often requires an attorney with experience and knowledge of the field in which the case is based. That is, should a client seek to sue a real estate lawyer for malpractice (I heard tale there was one bad real estate lawyer out there, but that was in the late sixties), it could be another real estate lawyer that would represent the plaintiff against the lawyer. Thus, someone looking to sue a particular kind of lawyer may want to look to other lawyers who also practice in that same field as the "defendant lawyer." Another advantage of hiring a lawyer in the same field, is that he or she would more easily be able to distinguish a good case from one with little chance of success as that lawyer will know how that particular area of law is actually practiced (not just what the books say should be practiced, but the actual working standards of the field).
