Filed under: Litigation

My lawyer did not represent me properly and failed to file suit properly and then my case was dismissed and consolidated into one against me for inverse condemnation. My lawyer wants monies for relief but he was hired for contingency and failed me drastically, what can I do to stop his action filed for MAR?

See another lawyer for possible malpractice proceedings against this lawyer. In a legal malpractice case, you have prove a trial within a trial, i.e., that the case your lawyer mishandled would have been won but for his negligence.
