In terms of substance, Legal Malpractice is no different than any other case. There must be some failure on the part of the defendant (attorney), and there must also be directly traceable losses to the plaintiff (you) as a result of that failure.
In order to assess the case a new lawyer must be able to review all of the documentation. Your account of it may be 100% accurate but without the documentation, no definitive answers can be given.
There are many attorneys capable of evaluating your case right there on the island. Call one and set up a free consultation at which you should present the lawyer with all of your documents to review.
