The firm has more than 15 years of experience in bringing legal malpractice cases against attorneys who do not properly represent their clients. We have brought cases against some of the most prominent lawyers and firms in Pennsylvania. Unlike many law firms, not only are we proud to right the wrongs that lawyers have committed, legal malpractice is one of the most important areas of our practice. We have achieved substantial verdicts and settlements in legal malpractice cases involving conflicts of interest, fraud, failing to faithfully represent a client, missed statues of limitations and other court filing requirements. If a lawyer negligently handles a case, we seek to obtain compensation to reimburse the client for the loss.
In addition to litigating such cases, Clifford Cohn has been retained by attorneys from different jurisdictions and qualified by Judges to testify as an expert witness in legal malpractice cases.
Many of our legal malpractice cases are referred and sent to us by other attorneys. When mistakes are made by practicing attorneys, and lawyers, the claims are often complicated and proof of liability is complex. Litigation of these claims requires the knowledge and experience of lawyers with experience in bringing legal malpractice lawsuits. Most legal malpractice require that you prove that the client's prior attorney breached the lawyer’s standard of care and secondly, that this breach resulted in a loss to the client. Sometimes this is called a "case within a case" requirement.
