Professional Malpractice

Most people and many businesses can get along just fine for years without requiring the services of a lawyer or insurance agent/broker. But, what happens when you are in need of professional help and really must rely on the services of a lawyer or insurance agent/broker? Maybe even more importantly, who can you turn to when the lawyer or insurance agent/broker you obtained and trusted actually makes your (legal or insurance) situation worse by failing to comply with the standard of care applicable to his/her profession or by failing to comply with his/her ethical obligations to you?  In these situations, you may be entitled to recover damages for the malpractice or misconduct engaged in by your previous (or present) lawyer or insurance agent/broker.
