Legal Malpractice

Professional Malpractice and Misconduct

If you hire a lawyer, you believe that the services you pay for will be carried out competently and in accordance with the standards of practice. Sometimes, however, mistakes are made and the lawyers, accountants, investment advisors and architects we depend upon fail to meet the professional and ethical standards of their profession.

If your case was lost because your attorney failed to meet the standard of legal practice — for example, missed crucial deadlines or failed to help you locate appropriate expert witnesses — you may have a claim for legal malpractice. If successful, you may be entitled to compensation for the harm and damages you have suffered.

At The Odom Firm in Charlotte, we handle professional malpractice cases throughout North Carolina including Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill, Greensboro, Winston-Salem, Asheville and Statesville. These professional malpractice claims include:

  • Legal malpractice
  • Accounting malpractice
  • Engineering or design negligence
  • Stock broker and real estate agent misconduct or misrepresentation

Not every mistake on the part of a lawyer or another professional gives rise to a valid legal or professional malpractice claim. While there are certain types of negligence or misconduct that generally constitute malpractice, these cases are very situation-specific.

To begin an effective analysis of whether malpractice occurred, the guidance and representation of an attorney with substantial experience in legal malpractice and professional misconduct cases is crucial. At The Odom Firm, we can offer you an honest assessment of your case and a knowledgeable discussion of your options.
