It takes a sharp, savvy, and tenacious attorney to win a legal malpractice case. Thankfully, with the assistance of our experienced Nashville legal malpractice attorneys, you can rest well knowing you’re in good hands. These types of cases can require tremendous diligence, including gathering expert testimonies, evaluating standards of care, and addressing potential “cases within cases.” While occasionally these cases are straightforward, most are complex.

• Administrative errors (scheduling or other clerical errors)

• Substantive errors, misunderstanding of laws
• Intentional wrongdoing such as fraud, theft, libel, or malicious persecution
• Client relation errors, ignoring client requests or direction
