Some clients have to pick a client under a quick-moving, stressful situation, like being arrested or being surprised with divorce papers. Other clients have the benefit of being able to carefully consider their choice of attorney. No matter the circumstances of choosing your attorney, you expect that your attorney will be a vigorous advocate in protecting your rights and interests. However, what do you do when your attorney makes a negligent error that causes you to lose your case or suffer a less-than-favorable outcome, or when your attorney commits illegal or unethical conduct?
When you are harmed by an attorney’s negligence, you may wish to pursue a legal malpractice claim. But legal malpractice cases are complex, so to give yourself the best chance of success in your claim, you should have an experienced legal malpractice attorney by your side. However, choosing an attorney to trust to advocate for you after another attorney has already violated your confidence can be difficult for anyone to do.
At Team Law, our attorneys understand how difficult it can be to trust attorneys to fight for you after you’ve already been harmed by another attorney. This is why we strive to treat you and your case with the respect and seriousness that you deserve. We believe that one attorney’s negligence harms the whole legal profession. We put all our substantial expertise and resources to work to hold unprofessional attorneys accountable for their harmful conduct and to get you the financial recovery that you need and deserve. Contact Team Law today to schedule a no-cost consultation to learn more about your rights and options.
An attorney can provide negligent representation at any step of a client’s case or legal matter. At Team Law, we undertake a thorough investigation to uncover the evidence to show that your attorney’s negligence actually rose to the level of legal malpractice. Examples of legal malpractice that our firm often sees include:
A successful legal malpractice case requires proving that your attorney was negligent in his or her representation, that your case or legal matter had a bad or less than favorable outcome as a result of your attorney’s negligence conduct, and that you suffered some compensable harm as a result. Our firm works tirelessly to prove each element of your legal malpractice claim. We understand the complexity of legal malpractice cases and know that they are effectively a “case within a case” since we must not only argue your attorney’s negligent conduct but also argue about your underlying case or legal matter.
If you believe you have suffered financial harm or injury to your rights because of your attorney’s negligent conduct, schedule a free consultation with the Union City legal malpractice attorneys of Team Law today.

Union City is a city located in Hudson County, New Jersey. As of the 2010 Census, Union City was the second-most densely populated city in the United States, with a population density of more than 51,000 people per square mile. Union City was formally incorporated in 1925 with the merger of the municipalities of Union Hill and West Hoboken Township; the remaining portions of West Hoboken Township were taken to form West New York. Union City gets its name from the fact that it was formed from the “union” of two communities. Union City gets its two nicknames, the “Embroidery Capital of the United States” and “Little Havana on the Hudson” from two major waves of immigration that have come through Union City. The first wave of German and Dutch speakers who came to the area in the mid-19th century, established a European-style lacemaking and embroidery industry. The second wave of Cubans, who were initially attracted by the famed embroidery industry and picked up in numbers following Fidel Castro’s rise to power in 1962 and the Mariel boatlift in 1980, gave Union City the largest number of Cuban Americans outside of Miami.
Not necessarily. If you decide to terminate your attorney’s services due to your dissatisfaction with his or her performance, you may still be contractually obligated to pay the sums due under your fee agreement with your attorney. Even if you are able to prove your legal malpractice claim against your attorney, your economic losses may have a different measure other than the money you paid to your attorney for his or her services.
Yes. Our legal malpractice attorneys can help you explore and understand the options available to you for resolving your disputes with your former lawyer or for holding your lawyer accountable for negligent conduct. For example, there are fee arbitration services available if you have a dispute over fees with your attorney. We can also help you negotiate a settlement if you have a claim for compensation against your attorney, or we can help you pursue your claim through alternative dispute resolution if you wish to avoid the time and expense of a lawsuit in court.
