Legal Malpractice Claims

I am one of the few people who handle legal malpractice claims for Plaintiffs regularly.  There are a few quirky areas where claims are starting to arise that attorneys need to be aware of in order to prevent a claim.  The following are a few of those areas to evaluate:  (1) failure to conduct discovery; (2) negligent supervision of employees of firm; (3)  failure to communicate settlement offers;  (4) failure to respond to requests for admissions within thirty (30) days; (5) failure to communicate deadlines to client and trial dates; (6) failing to properly finalize settlements.
