Legal malpractice in Louisiana
Legal malpractice may involve an attorney who fails to render competent service in handling a client’s case, resulting in lost opportunities and real losses. You may have been a victim of legal malpractice if your attorney failed to file your claim within a statutory period, failed to perform fiduciary duties, or breached a contract. To prove malpractice, you must be able to demonstrate both that your lawyer owed you a duty and that the breach of that duty caused you harm.
