We routinely represent clients in legal malpractice claims when there is a financial loss caused by the actions of an attorney. In Connecticut, the strength of a legal malpractice case is usually dependent on the strength of the client’s underlying case that was lost or harmed as a result of the attorney’s malpractice. As with most of our cases, we typically handle these cases on a contingency basis, meaning that we only charge the client legal fees out of the proceeds of a judgment or settlement.
