Legal Malpractice Lawyers
ATTORNEYS ARE ENTRUSTED WITH IMPORTANT MATTERS THAT CAN IMPACT THE LIVES OF THEIR CLIENTS IN PROFOUND WAYS.
When an attorney fails to meet their professional responsibility by practicing negligently, dishonestly or incompetently, a client can sue that attorney for damages, but this calls for mature counsel with strong legal knowledge and strong courtroom skills.
At Rieders, Travis, Humphrey, Waters & Dohrmann, our experienced legal malpractice lawyers represent clients in legal malpractice cases, in addition to other professional malpractice matters such as medical malpractice. With the majority of our attorneys offering more than 20 years of practice experience, we understand what constitutes legal malpractice in Pennsylvania, and we understand what it actually takes to win a malpractice case.
Many legal malpractice claims arise in the context of Marcellus Shale property searches, right-of-way issues and other gas-related problems.
