Aggressively Defending Lawyers in Mississippi
Like other professionals, attorneys are held to a high standard of care when providing services to a client. Our clients often come to us with problems before litigation is initiated or threatened. But in most instances, our clients come to us after having been sued in state or federal court for professional malpractice, breach of fiduciary duty, and other alleged professional misconduct. The allegations often involve supposed breaches of the Mississippi Rules of Professional Conduct.
PRO-ACTIVELY MANAGING PROBLEMS EARLY
Our lawyers in the Professional Liability team work with these attorneys and their malpractice insurers to manage these problems early and to provide an aggressive litigation defense when necessary. We have a proven record of successfully defending cases filed against lawyers at the trial and appellate levels both in state and federal courts throughout Mississippi.
PROFESSIONAL LIABILITY IS ONE OF OUR SPECIALTIES
Our Professional Liability team consists of lawyers who devote a substantial portion of their practice to representing attorneys in errors & omissions as well as legal-malpractice litigation. Our clients include insurance attorneys licensed in various states who have engaged in the practice of law in Mississippi
MANAGING BAR COMPLAINTS AND PROVIDING NON-LITIGATION COUNSELING
Our service to attorneys often includes representation before the Complaints Counsel of the Mississippi Bar in responding to Bar complaints and similar matters which are often filed in addition to a lawsuit’s being filed against the lawyer. In addition, lawyers in our Professional Liability team often counsel attorneys on an array of non-litigation issues involving the practice of law or professional responsibility.
