Attorney settles claim that he shared info with accused CEO

The attorney-client privilege is among the most important bedrocks of the legal profession. A lawyer who practices in Los Angeles is supposed to represent his client, and no one else involved in a legal or business matter. That means that he or she does not go against his or her client’s interests, or share confidential information with outside parties without the client’s consent.

Not filing before time limit ends is common legal malpractice

The majority of laws in California that allow people to file lawsuits have a statute of limitations attached. Essentially, a statute of limitations is a time limit on when you can file suit. Once the statute of limitations “tolls,” you no longer can sue over a legal dispute, such as a personal injury claim.

The most common kinds of legal malpractice in the U.S.

In 2010, the American Bar Association (ABA) published an important reference document that remains relevant to anyone currently in need of legal representation. The document charts the most common kinds of legal malpractice claims filed in U.S. courts. This critical data was compiled after experts referenced studies on legal malpractice claims prepared by the American Bar Association’s Standing Committee on Lawyers’ Professional Liability. Though the data is a few years old, attorneys continue to make similar legal malpractice errors today. As a result, it is important for anyone seeking legal representation to be on the lookout for the most common kinds of errors identified by the ABA.
