Fails to Communicate

Gives Bad Advice


Engages in Sexual Misconduct


Brings a Vexatious Lawsuit

Other examples of legal malpractice include:

  • Steals client money or commingles funds
  • Negligently drafts or negotiates an agreement
  • Agrees to a settlement without speaking to his or her client
