Homer Bonner Jacobs legal and professional malpractice attorneys have the resources and experience to defend all types of legal and professional malpractice cases, including medical and nursing home malpractice, legal malpractice, and insurance agent/broker errors and omissions. In addition, our reputation for the aggressive defense of non-medical professionals is well-known, and we have the expertise to handle any professional liability matter to its conclusion. We have participated in alternative dispute proceedings, conducted jury trials involving complex specialty issues, and represented clients before federal and state trial and appellate courts.
We believe that a thorough analysis of the client’s problem and objectives in solving the problem should be the initial focus of any representation. Through negotiation and mediation, where appropriate, we attempt to resolve disputes early, saving time and costs for the client. Initial procedures focus on accurate analysis of the legal basis for the claim, interviews of key witnesses, and review of crucial documents. In the event a claim cannot be settled, our talented and experienced attorneys provide excellent trial advocacy and post-trial representation.
Professional malpractice is the general term used to identify all types of malpractice. As part of their professional code of conduct, lawyers, doctors, dentists, accountants, and other professionals are required to provide their clients or patients with a level of care that is ethical and meets certain professional standards. If professionals fail to maintain these standards, they can cause serious injuries of a physical or financial nature.
Lawyers are responsible for representing their client’s best interests, not their own. Malpractice occurs when a legal professional provides substandard care or services to a client that results in harm. Attorneys are held to a certain standard of professional performance. When an attorney does not fully exercise his or her skill in a law assignment, the attorney is not meeting the set standard of care and professional performance required.
