Handling Legal Malpractice Claims In Tennessee

At The Vaughan Law Firm, we understand that when you already feel like you've been "burned by an attorney once," walking into another attorney's law office and asking them to help you sue your former lawyer can feel like asking for more trouble. What we also understand is that there are exceptionally few law firms willing to take on legal malpractice cases and that victims need someplace they can turn to for help.

Our lawyers have seen many different examples of legal malpractice over the last 35 years. If you believe you've been a victim of legal malpractice in a family law or divorce claim, or any other type of legal matter, we will advise you of your options. Some of the common mistakes we see again and again include:

  • Missing a statute of limitations
  • Missing a filing deadline
  • Failing to subpoena witnesses
  • Failing to take an action that results in serious tax or financial consequences to their client
  • Trying to cover up a previous mistake

Legal Malpractice And Personal Injury Cases

If a plaintiff's personal injury attorney makes a mistake or is careless and ultimately loses the case, he or she may have committed some amount of professional negligence. However, unless the client can prove they would have won the case but for the attorney's mistake, they cannot succeed on a legal malpractice claim.

As a firm that's been handling personal injury cases for people in east Tennessee since the 1970s, we are able to identify the mistakes that previous attorneys made and to make compelling arguments before judges and juries. We strongly advocate for our clients to get the compensation they deserve.
