When You Are Harmed by am Illinois Professionals Mistakes

Registered professionals in a variety of fields must meet stringent requirements to obtain and retain their professional licenses.

In addition to representing those harmed physically by medical malpractice, the attorneys of Walsh, Knippen & Cetina, Chartered, represent clients who have suffered financial harm because of the mistakes of a registered professional.

From Engineers to Social Workers

The majority of our non-medical professional malpractice cases involved legal malpractice. However, we also represent clients harmed by other professionals, from engineers, architects and insurance professionals to social workers in an adoption agency.

Upholding the Standards of the Legal Profession

We represent victims of legal malpractice not only to right the wrongs done to our clients, but also to help uphold the ethical standards of our own profession.

Lawyers can be guilty of legal malpractice for a number of reasons, including:

  • Failure to meet a statute of limitations
  • Failing to properly manage or handle a case
  • Failure to communicate with the client
  • Failure to file all available causes of action
  • Accepting cases that exceed their level of training, experience or ability
  • Conflicts of interest
  • Failing to act in the best interests of the client

Explanations are Not an Excuse

Some lawyers accused of legal malpractice may have substance abuse issues or other personal problems that interfere with their ability to adequately represent clients. Other lawyers simply take on more work than they can handle responsibly.

Whatever the case, legal malpractice can result in significant harm to clients who can lose their right to seek justice because of the attorneys negligence. Contact us today by calling 630-462-1980.
