California Legal Malpractice Lawsuit Attorneys
Mistakes happen every day in the legal field. Most of them are minor and correctable. Some errors, however, severely jeopardize a client’s case. When that occurs, our firm can help you put the pieces back together. We are Renshaw & Associates, a California firm representing victims of legal malpractice in Ventura and Santa Barbara counties and across Southern California.
Legal malpractice means that your lawyer was negligent in how he or she handled your case. If we can show the representation was so bad that it fell below the standard of care used by other lawyers in the same field and area, we can help you fight for the result you deserve. Our Ventura legal malpractice attorneys handle cases involving:
- Family law
- Personal injury
- Criminal defense
- All other major areas of law
Because most attorneys carry malpractice insurance, making a claim against an attorney means you will be fighting with the insurance company and its lawyers. We at Renshaw & Associates realize that most people do not have the money to pay attorneys for those kinds of fights. For that reason, we handle these types of cases on a contingency basis, meaning that we do not charge you any attorney fees. We receive a percentage of whatever we recover for you. If you do not get compensated, we do not get paid.
Act Fast — Your Right To Obtain Relief Has Time Limitations
The statute of limitations governs how long you have to bring any type of claim and it varies by the type of case. It is imperative that you consult our office as soon as possible if you believe your former lawyer mishandled your case. We will explore the time frames involved and advise you regarding your options. These time limits can be as short as one year, so it is vital that you contact us as soon as possible.
We are dedicated to providing aggressive, efficient and effective advocacy. Our goal in any legal malpractice matter is to help you get the result you should have had if not for your attorney’s incompetence. We seek to undo the harm and put you back in the position you were in.
