Lawyers Need To Be Held Accountable, Too

Lawyers are only human, and they make mistakes. However, that does not mean that they should not be held responsible. Under Missouri and federal law, you are protected as a client, and if an attorney's negligence means you were damaged, you have the right to bring a malpractice case.

I Take On The Most Complex Cases

My name is John J. Allan, and I founded Allan Law Group with the goal of helping people who have been harmed by professional malpractice, including legal malpractice.

Malpractice in general means that someone failed to provide you a certain standard of care. Legal malpractice means that your lawyer either did do or did not do something that caused you to lose your case. Common types of legal malpractice include:

  • Failing the statute of limitations
  • Failure to subpoena a witness
  • Suing the wrong party
  • Conflict of interest
  • Breach of fiduciary duty

These mistakes and more examples of attorney misconduct illustrate a lack of care on the part of your attorney.

Legal malpractice can seem like a confusing area, and it is very complex. Many lawyers do not take these types of cases because they can be so complicated. I have been practicing for more than 40 years. I dedicate my practice to this area and often take cases that other attorneys will not.
