Practice Areas & Industries
Attorneys Know The Value Of Attorneys. We Can Help In Negligence Cases.
As a lawyer, you strive to protect and uphold your client’s legal interests. But even then, it can still result in a malpractice claim for you and your law firm. Lashly & Baer, P.C. provides the highest quality representation if you are sued for legal malpractice. We have a solid reputation for the quality of our communication with our clients, so you won’t be left in the dark about your case.
Our attorneys have defended legal malpractice claims through trial, especially where the defending attorney may be at a singular disadvantage in a lay jury’s eyes. We are aggressive in seeking the opportunity to dispose of litigation by defense motion and other means. Cases that should be settled are identified early, and we have effectively used alternative dispute resolution to resolve cases.
We engage in the legal practice of contracts, corporate and banking, real estate development and finance, labor and employment, taxation, and personal and commercial litigation. We immediately draw upon these legal resources. This allows us to prepare a strong defense quickly and permit the early identification of problem areas.
We have been requested by area attorneys to represent them and have handled cases involving virtually every practice area, including alleged errors in connection with securities, transactional work, tax advice, family law, trusts and estates, and litigation. Plus, we have handled attorney malpractice claims involving allegations of RICO violations, conspiracies between attorneys and their clients, breach of fiduciary duty and fraud.
We regularly handle the following legal issues for our clients:
- Business dealings with a client
- Code of Professional Responsibility
- Conflicts of interest
- Formation of corporations
- Pension plans
- Securities fraud
