All attorneys are held to a high standard of ethical conduct under the Code of Professional Responsibility. If any attorney violates this ethical code of conduct, he or she faces possible sanctions and even disbarment. If the attorney that you hired and trusted with your case violated the ethical code of conduct, harming you and your claim, you may have a claim for legal malpractice.
At Weisberg Law, we help individuals who are victims of unethical conduct by their attorneys. When a client hires an attorney, that person is putting his or her utmost trust and faith in the attorney to represent his or her side of the case not only to the best of his or her ability, but with honesty and integrity. Stealing from a client's trust/escrow accounts and failing to obtain settlement authority prior to settling a case are examples of conduct that give cause for disciplinary proceedings and actions. We can represent you in a legal malpractice claim against your attorney and seek proper damages.
For a free consultation with our Philadelphia ethical violations attorney about the merits of your claim for legal malpractice or the ethical violations of an attorney, please contact us in Philadelphia, Morton or Pennsauken.
