Professional liability claims arise out of an attorney’s or other professional's errors, negligent acts, or omissions during the course of the practice of his or her profession. Legal malpractice can occur in the context of litigation or in transactional work. Simply losing a case or obtaining what the client considers to be an unfair or inadequate result does not necessarily constitute legal malpractice. The issue is whether the lawyer exercised that degree of care, skill and diligence that lawyers of ordinary skill and knowledge commonly possess and exercise in a particular area of the law and whether a breach of the attorney’s duty was the cause of actual damage. This is a complex area of the law which typically requires that damages be proven through the “trial within a trial” or “case within the case” process.
