Legal Malpractice

Taking Action When Attorneys’ Actions Cause You Harm

Lawyers’ mistakes can cost their clients millions of dollars. Most lawyers have liability insurance in place to pay for such losses. But, neither do the lawyers and their insurance companies typically volunteer this information nor do they typically simply agree to compensate the aggrieved client.

Myers Shaw, Attorneys at Law, has decades of experience recovering clients’ damages from these guilty law firms and their insurance companies. Our firm and its attorneys are highly regarded and we have received several distinctions including attorney Robert J. Myers, who is rated AV Preeminent* through Martindale-Hubbell, and attorney John J. Shaw, who was selected to Rising Stars in 2020.

Our Attorneys Can Fight For You

Legal malpractice constitutes more than failing to obtain the outcome you desired. For a legal malpractice claim to be legitimate, we have to prove that your attorney demonstrated negligence, breached a contract, defrauded you or breached their fiduciary duty.

These cases can take many forms. Some of the more common instances of legal malpractice include:

  • Intentionally overbilling a client for legal services
  • Improperly preparing or filing documents, including being ignorant of important material deadlines
  • Failing to know or apply relevant laws
  • Knowingly entering into a conflict of interest

Fort Worth-based Myers Shaw, Attorneys at Law, has represented individuals, small and medium-sized businesses and Fortune 50 corporations against law firms of every size and every major specialty. Most legal malpractice cases are restricted by a two-year statute of limitations, so time may be of the essence in filing a claim to address legal misconduct.
