Legal Malpractice

Houston Legal Malpractice Lawyer

Civil Litigation Attorney for South Texas

Texas civil litigation attorney Hartley Hampton takes misconduct and unacceptable errors by legal professionals very seriously. We believe that it is the professional responsibility of every licensed attorney and paralegal to uphold the integrity of the profession.

As Hampton wrote in his article entitled A Profile in Professionalism,"the preamble to (Texas’s Attorney) Disciplinary Rules imposes upon all lawyers a special responsibility for the quality of justice." Attorneys are fiduciaries to their clients, which means that they must act with the utmost good faith and honesty in their clients’ interest. The fiduciary duty to provide competent, ethical legal counsel is the most exacting responsibility recognized by law.

If you have been the victim of legal errors, breach of fiduciary duty, or malfeasance by a lawyer that resulted in a financial loss, we can pursue a claim on your behalf. Contact our Houston law offices to discuss your legal malpractice claim. Attorney Hartley Hampton has 30 years of experience helping people recover damages from attorneys whose unacceptably poor representation cost them money.

An attorney who fails to disclose a conflict of interest, fails to place the client’s interests over his own, makes misrepresentations, or performs out of self-interest violates fiduciary duties to his client. A lawyer who violates fiduciary duty by providing negligent or incompetent counsel can be required to forfeit his fee, make restitution, or pay compensatory and sometimes punitive damages.

No attorney's fees unless you recover damages for your claim

Legal malpractice cases for ethics violations or incompetent counsel are often complicated and generally require expert witnesses and other professional consultants. We work strictly on a contingent-fee basis and forward all expenses for the investigation, case development and court costs. Those expenses, plus our fee, are deducted from the ultimate recovery. If we are not successful, we absorb all costs and charge no fee.

Contact our offices to schedule a no-cost consultation about your claim.
