What is professional malpractice?
Grounds for a professional liability claim might include fraud, misrepresentation, nonperformance, economic abuse, loss of data, system or product failure, or, in the case of clergy malpractice, sexual abuse.

Aggressive legal malpractice litigator
When a lawyer makes a serious mistake with your case, it is not only upsetting — it might also qualify as a claim for negligent representation. Sometimes errors can be rectified, but other times, an attorney’s blunder can be so egregious and cause such damage to your interests that it amounts to legal malpractice. Some examples of legal malpractice are:
- Conflict of interest
- Breach of fiduciary duty
- Missing crucial deadlines
- Misappropriation of client money
- Missing a statute of limitations
- Negligent prosecution
Randolph James is a risk taker, having sued more than 100 lawyers for legal malpractice in North Carolina. One lawyer even moved to another part of the state to avoid him! If you have suffered from attorney negligence, you need a lawyer with the know-how and courage to help you recover the compensation you deserve from your prior counsel and also to try to resurrect your underlying case if possible — to do what your prior counsel failed to do.
