Areas of Practice
Schiff Gorman LLC is based in the heart of downtown Chicago and we have developed a sound legal practice that concentrates in the following areas:
An attorney may be held liable to clients for missing filing or recording deadlines; failing to comply with other statutory requirements or court rules; committing fraud or unfair dealing; failing to prepare, file, and serve essential pleadings; or mishandling client funds. A client's recovery against a former attorney could include the amount of money that the client should have obtained if the attorney had provided competent legal services or the amount of a judgment that was imposed against the client due to the attorney's incompetence. The client might also be able to recover the legal fees that were paid to the former attorney, as well as the legal fees and costs that were expended in the subsequent malpractice action against the former attorney. If you or someone you know has suffered a loss as a result of an attorney's negligence or wrongful conduct, contact the experienced attorneys of Schiff Gorman LLC to discuss the situation.
