WHO WE ARE
We are skilled Michigan attorneys who selectively and seriously undertake attorney malpractice and related claims against lawyers and law firms when the circumstances warrant.
We have a proven record of successfully pursuing significant cases of malpractice involving Michigan attorneys.
Our legal malpractice cases often involve issues of missed deadlines, misapplied law, and overlooked conflicts of interest. In the cases that we pursue, a mistake by a law firm has led to serious harm impacting the future of an individual, a family or a business.
