Has your lawyer messed up your case in Missouri?  Contact Mr. Campbell today for the experienced legal help you need!  You will never pay a fee unless we get money for you!

With over forty years of Missouri legal experience, Mr. Campbell gets the results you need.  He has collected Millions of Dollars for his clients who have been injured in Missouri, just like you.  He focuses his legal malpractice services on all Missouri towns south of I-70 Highway including: Kansas City, Warrensburg, Sedalia, Columbia, Jefferson City, Washington, Rolla, Lebanon, Farmington, Cape Girardeau, Carthage, Springfield, Joplin, West Plains, Poplar Bluff, and Lake of the Ozarks.

When you have a legal problem, you need a good lawyer.  You make your choice of a lawyer and you place your trust, your families’ future, and your finances in that lawyer’s hands.  If your attorney messes up your case, what should you do?  If you want to file a legal claim against your lawyer, you will have to prove in Missouri that his or her performance fell below generally accepted standards for an attorney.  For example, a legal malpractice claim may allege that legal documents were not properly completed or filed, that errors were made in the interpretation of law, that other improper legal advice was given to a client, or that a deadline was missed.  You may think it is difficult to sue a lawyer.  And it is.    

Legal malpractice claims are difficult to win, but when an attorney malpractice claim is paid, it is usually large.  According to the Missouri Department of Insurance there were 267 Missouri legal malpractice claims closed in 2013, of which only 21 resulted in money payouts.  Those 21 claims paid though totaled $3.1 million.  So while most (246) legal malpractice claims resulted in no money paid at all, the average amount of money paid on a successful lawyer malpractice claim in 2013 was $149,794, down from $189,209 in 2012.  In 2013, the most common attorney malpractice claims were associated with alleged mishandling of cases involving real estate (48 closed claims; 2 paid claims), Plaintiff’s bodily injury and property damage (45 claims, 3 paid claims), collection and bankruptcy (42 closed claims, 1 paid claim), family law (30 claims, 5 paid claims), and corporate and business organization (29 claims, 4 paid claims).  Surprisingly, most attorneys who had malpractice claims paid on their behalf in 2013 were experienced lawyers who had been in practice for over 10 years.   

It is important to keep in mind that any claimed malpractice on the part of an attorney must have resulted in financial loss to you as the injured client.  Unless your lawyer acted in such a way that it caused you financial harm, you do not have grounds for a legal malpractice case.

Before meeting with Mr. Campbell, you can take the following steps now in preparation for any action taken against your attorney:

·        Collect any and all records involving your interactions with your lawyer

·        Request a copy of your lawyer's file regarding your case, as it’s your right to get a copy of your file

·        Request from the court a copy of any files related to your case

Since important information can disappear and memories fade, it's important to call Mr. Campbell sooner rather than later if you believe your lawyer provided you incompetent representation.

Don't let your former attorney convince you that he or she did everything possible to provide competent representation of your interests. If you suspect you have been the victim of legal malpractice, contact Mr. Campbell today for a free consultation to discuss your case.

You will never pay a fee unless we get money for you!
