Expert Witness For Attorney Malpractice Cases

Testifying With Respect To The Duties Of Trust And Estate Lawyers

Attorneys providing estate planning and administration services have a responsibility to provide their clients with competent advice and diligent representation. In addition, they must avoid conflicts of interest and other unethical conduct. In any case involving a malpractice claim against a trust and estate lawyer, the exact nature and applicability of these duties will be an important issue, often best elucidated through the testimony of an expert witness.
