Here at Fonseca & Partners, we understand that you may, at some point in your life, require legal assistance, and that during this difficult time, you need to be able trust your lawyer and the professional and expert knowledge they offer. Whether you're going through a divorce, have suffered a personal injury or have legal issues with your employer, you should be able to trust that your solicitor has the expertise and legal knowhow to advise you appropriately in the relevant areas of law, and will perform to the professional standards expected of them.
Every solicitor has a duty of care to their client, but occasionally, a solicitor will fall short of the professional standards expected of them. If you've suffered additional costs or financial loss because your lawyer failed to perform their duties to a reasonable and expected standard, then we can help you sue your solicitor. If your lawyer has adversely or inadvertently impacted your case, either by undersettling on your compensation claim, missing court deadlines, or making an error in the creation of legal documents, then you are entitled to recover your expenses and any additional financial losses suffered as a result. There is currently a six year time limit for you to file a claim against a solicitor, but if you think you may have been a victim of professional negligence outside of this limit, you may still be entitled to make a claim and we will advise you in this situation.
No two professional negligence cases are ever the same, and our expert legal team are available to discuss your options with you if you believe you have been the victim of negligent solicitor advice. When you contact us about a possible claim, we will lead an initial enquiry into your case, and open up proceedings if we determine that your professional negligence case is valid. We can advise you on what you need to do to settle your complaint either with the solicitors' themselves or, if this does not resolve your case, how to refer your case onto the Legal Ombudsman.
At Fonseca & Partners, we are dedicated to providing a full range of legal services and a high level of client care and transparency. No matter what your circumstances are, we will provide you with the best legal advice and ensure that your claim is dealt with efficiently, and with as little stress as possible.
