Real estate lawyers face rising malpractice claims

Real estate lawyers face rising malpractice claims - Ohio - property law - property lawer

Lawyers get sued for malpractice, too. And working in a sector where people have lost scads of money makes attorneys considerably more exposed to lawsuits that claim dereliction of duty.

Such is the explanation offered for a new survey that finds real estate lawyers are getting hit with malpractice claims at a rate greater than lawyers in any other practice area.

It was the first time real estate lawyers were in the No. 1 spot in the latest analysis of malpractice claims that the American Bar Association conducts every four years. Personal injury lawyers usually top the list.
