The types of errors that most often result in claims or grievances against Wisconsin lawyers are easy to commit but also relatively simple to avert, with good practice management and attention to detail.
How to resolve a potential error might not be obvious, but one thing is always 100 percent clear: covering up the mistake is wrong.
Engagement letters are vital to good representation because clients who are well informed from the start are more likely to be satisfied at the end.
Looking back to what went wrong for some Wisconsin lawyers in 2016 might help you avoid making those same errors or similar ones in 2017.
Reporting to your malpractice insurer all malpractice claims and all issues that might become claims is one of the best ways to ensure continuation of your coverage and minimize negative results of the claims.
