Once the decision has been made to put a case on at trial, there are many important pre-trial preparations that must be made. The lawyer will take the months leading up to the trial to get all of the evidence organized and line up all of the witnesses. Another important part of the trial preparation period is getting the client up to speed on the process and what to expect during the trial.
Mistakes can be made both during the trial preparation period and while the case is being presented at trial. For example, if the lawyer is unable to call main expert witnesses to testify at trial because of her failure to timely disclose the expert, and the client’s case suffers as a result, the lawyer may have committed legal malpractice.
If your lawyer failed to put your best case forward at trial, she may have committed legal malpractice and you may have options available to you, we can help.
