Breach Of Contract Issues

Contract issues in legal malpractice claims need to be handled by an experienced attorney. Ken Chase, of The Law Offices of Kenneth E. Chase, PC, in Scottsdale, understands the complex nature of these claims and is here to provide honest advice and quality representation.

Pursuing A Breach Of Contract Claim

Not every attorney is able to obtain optimal results in your case. You have a right to be upset, even angry, when your lawyer has made specific promises and fails to deliver results. We will carefully evaluate your specific complaints and determine if legal action is an appropriate option in your case.

You may be able to pursue a claim if your attorney failed to provide results promised to you in your contract. A breach of contract claim is a complex potential component of a legal malpractice case in Arizona. Such a claim can be made if your attorney's engagement letter or retainer agreement made a specific promise to achieve a certain specific result or take a specific action that is never completed or obtained.

Examples of a breach of contract in a legal malpractice claim include:

  • Stating in writing that he or she will prosecute a specific individual or entity
  • Stating in writing that he or she will obtain a specific monetary amount, or obtain a specific result
  • Stating in writing that he or she will take specific action or perform specific tasks

A breach of contract is when your lawyer specifically states that he or she will take specific action on a certain issue and then fails to follow through or not achieve results that were specifically promised in your contract.

We will provide strong legal guidance to help you explore your legal options and to protect your future. Your legal claim can result in significant financial losses if it is not handled properly from the start. We will review your original case and written agreement or contract with your lawyer to determine if a breach was made. If so, and you wish to pursue a claim, we will be happy to represent you and file a breach of contract and legal malpractice claims.
