Plaintiff’s Attorneys No Longer the Most likely defendant

Real estate is #1 in lawyer liability claims.

For the first time since such surveys were conducted of legal malpractice claims (beginning in 1985), plaintiff’s  attorneys were not the highest generator of lawyer liability claims.  The ABA reported that the most recent survey showed that real estate matters generated the most lawyer liability claims.  The top three:  (1)  real estate matters; (2) personal injury plaintiff’s claims; and (3) divorce actions.

The most likely types of activity to give rise to a claim:  (1) “preparation, filing, and transmittal of documents,” and (2) “advice.”

These results continued a trend reflected in the last survey.
