Legal Malpractice

When lawyers make mistakes, they should be held accountable.

If your lawyer made a mistake in your case or transaction, you may lose your case, fail to close a deal, or learn it will cost you a lot of money. It is understandable that you may not want to speak with another attorney, but you should.

An experienced legal malpractice attorney can help you identify if the mistake constitutes malpractice and, if so, what to do about it (which may include suing the lawyer). In those situations, it is important to find a trusted attorney in Louisiana that will tell it like it is.

I was hurt on a rig when a mud pump exploded and my leg was almost cut off. My lawyer never inspected the pump and didn’t hire the right expert and my case was dismissed. Tommy sued the lawyer and we won. Tommy knows what it’s like to work to pay the bills.

I hired one of those TV lawyers for my car wreck. He never took my calls and he never told what was going on. Finally, I got a letter telling me that he had waited too long to file the lawsuit. He tried to blame me. I called Tommy and he got the results I deserved.
