Civil Litigation > Legal Malpractice
There is perhaps no greater honor for an attorney than to be asked by a fellow lawyer to act as his or her counsel. Since its inception, our firm has represented attorneys in Augusta and throughout the remainder of Georgia.
Our attorneys have been hired on numerous occasions to be the personal counsel for lawyers in controversies throughout the state of Georgia, where the lawyer – client faces professional negligence / malpractice claims brought against them. Many times, our law firm is hired by the besieged lawyer to assist the attorney retained by the malpractice insurance carrier.
Our law firm also has been selected by Georgia Lawyers Insurance Company to represent its insureds in the Augusta area. An example of a legal malpractice claim defended by the firm is Kellos v. Sawilowsky, 172 Ga. App. 263 (1984), aff'd. 254 Ga. 4 (1985), one of the most cited legal malpractice cases in Georgia.
