Lack Of Knowledge Or Inexperience

Serving Clients Throughout Ohio

Volkema Thomas Miller & Scott, LPA, is one of Ohio's leading legal malpractice firms. We pursue cases against attorneys who have harmed clients by lacking the requisite experience to adequately handle cases or who commit any other form of legal negligence. With more than 100 combined years of experience, our lawyers have accumulated the knowledge and skills necessary to seek justice for those who have been wronged by other attorneys' inexperience or lack of understanding of a particular field of law. Based in Columbus, we handle legal malpractice claims throughout Ohio.

What Do These Situations Commonly Look Like?

Although an attorney's lack of experience can show itself in many ways, certain situations are more prevalent than others. Examples include:

  • A lawyer settling a case for far less than its fair value: We once represented a client who was harmed when his former attorney settled a claim for $800,000 even though the policy limit involved was $3 million and the other party was clearly liable for the damages.
  • Being pressured to settle a case — even though the merits of the claim are strong — can occur because the attorney does not have the knowledge or experience to take a case to trial.
  • Attorneys taking cases even though they have little to no understanding of the subject matter can lead to legal malpractice.

In these and all other types of attorney malpractice situations, our clients gain the peace of mind that comes from knowing that we not only have the requisite experience necessary to handle these claims, but also are seen as one of the state's premier firms in this area of law.
