Professional Liability

ATTORNEY MALPRACTICE AND DISCIPLINE

Our legal malpractice attorneys have been representing Arizona lawyers for several decades in malpractice, disciplinary issues and any other matters implicating attorneys’ professional liability.  We provide our clients with the diligent and knowledgeable representation needed in these challenging areas of law.  

Our attorneys understand the importance of thoroughly researching and consulting with experts in our clients’ areas of practice to provide an early evaluation regarding the accusation of misconduct and whether harm resulted from the alleged misconduct.  We have the expertise to evaluate accusations of legal malpractice in all areas of law and the experience to confidently take cases through trial.  Oftentimes, our cases are resolved favorably through motion practice.   

For lawyers accused of violating the rules of ethics, our attorneys know the process at the Arizona State Bar and have significant experience in litigating cases before the Bar.
 
ACCOUNTANT MALPRACTICE AND DISCIPLINE

Our attorneys are prepared to assist accountants in virtually any area of practice, including matters related to tax preparation, tax planning, financial statements preparation and review, as well auditing. Many times, conflict can be avoided by early evaluation and corrective action. For accountants accused of malpractice or misconduct, our attorneys will provide knowledgeable advice and experienced representation before the State Board of Accountancy.

Responding to a subpoena can be a trap for the accountant.  There are specific legal requirements governing the release of confidential financial information. Our attorneys will provide guidance in balancing the requirements of the subpoena with the accountant’s obligation of confidentiality under state and federal law, to avoid any allegation of professional misconduct.
