Lawyers owe their clients a fiduciary duty.
A fiduciary duty is the highest, most exacting duty recognized by law. It requires the utmost good faith, and loyalty.
A fiduciary duty requires that a lawyer not only act in his or her client’s best interest, but that the lawyer fully disclose all information to the client so that the client can make an informed decision.
Many legal malpractice claims also involve claims for breach of fiduciary duty.
If your lawyer did not act in your “best interest” you may have a breach of fiduciary duty claim.
