Florida Malpractice Defense Lawyers
Nothing is more agonizing to the professional than to be sued for negligence or malpractice. The professional's reputation is at stake, not to mention the potential economic impact of litigation. Liles, Gavin & George has represented lawyers, accountants, architects, engineers and other professionals in the defense of professional liability claims. These claims can result from a single isolated incident or they may be part of a much larger claim, such as a securities fraud action. The Firm's attorneys are sensitive to issues that implicate the professional's reputation, but at the same time are able to mount a vigorous defense to professional liability claims. It is our practice to prepare a case to prevail at summary judgment. However, if it is in the client’s best interest to avoid the cost, disruption of its business, and adverse publicity of lengthy court proceedings, we make every effort to resolve the case through early mediation and settlement.
The lawyers at Liles, Gavin & George have, over the years, developed special expertise handling legal malpractice claims. The Firm has represented many lawyers who have been sued, as well as attorneys trying to avoid a malpractice situation.
