Professional Liability

Nothing is more agonizing to a professional than to be sued for negligence or malpractice. A professional’s reputation is at stake, not to mention the potential economic impact of litigation. Our firm 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 or construction defect case. Our 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 any professional liability claim.

The lawyers at Liles Gavin have, over the years, developed a special expertise handling legal malpractice claims. Our firm has represented many lawyers who have been sued, as well as attorneys trying to avoid a malpractice situation. Regardless of whether the alleged malpractice arises from matters involving divorce, a real estate or business transaction, business advice, estates and trusts, securities, or the use of trust funds, the attorneys at Liles Gavin are prepared to zealously represent a professional in this sensitive area.

Our firm also handles administrative matters related to professional liability. Examples of such representation include representing lawyers in grievance and other matters before The Florida Bar, representing Judges before the Judicial Qualifications Commission, and representing other professionals before various administrative agencies or professional organizations.
