Legal Malpractice Defense


At Hart Wagner, our legal malpractice defense group possesses comprehensive experience combined with an outstanding track record of successfully defending international, national and regional law firms at both the appellate and trial levels.

Malpractice suits against attorneys have become increasingly common.  The potential for negative press coverage, significant monetary consequences, and damaged reputation makes these types of claims extremely significant to law firms.  Our experienced team of seasoned legal malpractice attorneys handles a wide variety of claims, including:

  • Legal malpractice
  • Third party claims
  • Malicious prosecution action
  • Disqualification motions
  • Libel or slander claims
  • Conflict of interest
  • Failure to obtain client consent

No matter the claim, Hart Wagner stands at the forefront of defending our clients against any allegation.  Our legal malpractice group not only defends law firms in complicated, high-profile and high-stakes cases, but also frequently represents firms in connection with potential claims and strives towards the resolution of these types of claims prior to the filing of a complaint.  By concentrating on both the early resolution of potential claims and law firm defense, the services and expertise provided by our group are unmatched in the Pacific Northwest.
