50 State Survey of Legal Malpractice Law

The Survey is a collection of state-by-state articles on legal malpractice and related torts. Each article addresses the elements, defenses and key issues common to claims against lawyers. All articles are in PDF format and are available only to members of the ABA Section of Litigation.




 

Note: This online survey should be used as only a starting point and not a substitute for original research. The articles are intended to be general summaries, but not exhaustive treatments, of the laws governing legal malpractice claims in each state. By necessity the articles are incomplete, and there may be exceptions or contrary authority to the general points discussed. The articles are not legal opinions or legal advice. You should consult with an attorney about specific concerns in this area.The views expressed in the survey are those of the contributing authors and not necessarily those of their employers or the American Bar Association.
