Solicitors Negligence

Solicitors offer a wide range of products and services from drafting your will, acting on your behalf in a divorce, purchasing residential or commercial property or commencing litigation.

It’s only right that you expect your solicitor to provide you with a professional service. You could have a professional negligence claim if the service received was below a reasonable standard of skill and care and as a result you have suffered a financial loss.

If you think you have a claim against your solicitor, please contact us at Verisona Law and we’d be happy to assist.

There are many circumstances where it may be appropriate to pursue a claim against your solicitor. Some examples include:
