Attorney Malpractice Defense
Eccleston & Wolf is the established, preeminent, attorney malpractice defense firm with regard to lawyer’s professional claims, including attorney grievance matters and Bar Complaints. The firm has represented hundreds of law firms in the Mid-Atlantic Region in both jury and non-jury cases, covering virtually every area of legal malpractice, breach of fiduciary duty, fraud, RICO, securities and anti-trust violations.
Additionally, the firm represents lawyers before the attorney grievance boards and commissions. Eccleston & Wolf accepts cases both via private retention and through disciplinary coverage provided by many legal malpractice insurers. (See Defense of Attorney Grievance & Bar Complaints.) Eccleston & Wolf’s members also regularly lecture and provide seminars to insurance companies and their insureds, as well as local bar associations, on avoiding and defending legal malpractice claims. In addition to defending lawsuits filed against attorneys, Eccleston & Wolf is routinely retained to defend and advise clients on a risk management and claims avoidance basis, as well as on ethical and disciplinary matters.
