To a licensed Arizona attorney, there is nothing more important than his or her reputation. We know how difficult these cases can be for our attorney clients, who have worked hard to obtain licensure and to build their reputation in the legal community and beyond. At Sanders & Parks, we have worked hard for ours, too. We always strive to protect your interests and we are always cognizant of the responsibility and trust you place in us while work to protect your reputation and your practice. Sanders & Parks has a team of experienced attorneys who have successfully defended lawyers in a wide variety of claims arising out of the attorney-client relationship, including legal malpractice, breach of fiduciary duty, breach of contract and other related torts. We also represent attorneys in professional disciplinary proceedings, character and fitness inquiries, client fee disputes, conflict analysis and a full range of ethical issues that attorneys face in the day-to-day management of their practice.
Legal malpractice claims are often highly complex, requiring evaluation and litigation of not only the malpractice claim, but the underlying claim, as well. These claims require a keen understanding of the client’s actions and decisions in specialized areas such as real estate, business and commercial litigation, insurance coverage, personal injury, healthcare and professional negligence. Sanders & Parks attorneys have significant experience in these areas, thus allowing us to skillfully navigate the complexities of such matters. This is a unique advantage for our legal malpractice defense lawyers, as we can draw on the vast experience of our colleagues in addressing claims and fashioning the most persuasive arguments to defeat claims of professional negligence.
Sanders & Parks is panel counsel for many legal malpractice insurance companies and we regularly work with claims representatives to protect and advise lawyers and law firms in this particularly contentious area of litigation. Recognizing that law firm clients are sophisticated and knowledgeable, we strive to involve them in every step of the representation. We invite our attorney clients to participate in devising strategies, and give them opportunities to reduce legal fees and costs in areas where they are able to provide litigation support. Each case is different. And we approach each new matter with an eye toward customizing our defense in a way that will secure the best result for the client in the most cost-effective way.
