How to Prove Malpractice
In order to prove there has been a breach of the duty of care, you must show that the attorney actually caused financial harm and not just poor case preparation and strategy. The errors must be of the sort that competent lawyers would not make. Also, a finding of legal malpractice requires proof regarding what would have happened if the attorney had not breached the standard of care. This search for causation requires knowledgeable and skilled representation with experience in research and discovery as well as at trial. These cases are defended by some of the best lawyers that insurance companies can buy and each case requires expert testimony.

Likewise "winning" a case or contract negotiation may hide a malpractice issue of the types described above.
