Legal Malpractice

The firm defends attorneys and law firms that have been sued for legal malpractice, both in litigation and before the Florida Bar in grievance proceedings. Unfortunately, for the members of the Florida Bar and their insurers, legal malpractice cases appear to be on the rise.

Peterson Bernard has experienced attorneys who handle this type of defense. Our attorneys have experience not only in litigation matters, but also in legal work involving family law, real estate, trust and probate and business matters. We are not only well prepared to represent the client and insurers in the litigation process, but also to understand the facts and circumstances upon which the claim arose.
