Legal Malpractice Lawyers in New Jersey

Malpractice Attorneys Since 1950

Gelman Gelman Wiskow & McCarthy LLC was established in 1950 by a Harvard lawyer who returned to his hometown to provide his neighbors with the very best legal services. Our seasoned New Jersey injury lawyers and committed team uphold the legacy of providing our clients with the finest degree of individualized service and results-driven legal representation. We have a strong sense of loyalty to the people we represent since all of our attorneys and a large portion of our staff are natives of the region.

The Importance of Retaining Our Law Firm

When you select a law firm to retain, you anticipate a lawyer or legal firm you employ to conduct themselves professionally, uphold your rights, and represent your interests. A malpractice claim cannot be made because of a poor legal approach.

Legal malpractice is a type of carelessness that can place when attorneys and their legal firms behave carelessly, harming the client. A client may potentially file a legal malpractice action against an attorney for violation of fiduciary responsibility. These cases are normally brought by the client, while it is occasionally feasible for non-clients to do so if an attorney has done something wrong.

Helping Injured Clients Recover

Legal malpractice, in its simplest form, is when a lawyer fails to offer services that are up to the level of care expected of a qualified attorney, whether due to a mistake or an omission. Any form of case, including transactions, personal injury, employment law, and contract disputes, might include legal misconduct. Gelman Gelman Wiskow & McCarthy LLC is a full-service New Jersey injury law firm. It is not paradoxical or ironic that attorneys are bringing legal malpractice claims against other attorneys. Lawyers must adhere to a code of ethics and are held to acceptable standards, much like other professionals, such as physicians and architects.

When attorneys take on a matter, clients have the right to assume that their rights will be upheld. For people who have been affected by legal negligence, our attorneys are devoted to obtaining justice.

Our track record speaks for itself:

Catastrophic Injuries

Our law firm has the substantial resources and knowledge to successfully litigate the most challenging catastrophic injury cases.

Auto Accidents

We demand that insurance companies pay maximum auto accident damages expeditiously and justly.

Medical Malpractice

Our medical malpractice attorneys hold medical professionals accountable for their mistakes.

Personal Injury

In 2019, we settled or won, at trial/mediation/arbitration, 111 personal injury cases. Our clients recovered just under ten million dollars. In the last eleven years, we have settled/won over one thousand cases, and our clients have recovered over 100 million dollars.

Trusting a New Lawyer

Proving that a different result would have occurred if the matter had been handled properly is the most challenging aspect of a legal malpractice lawsuit. The phrase “case within a case” is used to describe this. Calculating damages would probably include estimating what they would have been had the prior attorney not engaged in misconduct. We put a lot of effort into making things right and holding members of our profession responsible when they fail to uphold their obligations to customers.

We are aware that when your first attorney caused you harm, it can be hard to trust another one. The relationship between an attorney and a client is sacred, according to our legal experts. When a client entrusts him or her with a serious situation, the attorney should feel honored. When attorneys fail to deliver services that adhere to the required professional standards, we don’t hesitate to hold them accountable.
