Avoiding Malpractice in Today’s Changing World

The pandemic has changed and continues to change how we live our lives. Although we have figured out how to navigate many of the challenges resulting from the last three years, it significantly impacted the legal community and the practice of law. Many attorneys still struggle with maintaining a healthy work-life balance, lack of personal and professional support, and adjusting to full or hybrid remote work environments.

PLF Claims Attorney Holli Houston and PLF Practice Management Attorney Rachel Edwards examine PLF claims data since 2019 and the the most frequent factors in malpractice claims such as missed deadlines, mistakes in submission of forms, settlement issues, and failure to communicate with clients. Based on the historical data and the PLF’s unique insight into the causes of and remedies for legal malpractice, Holli and Rachel will offer practical tips on how to avoid common malpractice traps. They will also address proper case and client assessment, knowing your workload limits, enhancements in legal research tools and networking, upgrading your office systems and procedures, and effective client communications.
