How to Avoid and Correct Attorney or Expert Mistakes

Learn how to address and correct a professional mistake.

This topic seeks to provide guidance for attorneys who are forced to address the difficult situation when they have made a professional mistake. An examination of the ethical rules regarding an attorney's mistakes will provide guidance and parameters. A discussion on avoiding mistakes in your practice will also be had. Further, while working with an expert can be challenging, we will review how to avoid mistakes with them when utilizing them and how to address their mistakes when they arise.
