Holding Attorneys Accountable For Fraud And Forgery
In addition to cases in which an attorney has committed malpractice as a result of professional negligence, Ney Rhein, LLC has handled numerous cases involving intentional misconduct by attorneys. These cases include actions in which attorneys have forged documents and signatures, defrauded clients, stolen client funds, and lied to clients regarding the status of their case. These are among the most complex cases to handle and often involve claims for punitive damages. Making a misrepresentation to a client that an attorney knows is false is a clear breach of an attorney’s duty to a client. Failing to disclose or conceal information from a client shatters any bond of trust in the attorney-client relationship. Covering up acts of dishonesty may serve as an additional act of legal malpractice.
Acts of fraud and forgery often compound the initial attorney malpractice, and may cause substantial additional damages to the client.
