This book addresses both the fabric of California legal malpractice law and the cases and issues confronting attorneys.
New from The Recorder!
California Legal Malpractice Law is available as a paperback and in EPUB format, with hyperlinks to the full text of cases, statutes and other authoritative content.

In this new era of technology, patent disputes, mega law firm mergers, and business globalization, the threat of legal malpractice has become a part of the modern day law practice. 
California Legal Malpractice Law offers practical guidance, including effective claim prevention and loss avoidance. 
Two Cases in One
Defending a malpractice case requires not only an understanding of legal malpractice law, but the substantive law of the underlying the lawsuit or transaction.  Lately there has been a rise in claims from intellectual property, real estate, personal injury, bankruptcy, and securities matters.  And in California, claims from entertainment law are growing. Randy Evans, Shari Klevens, and Suzanne Y. Badawi offer practical solutions in avoiding and handling legal malpractice claims.
