Legal malpractice is negligence by a lawyer in handling any legal matter.  Negligence is the failure to use reasonable care under the circumstances.

It takes more than just negligence to make an actionable legal malpractice claim, though.  In order for there to be a valid legal malpractice case, the negligence has to have caused damage to the client or the intended beneficiary of the legal work.

Can we prove negligence? Can we prove causation? And can we prove sufficient damages so that the case is feasible to take to court?
