Legal Malpractice

A legal malpractice claim can be a very difficult experience for an attorney, both personally and professionally. At Boyce Law Firm, our attorneys know how to handle complex legal malpractice claims and we actively and vigorously defend the claims to preserve the personal and professional reputations of our clients.

Legal malpractice claims can be varied in the type of practice and law involved in the underlying claim. Each case involves analysis of both the alleged malpractice of the attorney along with the “case-within-the-case.” Our attorneys have defended negligence and breach of fiduciary duty claims arising out of various types of civil litigation, commercial and other transactions, trusts and estates and bankruptcy, to name a few.

We have attorneys with extensive experience in representing lawyers in legal malpractice claims in the state and federal courts and before the South Dakota State Bar Association’s Disciplinary Board along with South Dakota’s Ethics Committee.
