Did a Lawyer's Conflict of Interest Result in a Poor Outcome for Your Side?

Your lawyer owed it to you to screen your legal matter for possible conflicts of interest. This is a fundamental duty of an ethical law practice. Your lawyer was trained from the beginning of his or her legal education to avoid conflicts of interest such as:

  • Simultaneously representing parties on opposing sides
  • Agreeing to act as a scribe for two parties composing an agreement, such as a prenuptial agreement, when each should ethically have had separate representation
  • Representing you when doing so "would be materially and adversely affected by the lawyer's own interests or by the lawyer's duties to another current client, a former client, or a third person" (Restatement of the Law Governing Lawyers)
  • Accepting your case when even an appearance of impropriety in that representation exists
  • Agreeing to represent you despite deficiencies in the appropriate area of the law
  • Engaging in any improper relationship(s) — including intimate relationships, close social interactions and business dealings — with parties on either side of a case (clients, attorneys or expert witnesses likely to testify)

Through several decades of litigation and legal insurance experience, I, Carter L. Hampton, have amassed a great deal of knowledge in the area of conflicts of interest and legal malpractice. Law firms throughout North America regularly seek my involvement as an expert witness in such cases. I am available and qualified to evaluate conflict of interest lawsuits throughout Texas, the U.S. and Canada. I have achieved large verdicts when trying such cases and am available to represent clients in complex conflict of interest claims and lawsuits.
