Claims for Wrong advice by a Solicitor

Duncan Lewis Professional Negligence Solicitors – Claims for Wrong Advice by a Solicitor


If a solicitor gave wrong advice, a client can be left feeling frustrated, let down and seriously out-of-pocket.


Disputes with professionals arising from professional negligence can be extremely distressing – and wrong advice by a solicitor can not only prejudice a case, but it can also wreck lives and businesses.


Wrong legal advice can affect any type of case – and therefore clients who have been let down by a negligent solicitor who gave wrong advice need to take an expert legal opinion from a firm of solicitors specialising in professional negligence claims, which also has access to in-house experts in the appropriate area of the law for the case.


Duncan Lewis is one of the UK’s leading firms of claims solicitors, with a successful track record professional negligence claims.


Duncan Lewis solicitors also advise on all areas of law, including but not limited to:

  • Child care law
  • Clinical Negligence claims
  • Commercial law
  • Criminal law
  • Divorce
  • Employment law
  • Family law
  • Human Rights and civil liberties
  • Immigration law
  • Litigation
  • Medical Negligence claims
  • Mental Health law
  • Personal Injury law
  • Property and housing law
  • Wills, trust & probate.


Duncan Lewis also advises on legal matters under UK law and Islamic law, including ensuring that legal processes and agreements or contracts under Sharia law are compatible with civil law in the UK.


Making Professional Negligence Claims


Clients who suffer financial loss or other loss as a result of a solicitor who is negligent should first make a complaint through the solicitor’s own complaints procedure.


The Legal Ombudsman can also adjudicate in cases where a solicitor is negligent and gave wrong advice but any compensation awarded may be modest.


Clients considering suing a solicitor for wrong advice have six years from the date of the event constituting negligence – or three years from the date they first realised negligence had occurred – in which to make a professional negligence claim.


Funding a Professional Negligence Claim for Wrong Advice by a Solicitor


Duncan Lewis understands that suing a solicitor can be a daunting prospect, especially after the trauma of a case collapsing after being given wrong advice by a solicitor.


Duncan Lewis professional negligence solicitors take a tough stance in making a claim against a negligent solicitor who has let a client down by giving wrong legal advice – and will press for maximum damages.


Duncan Lewis lawyers offer clients a Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA) to fund professional negligence claims.


Duncan Lewis also offers a fixed fee to cover the costs of the initial client meeting and case assessment – so our professional negligence clients know from the outset how much they will have to pay.
