Legal & Accounting Malpractice Defense


P.K. Schrieffer LLP has defended hundreds of legal malpractice cases involving such diverse issues as probate and family law to complex underlying patent infringement claims. The firm has also defended several accountants in high-exposure cases.

Our understanding of the law and of the “case within a case” doctrine instills confidence in the attorney/client and gives the firm an edge over the plaintiffs’ bar. This expertise frequently leads to resolution by summary judgment, outright dismissals or favorable resolutions via settlement.

The firm involves the attorney/client in all aspects of the litigation and frequently saves costs by utilizing the client’s expertise in the underlying subject matter prior to retaining experts for consultation or trial.
