Professional Liability

Professional liability coverage protects attorneys against charges of negligence or of wrongfully executed acts that cause monetary damages or undue injury to clients. Legal malpractice can apply to any field of law.

Why It’s Important

It is estimated that 5 percent to 6 percent of all private attorneys face legal malpractice charges each year. Defending against these charges is often more expensive than the cost of legal malpractice insurance.
