Attorneys' Malpractice


An attorney is not an insurer of the result of a case in which he is employed, without a special contract to that effect, nor can more than ordinary skill, care and diligence be required of him without such contract; and where an attorney has acted in good faith and with a fair degree of intelligence in the discharge of his duties under the usual implied contract, any error which he may make must be so gross as to render wholly improbable any disagreement among good lawyers as to the manner of the performance of the services in the given case before the attorney can be held responsible.
