This compendium of legal malpractice law was prepared by members of the Primerus Defense Institute. Lawyers from throughout the country volunteered their time and expertise to prepare an overview of the law in all 50 states. Like any similar publication, it should not be used to provide a definitive answer to one particular set of circumstances. Rather, the intent was to prepare a basic overview of the law in each state, with the hope that the reader will find it useful and informative.
