Georgia Legal Malpractice Law addresses both the fabric of Georgia legal malpractice law and the cases and issues confronting attorneys, including effective claim prevention and loss avoidance. Since the first edition of this book was released, the Georgia Supreme Court and the Court of Appeals of Georgia have heard a steady stream of important new cases refining and, in some cases, revising the duties, responsibilities, liabilities and obligations of Georgia attorneys. Hence, this book addresses those changes in the context of these three parts:

Part One: Legal Malpractice Law and Defenses

Part Two: Legal Malpractice Prevention

Part Three: Insurance and Loss Avoidance
