Description

The need for legal malpractice insurance isn't going away. Unlike some other professions, plaintiffs in legal malpractice actions need only a filing fee and the ability to get their complaint filed; the complaint does not necessarily need to have merit. Having an insurance policy in place to provide and pay for experienced defense counsel and, if need be, an indemnity payment, can provide the peace of mind no lawyer should be without. Legal Malpractice Insurance in One Hour for Lawyers will open your eyes to the many coverage options available to you under your legal malpractice policy of insurance. JoAnn L. Hathaway, a state bar association practice membership adviser, licensed insurance agent, and registered professional liability underwriter, will teach you how to:
  • Choose deductibles
  • Select the right coverage limit
  • Wisely choose your insurance carrier
  • Learn about the claims process
  • Protect your practice, and more
