Lewis Brisbois' Legal Malpractice Defense Department has published the 8th edition of its California Legal Malpractice & Malicious Prosecution Liability handbook. This helpful and detailed guide, written by Los Angeles Partners Kenneth C. Feldman and David D. Samani, is only available by special order and is broken down into three primary sections.
The first section looks at actions against attorneys brought by former clients. The second section discusses theories of liability in actions filed by non-clients. The final section, titled "Attorneys and the Practice of Law," reviews several topics of import pertaining to attorneys practicing law in the Golden State. Hundreds of cases and statutes are discussed in the handbook's 237 pages.
