When selecting a lawyer, especially one to sue another lawyer, things like credentials, background and experience are important. You’ll want the real deal.
Founded over three decades ago at a time when few lawyers would ever sue other lawyers, Stanford And Associates became the original legal malpractice firm, with a limited and exclusive practice of suing lawyers and law firms—big and small. Since that time our firm has prosecuted and tried more legal malpractice claims against lawyers throughout California than any other firm in the State, recovering tens of millions of dollars for our clients. Along the way not only have we provided a service to our clients, but we’ve worked hard to provide a service to the California legal community. We are also proud to have trained some junior lawyers who now attempt to sometimes work in this specialized field, alone with other things they do.
Our founder, Dan Stanford, is considered by most to be the pioneer in this field. And, by the time Stanford And Associates was formed, Dan had already established a reputation in the legal community as a thorough, experienced and aggressive trial lawyer and leader in the Bar Association. After graduating from the prestigious law school at the University of Southern California, Dan spent two years as the law clerk to respected Judge Malcolm M Lucas, focusing on substantial civil litigation and national class action lawsuits. Thereafter, Dan was trained as a defense lawyer at large, prestigious law firms, first Luce, Forward, Hamilton & Scripps, then Pillsbury, Madison & Sutro. Litigating and trying cases as a partner in these recognized law firms taught Dan the importance of team work and meeting clients’ expectations. Having been trained as a defense lawyer and having tried dozens of jury trials separates Dan from others who sometimes work in this field.
Stanford And Associates has successfully handled cases throughout California, and we would be happy to provide a free case evaluation. Unlike some others who attempt to practice in this area, at Stanford And Associates, we:
- Never charge a consultation fee
- Never bill our clients by the hour
- Never represent or defend lawyers
- Never handle fee disputes between lawyers
So, if you think you might have claims against lawyers, don’t be fooled by internet advertising: Choose the true original.
