Malpractice and Professional Negligence

Common areas of malpractice include medical malpractice, legal malpractice and negligence by a professional. Typically, these cases arise from a professional relationship and, through the negligent act or omission of the professional, an injury is caused to the client, customer or patient. The most popular form of malpractice claims are medical malpractice which can include: failure to diagnose or misdiagnose an issue, unnecessary surgery, error during surgery, improper medication and/or treatment and the failure to diagnose symptoms. If you have hired an attorney, accountant, medical practitioner or any other kind of professional whose actions have resulted in serious injury to you or your spouse. Contact Leeson & Leeson to determine your legal remedies.

 

Commercial Litigation/Contract Disputes

Contracts are legal instruments by which parties exchange promises, services or goods. Although these agreements are typically entered into with the expectations of a beneficial relationship, disputes arise nonetheless. Contracts are broken for a variety of reasons which sometime include intentional breaches due to the economic benefits one party may incur by breaching rather than honoring the contractual obligations. Other reasons include breach due to unexpected events/ conditions and the unwillingness of one contracting party to satisfy the contractual arrangements. These contractual arrangements are legally enforceable and therefore, more often than not, lead to litigation.

 

White Collar Crime

Leeson & Leeson is uniquely positioned to help you with your white collar needs. As one of the very few lawyers in the Lehigh Valley with experience as a Certified Public Accountant, Joseph F. Leeson, III can provide you with a broader range of financial knowledge, as well as legal proficiency, when analyzing complex financial litigation.

 

Employment Litigation

Labor and Employment law is governed by a complex network of federal, state, and local laws. As a result, each matter requires a separate analysis. Employment litigation is also unique because it can involve sensitive personal information and can occur during an ongoing employment relationship. Achieving good outcomes requires technical, legal, and interpersonal skill. Legal counsel is necessary to establish the optimal legal strategy when an investigation or lawsuit becomes inevitable.
