How Our Professional Negligence Solicitors Can Help You

Donoghue Solicitors are specialist solicitors who represent people who have suffered a loss as a result of the negligence of their professional adviser.

Please note that we only take claims against civil litigation solicitors. And, because this is such a specialised field, we only deal with solicitor negligence involving:

Unfortunately, we can’t help if, for example, you want to sue a solicitor in a different area of law, such as a conveyancing, commercial, or family matter.

Similarly, we won’t be able to assist if you want to sue a bank, architect, accountant etc. as they are not civil litigation solicitors.

For help with these, and other types of professional negligence claims, we suggest you try the Law Society’s Find a Solicitor service (click here to go to the Law Society’s website).

Examples of Cases Where We Might Be Able to Help

We can help you if your civil litigation solicitor:

  • settled your claim for less than it was worth;
  • missed important deadlines so you lost the right to claim; or
  • otherwise lost your case due to their professional negligence.
