Are you unhappy with your lawyer, the results achieved, the legal fees charged, or a lawyer’s unethical conduct?


IMG_20120514_092317I am attorney Howard Altschuler.  Since 1997, I have represented individuals and businesses who have legal malpractice claims, dispute excessive legal fees, seek sanctions or other relief for an attorney’s unethical or negligent conduct.

I have represented plaintiffs in a wide variety of legal malpractice, fee disputes, sanction motions, and ethics cases for more than 18 years.
