Law’s Cassandra Robertson and Jonathan Entin weigh in on real estate malpractice

Real estate lawyers face rising malpractice claims

The Plain Dealer: A new study found that real estate lawyers are hit with malpractice claims at a rate greater than lawyers in any other area of practice. “With the mortgage meltdown, you have more opportunity for clients to be suffering harm,” said Cassandra Robertson, associate professor of law. Professor Jonathan Entin agreed: “With more bad deals, underwater mortgages, foreclosures and similar problems, people are more likely to suspect that their lawyers may have failed to advise and represent them adequately.”
