Professional Defense and Malpractice

Professional defense of architects, engineers, CPAs and attorneys

Mockbee Ellis, P.A. lawyers have extensive experience in handling professional negligence and malpractice claims.  This includes defending professionals in these fields including architects, engineers, CPAs and attorneys.  We attribute our success in professional liability defense to our attorneys’ abilities to properly analyze the claims and our familiarity with the fields of construction, corporate law, insurance products, and with the transactions and procedures involved.  Our attorneys analyze the claims to determine if a wrong action or omission was actually committed on the part of the professional, and if so, advise what is necessary to minimize damages.

We realize that professionals have much at stake in the face of negligence or failure to perform fiduciary duties claims, such as:

  • Loss of professional license
  • Loss of reputation
  • Loss of insurance
  • Difficulty becoming reinsured
  • Financial and other sanctions
  • Loss of personal assets

Our attorneys are experienced in approaching these issues and do everything to resolve the claims without going to trial.  If, however, a trial cannot be avoided, the attorneys of Mockbee Ellis, P.A. advise, prepare and defend you through every stage of litigation
