Claims Against Dishonest or Unethical Attorneys in Pennsylvania
If you believe that you have been victimized by the dishonest or unethical conduct of your attorney in a previous legal engagement, contact an experienced lawyer at ARM Lawyers for a free consultation about your rights and options. We can let you know what to do about a wide range of ethical violations from professional negligence to outright theft.
Not every ethical violation represents professional malpractice, and not every instance of malpractice will support a right of financial compensation against the offending lawyer. Sometimes your dispute will turn out to be little more than an argument over fees. In any event, our attorneys will listen to your story, review the history of your case, and advise you appropriately under the facts and the law that applies to your situation. For example, in some situations, your best option will be to file a complaint against the attorney before the Disciplinary Board. In others, you will have the right to sue the lawyer for damages.
Protecting Clients from a Variety of Unethical Practices
Regardless of the origin of your claim against a legal professional, ARM Lawyers can give you a good understanding of your rights and the surest way to recover what you lost through professional dishonesty or misconduct. Examples of the kinds of ethical violations we handle include:
- Undisclosed conflict of interest
- Theft, misuse, or unauthorized “borrowing” of client funds
- Ethical violations related to attorney’s fees
- Ethical violations related to confidentiality
- Financial or other abuse of vulnerable or incapacitated clients
- Sexual relationships between attorneys and clients
- Violation of duties owed to past clients
- Improper termination of attorney-client relationship, including abandonment
- Dishonesty in a fiduciary capacity, such as trustee, executor, or guardian
The attorneys of ARM Lawyers are experienced and skilled in the investigation of Pennsylvania legal ethics violations, and we know how to present your claims of professional misconduct to maximum impact in court whenever we see an opportunity to help you recover your losses.

Proving a former client’s right to financial recovery against a lawyer for negligence or ethical violations can be difficult, but our experience across a broad range of legal disciplines represents a powerful strength in developing and presenting an effective case.
