An Experienced New Jersey Professional Liability Attorney Licensed professionals, such as lawyers, doctors and architects, are responsible for the caliber of their work. They can be held legally liable for negligence, errors, omissions, breach of duty, and even fraud, when they fail to live up to the Standard of Care, in serving their clients and patients. Only expert attorneys, however, can properly evaluate this, and determine when it is worthwhile to pursue them.

William Michelson Expert Witness Services

Mr. Michelson's services as an expert witness or consultant are in considerable demand in the New Jersey justice system. He has written over 200 Affidavits of Merit and 100 Expert Reports - steps required by the New Jersey Rules of Court in professional malpractice cases - and only does so when he believes that it is right, where a lawyer has most likely committed malpractice or some other wrongful act. This is because most legal malpractice cases require expert testimony, and the party's attorney cannot do this himself. He has also served as an expert witness in ethics cases, and even in other states. He also serves as an expert for the defense of lawyers, in cases that are not meritorious. He only seeks to do right.
