Outcome of solicitor's negligence case dependent on facts

While most who hire a solicitor to help them with a legal issue likely assume the solicitor will do everything possible to lookout for their best interest, the reality is this does not always happen. Instead, all too often the standard of care put toward a legal matter falls below the accepted standard.
