Legal malpractice is ubiquitous and pops up in any field where people need attorneys. In an action for legal malpractice, a plaintiff must demonstrate that the attorney “failed to exercise the ordinary reasonable skill and knowledge commonly possessed by a member of the legal profession” and that the attorney’s breach of this duty proximately caused plaintiff to sustain actual and ascertainable damages. McCoy v. Feinman, 99 NY2d 295, 301-302 (2002).
