Notes on Divorce Malpractice

There is such thing as Divorce Malpractice

The need for a 'Standard of Care' Expert Witness .. contact Douglas Kneller 

In my legal practice, I have represented well over 1,000 individuals who have hired me to manage their divorce and family law matters. There is no question that divorce has become an increasingly specialized and complex legal arena in which legitimate malpractice occurs. Based on my knowledge and experience, I have served as an 'expert witness' or 'Standard of Care Witness' in significant malpractice actions involving negligent divorce attorneys in Florida. Unfortunately, these circumstances are not uncommon.

Legitimate Divorce Malpractice

You may have a legitimate cause of action if you were legitimately misrepresented in your divorce by an attorney who lacks experience, education, knowledge or certification in divorce or family law.

In the divorce malpractice lawsuits that go to trial, the courts listen to the expert opinion of a "standard of care witness" (such as myself). Other economic or medical professionals are also asked to evaluate and confirm negligence, proving that you have been unfairly or economically harmed by your divorce attorney's lack of experience or education. These matters can include the following disputes: 

  • You were awarded insufficient alimony due to your divorce attorney's miscalculations, misinformation or negligence due to lack of experience or education in marital and family law
  • You have been adversely affacted by improper child support calculations
  • You have been adversely affected by unfair or improper time-share schedules
  • You were not re-embursed or compensated for 'family gifts or loans' transacted during your marriage 
  • You have been adversely affected by improper pension calculations.
  • You have been hit with unexpected tax consequences due to hidden funds or miscalculation of income or improper business valuations or pensions.

What I've Learned

—Douglas Kneller

The more you know, the less you know.

To forgive yourself is to forgive somebody else.

It will be what it is and it is what it is; nothing more, nothing less.

All children turn 18.

You cannot predict the future, so do not try.

Your problems are not as big as you think they are.

Everything will work out. It always does.

Often your case or future is predetermined or "in the stars" (but you must still work as hard and as diligently as you can.)

Material items will not bring you happiness.

There is somebody out there you can find to grow old with that will appreciate you.

If you look for it, you will not find it VERSUS if you do not look for it but follow your passions, then what you seek will find you.
