The Plaintiff’s Heavy Burden of Proof in a Legal Malpractice Action under New York Law — Good Quote

From Sabalza v.Salgado, 2011 NY Slip Op 4732, 2011 N.Y. App. Div. LEXIS 4657 (1st Dep’t June 7, 2011):

A plaintiff's burden of proof in a legal malpractice action is a heavy one (Lindenman v Kreitzer, 7 AD3d 30 [2004]). The plaintiff must first prove the hypothetical outcome of the underlying litigation and, then, the attorney's liability for malpractice in connection with that litigation (id. at 34; Nazario v Fortunato & Fortunato, PLLC, 32 AD3d 692 [2006]).
