Keep Track of Due Dates to Avoid Missed Deadlines
The American Bar Association cites missed deadlines as a leading reason for legal malpractice claims. The most effective way to avoid calendaring errors involves four steps:
(1) recognizing trigger events,
(2) knowing the applicable rules or law,
(3) correctly applying the rules or law, and
(4) calculating the appropriate deadline.
Examples of such deadlines are found in the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, state rules, local rules, and judge’s requirements.
