Can I obtain reimbursement if my lawyer’s acts were malpractice?

No, The Fund does not act as a malpractice insurer.  The Fund can only reimburse you for a theft of your money or property while in an attorney-client relationship. Some attorneys carry malpractice insurance that may be available to cover your loss.  Ineligible claims will be dismissed and the claimant will be notified of the reason.
