Criminal law has historically been viewed as a low-claim frequency and severity area of practice – and rightly so.  Our claims statistics have borne that out.  Over the past 12 to 18 months, though, we have started to see the potential for increased exposure to these practitioners – specifically, claims against criminal defense attorneys whose clients have been convicted, but have subsequently been granted post-conviction relief (PCR).
