Dorfman v. Foreman Friedman, PA, 2017 IL App (1st)

Posted on Updated on

In an unpublished opinion, the First District affirmed the dismissal of a malpractice claim on statute of limitations grounds.   The court’s holding was primarily based upon the principle that a legal malpractice claim related to litigation accrues when an adverse judgment is rendered.  The court further held that actual knowledge of legal malpractice is not required to trigger the limitations period and a professional opinion that legal malpractice has occurred is not required before a plaintiff is charged with knowing facts that would cause him to believe his injury was wrongfully caused.
