Tagliasacchi v. Morrone, 2017 IL App (1st) 171178-U

Posted on Updated on

In this unpublished opinion, the First District affirmed the dismissal of a third-party malpractice claim. The court held that the attorney for an estate owes her duty to the estate in the event of a conflict among estate beneficiaries, which was the case here. Accordingly, the plaintiff could not show that the primary or direct purpose of the retention of the defendant attorney was to benefit her, and the attorney owed no duty to the plaintiff.
