Recent Illinois Case: Jahrling v. Estate of Cora

Posted on Updated on

This recent case upheld a finding by the bankruptcy court that, among other things, an attorney was negligent where he represented a client at a real estate closing who did not speak his language without an impartial interpreter.   The Court found that the attorney was precluded from disputing the existence of an attorney client relationship based on the doctrine of collateral estoppel.
