Jaos v Vold

Recent Illinois Case: Jaos v. Vold

Posted on

In this unpublished opinion, the First District reversed the Circuit Court’s dismissal of a malpractice complaint pursuant to 735 ILCS 5/2-619.

The court held that there was an issue of fact as to whether the defendant lawyer adequately advised the plaintiff about the effect of liens on a business the plaintiff was purchasing.  The court rejected the defendant’s argument that the issue was so clear that no expert testimony on the issue was required.
