We need more information before we can try to help you. What, specifically was done that you believe may constitute malpractice?

I may be contacted at 212-553-9300.


The statute of limitations for legal malpractice under California Code of Civil Procedure section 340.6 is one year from the date you knew or should have known of the attorney's negligent conduct, but in no event more than four years from that date. Section 340.6 enumerates four exceptions or "tolling" provisions to the general rule.
