If you retained an attorney who let the statute of limitations expire, you may now have a legal malpractice claim against that attorney.
You should look for an attorney in your area who handles legal malpractice claims and arrange an appointment with that attorney to further discuss the matter.
Mr. Lundeen is licensed to practice law in Florida and Vermont. The response herein is not legal advice and does not create an attorney/client relationship. The response is in the form of legal education and is intended to provide general information about the matter within the question. Oftentimes the question does not include significant and important facts and timelines that, if known, could significantly change the reply and make it unsuitable. Mr. Lundeen strongly advises the questioner to confer with an attorney in your state in order to insure proper advice is received.
Finding an attorney who is willing to sue another attorney is not easy. Particularly one who knows both medical malpractice and legal malpractice. Call Jim Ruppert in Franklin, just south of Dayton. I've known him for decades. He and his office are among the best anywhere. If for some reason he is not available, call the Dayton Bar Association and ask for a referral to a legal malpractice attorney near you. But do it quickly. You may only have a year to file a claim against your former attorney before your rights expire.
