The statute of limitations for malpractice in Oregon is two years. It's not clear from the question whether this representation occurred in Utah (where the accident occurred) or Washington (which you mention in your heading, though it was cut off), or Oregon. Beyond that, I'm afraid it's difficult to understand what you've written. (Please see this Guide: www.avvo.com/legal-guides/ugc/five-tips-for-how-to-ask-for-legal-advice-on-avvocom ) In any case, you'd have to take legal action in the state where the lawyer was practicing. Different states have different laws and statutes of limitations.
