Nixen (1981) 119 C.A.3d 417, 431; Levinv. Graham & James (1995) 37C.A.4th 798].

Typicallybreachof verbal (oral) contracts have a 2 year SOL and beach of writtencontracts have a 4year statute of limitations. See article CaliforniaStatute of Limitations. There may becertain instances where the traditional 2 of 4 year breach of contractSOLapply to attorney client causes of action rather than C.C.P. Section340.6.

Legal Malpractice- Statute of Limitations for ActualFraud: CCPSection 340.6 is a statute of limitations addressed specifically toattorneymisconduct “other than for actual fraud.” Thestatute of limitations for fraud is 3 years under CCPSection 338(d).
