What is the statute of limitations for legal malpractice cases?
Thank you for your question and thank you again for requesting me to assist you further.

Statutes do differ from state to state. Just to be clear I am researching the right jurisdiction, all this took place in Virgnia, correct?

Yes, thank you for clarifying.


Thank you for your follow-up. Under VA law, specifically Va. Code § 8.01-246(2) or (4), there is a 3-5 year statute of limitations depending on the agreement signed. You still have time to pursue it if you choose to do so.
