What Is The Statute Of Limitations For Legal Malpractice?

Florida statutes provide that a legal malpractice suit must be filed within two years when the client knew or should have known that legal malpractice has been committed. However, the cases that have discussed the statute of limitations in a legal malpractice setting do not provide absolute answers as to when the two years begin or end and the calculation may depend on whether the malpractice is a result of a transaction or a lawsuit. Therefore, a knowledgeable legal malpractice attorney should be consulted as early as possible.
