Negligence: Legal Malpractice-Statute Of Limitations

Where plaintiff challenged the grant of a motion to dismiss filed by defendant attorneys, the petition was filed within the five-year statute of limitations, and the trial court erred in granting the dismissal on the grounds that the plaintiff’s petition was barred by the statute of limitations for legal malpractice claims.

Judgment is reversed and remanded.
