Attorneys – Legal Malpractice – Trust Revocability – Advice To Client

In this decision from Fairfax Circuit Court, a claim of lawyer malpractice is dismissed as to a client’s intent to make a trust revocable or irrevocable, based on collateral estoppel, but the client may pursue a claim of negligence in advising on the tax consequences of the trust.
