Legal Question

Asked on: 11/14/12, 9:19 am

My father-inlaw died on 1/9/09. His wife signed a retainer on 2/22/09 with a law firm to pursue a nursing home malpractice case related to her husband's death.

No work was done on the case. She died on 8/19/11.

Does her estate have a legal malpractice claim? Does the statute of limitations begin on 2/22/09 when she signed the retainer, or 1/9/12 when the statute of limtiations for the nursing home claim expired?
