The trial court erred in granting the defendant attorney summary judgment on statute of limitations grounds since there was a triable issue of fact as to when his representation of the plaintiff was terminated–either slightly more or slightly less than a year before the malpractice action was filed.  There was no formal withdrawal until less than a year before suit.  E-mails the attorney sent before then only threatened a future withdrawal if the plaintiff didn’t cooperate or pay fees.  Just a year and five days before the malpractice action was filed, defendant signed a stipulation in the litigation as plaintiff’s counsel, and nothing happened in the next five days to make it clear to plaintiff that defendant had withdrawn as her attorney.
