My daughter had an extremely bad law guardian during my divorce, which ended four years ago. He didn't believe her which caused

Q: her much anguish and caused her younger sister to be abused as well. She's now 22 and just decided she wants to go to law school. Can she graduate in three years and sue her law guardian?

A:  David's Answer:  The statute of limitations on legal malpractice is 3 years. While it's tolled until she turns 18, it starts running at that point. Thus, if she's already 22, it's too late. She can always try filing a complaint with the local Bar Association, however (and/or file a complaint with the Attorneys for Children office at the Appellate Division, 2d Department). Call a White Plains Family Law attorney for more info. -- David Bliven, Westchester Family Law attorney (
