The statute of limitations can be tolled, as a result of the doctrine of continuous representation, if a plaintiff in a legal-malpractice case establishes: 1.) the defendant continued to represent the plaintiff in the same underlying case; and 2.) either the plaintiff did not know about the alleged malpractice or, alternatively, the defendant possessed the opportunity to mitigate harm allegedly caused by the malpractice, during the continued period of legal representation.
