Sucese v. Kirsch – Case Brief Summary (New York)

In Sucese v. Kirsch, 177 AD2d 890, 576 N.Y.S.2d 651 (3d Dept. 1991), law firm number one represented a client in the purchase of real property and failed to properly record a deed which resulted in various liens, tax warrants and judgments against the property.

The client subsequently retained law firm number two to commence a legal malpractice claim against law firm number one.

The Court in that case found that the second law firm was retained solely to commence a legal malpractice claim and did not owe plaintiff a duty to commence a proceeding to quiet title.
