In this unpublished opinion, the Fifth District of the Appellate Court affirmed the dismissal of a legal malpractice claim. The plaintiff had consented to the defendant lawyer’s withdrawal and waived her right to hire a new attorney. According to the appellate court, at that time, the plaintiff had a viable divorce claim and had not yet entered into the alleged unconscionable marital settlement agreement.
