Court: Lancaster County District Court, Hon. Daniel E. Bryan

Attorneys: Appellant ' Randall L. Goyette and Colin A. Mues (Baylor, Evnen, Curtiss, Grimit & Witt, LLP); Appellee ' James R. Welsh and Christopher Welsh (Welch & Welch, P.C. L.L.O.)

Civil: Legal Malpractice claim

Proceedings Below: The court granted summary judgment to the defendant attorney and law firm.

Issues: 1. The district court erred in holding that because the Supreme Court held that the waiver language in the Plaintiff's Property Settlement Agreement was unambiguous, the Defendants had no duty to advise her of the legal effect of signing the Agreement. 2. The district court erred in entering summary judgment in favor of Defendants.
