 692 SE 2d 239 - Va: Supreme Court 2010
Our court said, in part, the following:

Virginia has adopted the strict privity doctrine in legal malpractice cases; as a threshold requirement, a plaintiff must demonstrate the existence of an attorney-client relationship. "It is settled in the Commonwealth that no cause of action exists in cases [involving a claim solely for economic losses] absent privity of contract." Copenhaver v. Rogers, 238 Va. 361, 366, 384 S.E.2d 593, 595 (1989).
