A man was involved in a car accident resulting in back pain that caused him to lose his job. The man had retained an attorney in Tampa to represent him and the highest offer received was $25,000.00. The attorney recommended to the client that he accept the offer and the client fired him. After getting involved with this case, Mr. Russo was able to obtain a settlement for $125,000.00. Despite this, the previous attorney claimed a lien against the recovery which was resolved for a reduced amount in litigation.
