    This is a very sad situation for the plaintiff. To trust somebody to give you a recommendation that seems rife with so much conflict is heartbreaking on so many levels. At the same time, even if the lawyer is recommended some due diligence should have been done to protect himself from this situation. If any of these allegations are true, the plaintiff deserves all the money plus the emotional damage of having been duped by his friend and the guy who is supposed to be looking out for him his lawyer. http://www.legalfunding.com/
