Plaintiff was the first attorney defendant hired on a contingent fee basis in an underlying case. Plaintiff properly acquired an attorney’s lien on any recovery in the underlying case. Defendant fired plaintiff and hired Williams in his stead. Williams also acquired an attorney’s lien. After the underlying suit was favorably resolved, plaintiff sued to recover his fees from the recovery. Plaintiff’s entitlement to fees was solely a matter between plaintiff and his former client. Williams was properly dismissed from the suit, but then could not complain about any legal or factual errors in its resolution. However, since Williams was dismissed, the trial court erred in entering a judgmnet that determined the amount of Williams’ fees and the amount of recovery remaining to be paid to defendant. The judgment is reversed in those respects but affirmed as to fees owed plaintiff.
