If your attorney has no legal basis to hold the money, then you should contact The Florida Bar in Tallahassee and ask for the forms to file a bar grievance against the attorney. This will probably resolve the problem if you are truly entitled to all of the funds. Otherwise, you may have to file suit against the attorney. However, I do agree with the prior answers in that if you have not already tried to talk to the attorney you should try this first. If you cannot get a response, I would file a Bar Grievance against the attorney.
