Charging Lien Reversed in Part in Divorce Case

In an appeal related to a charging lien granted in favor of two attorneys based on their work in an underlying dissolution of marriage action, the Second District Court reversed in part today in Riveiro v. Mason, P.A..  The basis for reversal was the lack of any finding as to the reasonable hourly rate or number of hours expended by counsel and resulting in the $76,000.00 lien, as required by Florida Patient’s Compensation Fund v. Rowe, 472 So.2d 1145 (Fla. 1985) and its progeny.
