Florida personal injury attorney who owes clients $396,000 is essentially disbarred | National


MIAMI — A Tallahassee personal injury attorney who was already on emergency suspension for failing to turn over records from his trust account while the Florida Bar investigated client grievances has decided, officially, to drop out.

Gus Soto, of the Soto Injury Law Firm, 65 and admitted to the bar in 1984, gave up his career seeking disciplinary dismissal without permission to seek readmission. Soto’s request, which was granted by the state Supreme Court, also says he will waive $396,931 in restitution to five clients who allege Soto misappropriated their settlement funds.
