Medical - Lawyer Referral Service Draws Attention

A Tampa, Florida law firm appears to criticize the 1-800-ASK-GARY referral hotline service that the firm itself uses, according to a Tampa Bay Online article titled Law Firm's Ad Derides Services it Uses. Here are some excerpts from the article:

"1-800-ASK-GARY is a referral hot line affiliated with Physicians Group LLC, a chain of accident clinics operated by Sarasota chiropractor Gary Kompothecras. Physicians Group operates at least 46 clinics in Florida, and with an affiliate has expanded to Minnesota and Kentucky. Both states have auto insurance systems similar to Florida's.

The hot line refers callers to 42 law firms, some or all of which refer their legal clients to Physicians Group's clinics for treatment.

Aside from Beltz & Ruth, the referral network also includes big advertisers Morgan & Morgan, Winters & Yonker, and Catania & Catania, according to a list the Ask Gary hot line provided the Florida Bar."
