Former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist
ORLANDO, Florida (WKMG) -- Former Gov. Charlie Crist is joining Florida trial lawyer firm Morgan & Morgan.
The marriage of "the people's governor" with the law firm that claims in TV commercials to be "for the people" was anticipated. The firm is run by John Morgan, a longtime Crist political supporter.
Crist has a law degree from the Cumberland School Of Law in Alabama and worked as general counsel to Minor League Baseball before entering politics.
After losing his bid for U.S. Senate, Crist had said he was in serious talks with the law firm, and admitted he liked their slogan: "For the People."
The announcement was made Friday morning at a law firm breakfast in Orlando.
