Because Lagow couldn't speak with anyone about the lawsuit, he said he was in constant contact with his attorneys, like Stevenson and Steve Berman.
"I bugged them at all hours of the day," Lagow said of Stevenson and an earlier attorney who worked on the case, "and I continued to drive both of them nuts."
He said he is leaving most of the $14.5 million, minus attorney fees and taxes, to his five children, ages seven to 26.
Unemployed for three years and, even at 50 and being hopefully a little bit wiser, Lagow said he is still actively looking for a job.
"There's some organization out there who is going to look at this and say, 'Here's a guy who wants to do things right. We want that person on our team or part of our organization. We want the credibility and we want to say we try to do things right.' I don't know what firm that is because I haven't been able to find it yet," he said.
