More than a year after leaving a high-profile firm, state Rep. Darryl Rouson announced today that he has joined Clearwater-based personal injury firm Dolman Law Group.
Rouson, a St. Petersburg Democrat, left his job at the Morgan & Morgan firm in May 2013. He had taken the opposite side of his boss John Morgan's very public support of a constitutional amendment legalizing medical marijuana. At the time, Rouson said he was leaving the firm to focus on his political career and both insisted the separation was amicable.
Rouson joined the Dolman firm two months ago, according to a press release, and the company is looking to open an office in St. Petersburg.
Rouson faces a write-in candidate and a candidate with no party affiliation in the general election race and is expected to win a fourth term in the Legislature.
