IF you paid the same $ amount to the Attorney and the Plaintiff, then yes, you can issue the 1099's to reflect that.
If you paid the Plaintiff the whole $ amount, and THEY were to reimburse the Attorney, then no.
You need to issue the 1099 to the party/parties you actually pay.
If you have further questions, please post them here and I'll be notified.
