The bill from your lawyer, if that was what you were referring to, is deductible on Schedule A, subject to a threshold of 2% of AGI. You would list it in TurboTax on the Deductions & Credits page under Other Deductions and Credits.

Regarding the tax treatment of legal settlements, see the FAQ below.
