LARRY BIRKHEAD SAYS LAWYER DEBRA OPRI IS A CROOK AND A LIAR

Opricut-4e2b-a%233B6645.jpgWe just got a look at Larry Birkhead’s lawsuit papers and we’re FLOORED. Larry’s charges against his former attorney Debra Opri make her truly look like THE LAWYER FROM HELL. Larry says an MSNBC reporter hooked him up with Debra who said she was a “family law expert” and offered to take his case for free to enhance her reputation. Larry says after he hired Debra, she immediately leaked confidential information to the same reporter. Debra hired a publicist who pumped out press releases about HER every day. Larry claims Debra did numerous TV appearances talking about the case and he had to warn her not to badmouth his baby’s mother Anna Nicole Smith. He says she negotiated a deal for $1050,000 for him (with an unnamed magazine or TV show) and when the first installment of $865,000 was paid, it went right into DEBRA’S account. Birkhead asked her, out of decorum and respect, NOT to attend Anna Nicole’s funeral, but Debra DID, and she made a big deal out of blabbing about his business matters. Birkhead also claims Debra started a “Save Dannielynn” fund and collected donations to help pay legal fees and all donations went into HER account. When Larry demanded his $865,000 numerous times, Debra forked over $200,000 and no more. Larry says THAT’S why he fired her – he wants his money. Debra promptly announced that she QUIT and billed him for over $620,000. THIS will be an interesting legal battle. If Larry’s right, Debra sounds like the sleaziest lawyer alive – let’s hope Birkhead has learned that you get what you pay for.

    Since when is a lawyer expected to render legal services for free? Any ideal of how much time that case took? Dealing with the jurisdictions of L.A. and the Bahamas? I understand that the $$$ is in her client’s trust account. Her bill should be scrutinized for accuracy and fairness, but if he signed a retainer agreement with her…he needs to pay it. Keep in mind, without her he would have gotten nothing.

    Larry’s a celebrity whore of the worst order because he’s using a child to feed his fame-hungry, cash-starving insecure pathetic self. Between genetics and environment, that poor Dannielynn is DOOMED.

    Opri took the case for free for the publicity SHE would get. But she screwed herself with her bad behavior. Opri was an embarrassment from the very beginning. She pushed and pushed and pushed (badmouthing Anna, grandstanding in court, calling Howard K. Stern a murderer) and finally someone is pushing back. She’s a disgrace.

    Another lawyer who craves the spotlight and offers her services for free is Gloria Allred…
    Larry won once, hope he wins this one. The guy has been through quite a bit..

    If Larry wants to make money from interviews and photos that’s his
    business. Debra implied on CNN that she offered her services to Larry as a good deed.
    OPRI: No, no. The bills are mounting and both Larry and myself, we`ve been writing checks and putting out money, and it`s a pleasure. If this is the last case I ever have, and if this is the last mission I ever accomplish, if this is the last good deed I ever do, it will have been something very wonderful, fighting this fight for Larry Birkhead, because Dannielynne, in many years to come, will turn around and say, somebody cared about me.

    Opri may be a sleaze, but heck,Larry hired her to be his a-hole. And it ULTIMATELY paid off:
    he now has his baby. If Anna Nicole hadn’t died, his daughter would most likely still be with the creepy Stern and Anna.
    Hopefully they’ll settle this out of court!

    From the start, I thought to myself, “She wants to be the next Gloria Allred.” All about her.

    It was obvious from the start of Opri and Birkhead that she was pushy, obnoxious, and craving the media spotlight. I thought I saw her say she took that case to help Larry, regardless of costs. Of course she said a lot of things that were not true. I wouldn’t hire her.

    No doubt about it, Opri is a low class whore. Low class whores deserve to be paid. He ain’t any better.

    Opri took the case because she wanted FREE publicity for her “practice”. Throughout she put herself first before her client. I hope she loses her license to practice law. Because she’s proven to be a better thief and media whore than a honest, trusted lawyer.

    Just watch that sleazy woman for just one minute on any of the countless interviews she has given and you instantly know she wants to be the next coming of Gloria Allred. It’s sad enough that a sleaze like Allred already exists, but Opri makes Allred look like Mother Teresa. This is the reason why we hate lawyers so much.

    I never liked him until I heard he likes the man candy,
    Now he’s growing on me.
    Yeah, I’d be his baby Daddy and he can be my b***h.

    Howard K. Stern is the one who told Larry that his lawyer (Opri) should rep him for free from all the publicity. LArry signed a fee agreement in Sept. 06. His lawsuit has no mareits. Opri will win! She is a smart cookie!

    SHE IS A PRIME EXAMPLE OF THE DEFINITION OF THE “C WORD”. I DON’T BLAME LARRY FOR CASHING IN. HE WAS THRUST INTO A FREAKING SOAP OPERA – HE MAY AS WELL MAKE HAY WHILE THE GETTIN IS GOOD. I THINK HE LOVED ANNA AND HE LOVED THAT KID – EVEN IF THEY HAD BEEN BROKE. THAT LAWYER WAS AN ABRASIVE BIOTCH FROM THE GET-GO. I WANT TO SEE HER SLAMMED.

    Her voice is the absolute worst. It is like three people taking their long fingernails and scratching them across a blackboard.

    that case would have made it through the courts on its own, the baby was in no danger with Howard, the first time I saw this piece of scum attack Anna, a grieving mother, calling her names, a liar, and making disgusting insinuations about Howard, it was lights out for me. I am sure Birkhead had lawyers fighting to do this case gratis, he did not have to let Opri into this, he got vry bad advice, and apparently does not remember her big mouth from Michael Jackson’s days. I hope she is disbarred. Gloria Allred has done a lot of good, she has a wonderful daughter, she likes to showboat but she respects the law and so does her daughter unlike this pig.
