No surprise.

Lard-boy has a long history of stiffing the law firms he hires to protect his very wide backside.

Plus, they don't want the negative publicity of defending such a schlump.

It'd be bad for business.

Of course attorneys don't want to work for him. Attorneys are sticklers about being paid. They don't want to get sued for malpractice after he turns on them. They know he lies and they don't want to deal with ethics charges and being disbarred. Probably think he's going down and they don't want to go with him.
I guess Ivanka or Jared can be AG and FBI Director. They're about as qualified to do that as anything else they're doing in the west wing.

Would you work for him? A boss who will stab you in the back, throw you under the boss, who shows no loyalty or support, who publicly contradicts them, who makes them lie, who makes them look foolish. So many reasons, so little time.

He may end up with Giuliani and Christie because neither one of them has much left to lose and they both appear to be willing to sacrifice any semblance of a reputation that they had.

Can't wait until this presidential farce is over.

Thank god he has his own loyal attorney who knows him and will defend him no matter what.
But, a person who represents himself has a fool for a client!

I can see why top firms would turn him down. He has a track record of not taking advice, and getting frustrated with his team. What law firm wants to be on the receiving end of negative tweets from POTUS when he gets frustrated? Or be subject to anonymous source articles? It's too much risk without much reward.



Seriously, when the going gets tough you don't want a criminal lawyer; you want a *CRIMINAL* lawyer.

What DT wants is some street wise slightly *ahem* unorthodox attorney that knows his way around. Forget the White Shoe firms, find someone from NYC, Chicago, Boston who like Trump came up on the "streets", is a bit vulgar and rather like a bull loose in a china shop.


Establishment law partnerships of D.C., NYC, Boston, LA, etc... aren't going to touch DT with a barge pole.


Again His Orangessness is well known for not paying bills on time, and or haggling them down. When that fails using bankruptcy courts to do the reductions. That alone would raise warning flags at any partnership meeting.


Next who the heck wants to be on the receiving end of DT's madness? Who wants to be telephoned at all hours of the night, on weekends and so forth expected to drop everything and kneel at the supposed all knowing and wise DT? What attorney and or his team wants to spend hours preparing a legal brief only to have DT say "you're an idiot, here is what *I* think we should do...".


Some things can be worked around, but the paying (or not is it were) bit is hard for firms to get around.

One of the law firms that took him on as a client during one of the 1990s bankruptcies testified in court that they had to send two lawyers to meet with Trump, because without a witness present, he'd lie about what happened in meetings.
Maybe that's why Comey also requested to never be left alone with Trump.

That is an old trick in legal, employment, political and many other circles. You always want a witness and or witnesses when dealing with situations that can come back to haunt later.


When someone asks to speak to you "in private" or "off the record", best to either record the conversation or better yet have someone witness the event. Similarly if called into a supposed "private" meeting with an employer or whatever and one or more persons are also present, you know it isn't going to go well.


There is an old saying in legal profession; oral agreements aren't worth the paper they are written upon.


What is said in private can easily come down to a "he said-he said" situation. That and no small end of persons have been sold down the river and even executed despite assurances in "private conversations" otherwise.


All one party has to do is deny what the other has said, and that is an end of things.


In the legal world courts will look for corroborating evidence from either side to support their position. That is where those recordings can come in handy, that and or why one should have some sort of witness even if they are only listening unobserved.

Hey, Trump LOVES lawyers. He does things without thinking ahead and then tasks his lawyers with cleaning up his messes. Lack of strategic thinking => high lawyer fees =>waste of money.

Trump needs a very good legal team experienced in government matters. The good ones are not going to touch him because Trump can't be trusted to keep his mouth shut and he doesn't pay.

The guy who doesn't pay his bills and stiffs small contractors isn't looking too smart right now, is he?
