Michael Avenatti thread

This thread exists to discuss Michael Avenatti and his performance as a lawyer and his general character.

Is he a good advocate and is he corrupt?

Don't know the man to comment on his general character, but he does seem to being pretty professional as a Lawyer, going for the best deal for his client.

This does seem to be little more than a hit thread though, guaranteed to turn into a bunch of Ad hominem attacks against him, mostly built on pure rumour and speculation.

Maybe it does, maybe not.

Depends on whether his previous cases had some particular political or public policy impact.

If his moral character and his abilities are to be in question, then let us be relieved he is not the president of the United States or the president's lawyer.

Seems he might be considered a political figure. If he is not then I would expect a few changes around here.

How is this thread supposed to distract from all the nonsense Trump is doing? That is, after all, the primary purpose of attacking Avenatti.

I think the point is by creating this thread there won't be the clutter in other threads (particularly the "stormy Daniels sues trump" thread).

Seconded!

Of course the various stupid, idiotic, lying Trump lackeys would much much rather discuss how horrible Avenatti is for representing porn star Stormy Daniels as opposed to discussing how horrible it was for Trump to cheat on his wife with the porn star Stormy Daniels just after his wife gave birth to his son.

The Trump lackeys have got to be about the most terrible people in the world of politics.

He seems to be a pretty competent lawyer to me. Has been very successful in baiting Trump and his lackeys into speaking in public about issues relating to the lawsuit when they ought to be keeping their mouth shut. Seems to be giving Cohen and Trump all the rope they need to hang themselves.

He seems to be an effective lawyer and there are reasons to think that he's not above bending the rules. Neither affects the fact that he performed a valuable public service by revealing yet more corruption within the Trump inner circle.

Another thing to consider is what Stormy Daniels' goals actually are. She may have concerns other than just winning her lawsuit. For example, thoroughly exposing the foul character of the people attacking her reputation may be her goal, in which case I think her lawyer is doing a fairly good job. They are also dealing with the timing of the myriad of criminal investigations and trials surrounding the Trump organization. Leveraging that to aid their civil claim seems like a good move too.

I haven't really looked into the guy, but I think it is fair to point out that TBD seems to be a pretty competent lawyer compared to Cohen.

Michael Avenatti tested legal boundaries as his firm maneuvered into bankruptcy

Patently frivolous involuntary bankruptcy temporarily saves Eagan Avenatti from disaster.

Saved by a mohawked ex-con, who paid cash for a po box, and filed an involuntary bankruptcy the next day using that anonymous address.

Here is the article in today's LA Times...

http://www.latimes.com/politics/la-n...601-story.html

Here is another article breaking today about how "Exclusive: How a 'nobody' ex-con pushed Avenatti law firm into bankruptcy."

Quote:
In court papers, Avenatti's lawyers described Tobin as a "private investigator" who'd performed undisclosed services for Avenatti's firm.

But Tobin, 48, is no private investigator, a CNN investigation found.

He's a convicted felon whose rap sheet is 15 pages long and spans four decades, according to court records. He served time in prison in the early 90s and was arrested on domestic violence charges as recently as February. (He pleaded not guilty and the case is awaiting trial).
Oh yeah, you better believe that Avenatti has this clown locked down as tight as a tick with a Non-disclosure agreement.

He is indeed quite the mohawk aficionado, tho.

Quote:
The filing of the document in the involuntary bankruptcy suit cost $1,717.00 according to a handwritten notation on Tobin's paperwork. Filing a civil lawsuit in state or federal court in Orlando would have cost $400, according to fees listed on court websites.
Wonder where he got the 200 cash for the po box and the 1700 bucks for the filing fee, huh?

I'm guessing Sunny California....

From the LA Times article linked above:

Quote:
Four days later, Avenatti took a gamble in a reach for quick cash. He filed an emergency request for an extra $3.4 million in payments to Eagan Avenatti from the cemetery settlement fund even though the firm already had received its entire $23.5 million share.
Quote:
In the end, Avenatti signed a court statement admitting he never notified the other parties that he was seeking the money. The court’s order authorizing the $3.4-million payment to Eagan Avenatti was withdrawn.
Damnnnn.... farewell and adieu .....

Here is the guy who came up with almost 2000 bucks to tip Michael Avenatti's firm into bankruptcy right before Mike had to sit for his dep, and he did it all by himself, totally without a lawyer at all!

Bottom feeder and troll Michael Avenatti went on twitter to request that people swipe Rudy Guilliani's internet browsing habits.

Recall that this was the guy who used a several times over convicted felon to scurry around Florida trying to sign up Pulse Nightclub victims.

what a scumbag

I don't know enough about Avenatti's political positions to vote for him.

But I would definitely hire him for a media spokesperson or an attorney in a case where a positive media strategy was beneficial.

Perhaps also worth noting: Donald Trump has been in 3 softcore porn videos.

Actually the scumbag comment is based on FAR more than that, like hiring an excon to chase down victims of the Pulse Nightclub shooting.

It is bad (and that means that when Trump did it, it was also bad).

It seems not unlikely that the answer is yes to both.

So I think he would be a good lawyer to represent me but I am not sure I would want a business relationship with him,

Thirsty's repeated representations to the courts and press that Eagan Avenatti is not involved in the porn star's case?

Lies perpetrated to defraud his creditors.

Trump should have hired Avenetti as his lawyer, since Avenetti is cleaning up after him anyway.
