The custody case of the former flames Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt had recently suffered another hitch after the former’s lawyer took an exit from the legal battle.
However, this could be a positive sign for the Fight Club big piece, as explained by two great lawyers who explain the departure of Priya Sopori from the battle for custody between the exes.
Raoul Felder, main divorce lawyer, explained the whole situation as he was quoted by HollywoodLife, saying, “This tells me that if I were Mr. Pitt, I would be very happy based on these court documents, because there aren’t many worse things than that that could happen.” Essentially, that says something serious is happening with the petitioners.
“Either she just isn’t following the counsel’s advice, or there’s a reason the lawyer just wants out of the case,” he said.
“So I would be very happy if I was Brad Pitt. He can say look, she couldn’t get along with her own lawyer, look at that. It’s a very reputable firm and the lawyers think very carefully before they say enough is enough and they want to get out. This lawyer said: “enough is enough and I want to get out”. There’s no part of it that reflects Angelina well, ”Felder said.
“It just sends a completely negative message, which is why lawyers only do it if it becomes impossible. I suspect there must be more to the story. But we really can’t say anything about this document except for the lawyer to say, “Hey judge, I want to go out and I don’t want to defend this woman anymore.” “
“Lawyers don’t have the job of getting away from their clients, especially a reputable firm like this, so there is a side story here somewhere and it’s not good for Angelina,” he continued.
Regarding Sopori’s withdrawal, Felder said: “It usually happens with very difficult people who don’t want to follow instructions from a lawyer. The role of lawyers is to represent people. “
“You have a responsibility to continue until the client releases you or you obtain consent. But if not, it is the last resort that you must submit this withdrawal to the judge. This is a very reputable company, I can’t imagine why they would want to leave a case except for anything that I imagine is not useful for Angelina, ”he added.
Another lawyer in the family, Kelly Chang Rickert, gave her advice on Sopori’s departure, saying, “This form is usually filed after the judgment is rendered, and the lawyer’s job is done and done, so that they can withdraw.
“It’s a strange thing for them to file because the judgment was not entered, and the document even says N / A. I think what probably happened is that this company was hired for consultations on a limited basis and completed her job. But it’s not really the right form to file, ”she says.
“It is only used when the case is over and the legal work is done. So in my opinion this is a poorly filed form and they probably looked at a limited scope, and they should have filed a takedown notice after a limited scope. They were co-counsel. But I still maintain that it was not the right form, ”she added.
