For many years, the legal profession has had a negative connotation that led to many jokes comparing them to snakes and sharks (personally, I like snakes and sharks and wouldn’t degrade them by comparing them to a lawyer).
There were even some communities in early colonial days that wouldn’t allow lawyers to live inside city limits or be in the city after sundown.
That reaction to attorneys applies to a modern-day attorney, Michael Avenatti, who has claimed to be a champion for women.
Avenatti has represented several women who have made sexual accusations against President Donald Trump and Brett Kavanaugh.
Avenatti has now been arrested and charged with felony domestic violence.
The New American – Still Facing Grassley’s FBI Referral, Avenatti Arrested on Domestic Violence Charge – Porn lawyer Michael Avenatti just found out what’s like to be accused of a crime with no real way to defend one’s reputation in the middle of a media barrage of stories about it.
Police arrested Avenatti, who represented porn queen Stormy Daniels in her silly defamation lawsuit against the president, on a charge of felony domestic violence, multiple media reports say.
Although celebrity tabloid website TMZ reported that his estranged second wife was the victim, she subsequently denied the report.
Avenatti, whose calls himself a champion for put-upon women, also denied the charge. But whether he’s cleared in this one, he faces another serious problem. Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley has asked the FBI to probe Avenatti’s false gang-rape claims about U.S. Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh…
What is surprising is that the court set Avenatti’s bail at only $50,000 which he easily posted and was free to walk out of jail.
Naturally, Avenatti denies the charge and has declared his innocence, but then he has proven in the past that his word cannot be trusted.
Avenatti was the attorney for one of Brett Kavanaugh’s accusers which a full investigation led to the conclusion that the accusation was unfounded and probably not truthful.
Avenatti also has a habit of representing a number of porn stars other than Stormy Daniels.
