EXCLUSIVE: Biggest Loser star Jillian Michaels – Sues Ex-Lawyers for $40 Million for Legal Malpractice
The Dirty can exclusively reveal The Biggest Loser star Jillian Michaels has slapped her former lawyers with a $40 million lawsuit … accusing them of screwing her over in favor of lining their pockets with millions.
Michaels sued the L.A. law firm Greenberg Traurig for legal malpractice and breach of contract. She’s accusing them of negligent legal representation in connection with advertising and licensing contracts.
The trainer explains she hired the firm in 2008 … as her celebrity and name were rising … for help to negotiate the incoming contracts. However, she says the lawyers were lazy, took short cuts, and committed ethical violations and even concealed fraud. She believes they only cared about making millions for themselves without any concern for her finances.
One example, she claims they failed to inform her of conflicting contract provisions and not fully informing her of the paperwork she signed until way later.
Michaels is suing the law firm for $40 million dollars.
