Opri: I Will Get My Reputation Back!

6/19/2007 3:28 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Now that two celebrity clients have given her the ax, newly available attorney Debra Opri has vowed to get her reputation back. She started moments ago by spouting off a list of excuses why she couldn't come up a winner for Pamela Bach in her custody fight with David Hasselhoff.

After Bach formally fired Debra in a Los Angeles County Superior court session earlier today, Opri, who was also at court, told our cameras "I only had a month to turn things around, I got my marching orders and I ran out of time." Cue the world's smallest violin.

When Opri learned that her other celeb former client, Larry Birkhead, was handling some business in the same court today -- without the $650,000 check she claims he owes her -- Opri quipped "I'll have to stop by and say hi!"

Daddy wants some of the pie too.    

When an attorney isn't ready they file a continuance, Debra. My bill for this advice is in the mail. What do you mean $135,000 isn't fair? Just be happy I took my associates to Burger KIng and didn't buy them lobster!

She brought this completely on herself. Personally, I'm looking forward to her getting disbarred over the Birkhead fiasco.

FROM DAY ONE THAT I WATCH YOU IN COURT WITH THE WHOLE ANNA NICOL CASE, I HAVE TO SAY THAT IT WOOD HAVE BEEN BETTER FOR YOU TO BE AN ACTRESS THAN A LAWYER !!!!! BECAUSE YOU HAVE TO LEARN "PUBLIC RELATIONS " FIRST OF ALL', - AND YOU DONT HAVE THE ATTITUDE OF "ATTRACTION" TO THE PUBLIC, TO WANT THEM TO HIRE YOU FOR THEIR LEGAL PURPOSE !!!! AND YOU WANT "ONLY .......PUBLICITY !!!!!! YOU HAVE TO DO A U -TURN FOR YOUR PERSONAL PROBLEMS ! YOU ARE GIVING ONLY A NEGATIVE IMAGE !!!!

You don't "get" a reputation, you earn a reputation. That she wants to "get" one shows she doesn't deserve a good one.

Get over your lust for men you cannot have, the lust for money, your anger and resentments toward men, people that have more than you do and get real, forget about the money and making all those ecuses for the inexcuseable, if you want to repair your image there is where to start.
