Judge to Opri -- You Get a Big Fat Zero!

8/23/2007 2:48 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Attorney Debra Opri just got shut down in her latest attempt to catch a fee.
Click to read!

Opri repped Pamela Bach, The Hoff's ex, for a few months in the ongoing divorce saga. Opri's bill -- $189,000! Opri was fired on June 18. She then filed a motion asking the court to order The Hoff to pay her attorney's fees.

Today, the judge signed an order rejecting Opri's motion, ruling that Pam never gave her permission to go after The Hoff for the fees. Of course, you ask, why wouldn't Pam want David to foot the bill? -- she'd be off the hook.

We're told Pam is angry at Opri and doesn't want her paid, period. Ouch.

Pam is currently being repped by celeb lawyer Mark Vincent Kaplan, K-Fed's legal eagle.

She got what she deserved not damn think. She sucks as an attorney and is an embarrassment to real attorneys. Yes bills can get hight but for legit stuff; some please sanction her....wait don't or she will become the next Nancy Grace.

At this point I would think Opri would step out of the lime light and go practice in some small unknown town. How many clients have to drag her through the dirt before her phone stops ringing?

What could an attorney possibly do that would make a divorce case that she didn't even complete worth $180,000? Not only is Opri out of line, but a person would need rocks in their head to hire her, based on her (lack of) reputation.

She is a joke, there is no way an attorney in a divorce case is worth over $100,000!!!!!! She's in a lot of hot water lately, seems at the rate she's going she will be disbarred soon.

That's pretty damn funny! Her client decides not to pay her, so Opri thinks she can collect her clients fees from the defendant. LOL

Why would and does anyone hire this ho?
She has overinflated fees and she loses the cases. She didn't even win the Dannilynn/Nicole Smith baby thing..another lawyer did.
She should go the way of the DA in Duke Fake Rape case.
Disbar her.

tyson,

I don't like Opri either. She leads the pack of money hungry dishonest attorneys. But, although I'm not Nancy Graces’s biggest fan she was an unbelievably talented prosecuting attorney. They played very different roles in the court room.

So Opri is doing Pro Bono cases seeing how Larry B. didn't pay her either?!

Good to know. Get a high profile attorney and then stiff her when things don't go your way!

How does this woman stay in business? Who on earth would hire her?

Note to those needing legal representation: this woman's only interest is your wallet - don't hire her. If you do, you deserve what you get, errr, give.

Does any one else see a pattern here????

The writting is one the wall for Opri. And I know Opri has a lot of bloggers who try and help her but this is a judges ruling so where do you go from here?
