Lawyer to Pam -- Bach You!

8/24/2007 12:39 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The Hoff's ex has been sued by her former lawyer, who claim she owes him a boatload of fees.
Pamela Bach documents
Attorney Gary Mitchell says he represented Pamela Bach in her ongoing divorce war with David Hasselhoff. He claims he repped Bach for six months, but she didn't pay his $39,092.60 bill. Strangely, according to the suit filed in L.A. County Superior Court, Mitchell says his deal with Pam was oral -- no written retainer agreement.

Ironically, just yesterday, Debra Opri, the lawyer Pam fired, won a strange legal battle. A judge ruled that The Hoff was not required to pay Opri's $189,000 legal bill. She repped Bach for a few months, but we're told Pam was so dissatisfied she didn't want anyone -- not even David -- to pay the bill.

The drama continues.

I'm not a lawyer, but I thought that in California, there had to be a written agreement between lawyer and client if fees would go over $1,000. If there is no agreement, has the lawyer himself broken the law?

YAWN    

This guy's bill for $40K for 6 months doesn't sound all that unreasonable. Compare that to $189K for a couple of months billed by that Opri bi-otch...

Too bad    

His agreement with her was oral.

No wonder she doesn't want to pay up 40K worth!

Hey TMZ do you proof-read what you post?

"...Debra Opri, the lawyer Pam fired, won a strange legal battle. A judge ruled that The Hoff was not required to pay Opri's $189,000 legal bill.."

How is this a win for the lawyer, who does not get to collect her fees?

I know it's not fair to try to get out of paying what you owe. But she obviously got really lousy representation from her lawyer. David Hasselhoff was seen in a gross video, drunk out of his mind and being videotaped by his daughter. And the courts gave HIM custody of those two daughters?! What were they thinking?

Euroman its a win for Opri because it was David Hasselhoff who Pam said was supposed to pay the bill....

Since David was not ordered to pay the bill it will be Pams job to pay it, in other words Pam was under the impression that she would get fee's paid in her divorce but they weren't so she's on the line for the costs.

Just what the money grubbing b***h deserves. More people asking her for money....

As for Opri I hope she doesn't get paid from Pam either. That is one low class lawyer.

Hmmm, I wonder did you pay Kap, Pammy??? Displeased??? Pullllleeeezzzze ...then she must have been displeased with all her other dozen attorneys.

Shame on both parents......the poor children who are raised by individuals who hate each other more than they love their children is appalling. Suck it up....you throw money at your children to entertain them and keep them close....show some responsibility and get your lives together for their sake.

Go with the Flow!    

This bitch should pay Gary Mitchell her former lawyer and also the woman she hit and ran and harrassed. Debra Opri should deflate her inflated bills and than get paid by the Bach. Pamela Bark lost cutody because of her own KARMA.

Deadbra Dopri's jinx spell is going to continue for a long time. That's her KARMA! She
did not have the humanity or ethics in her to wait to start the custody battle with the late
ANNA NICOLE SMITH who had lost her young son just a few days after she had a
baby. She just could not respect a poor heartbroken mother. She had to get on TV to show her ugly self and announce to the world on how she had filed the papers in court
to demand to get a DNA testing done.

Pamela Bark and Deadbra Dopri are heartless, cold bitches as is Kim Basinger, her
KARMA is going to come around full circle soon and hit her right in her ass. BITCHES!
B U R N I N HELL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
