Brit's Lawyers Will Quit -- She's Impossible!

1/2/2008 8:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned Britney's latest set of lawyers has bitten the dust.
Read the motion
The high-powered firm of Trope and Trope filed legal papers today asking to withdraw as Brit's hired guns in her custody dispute with K-Daddy.

In the legal papers, attorney Tara Scott from Trope and Trope wrote, "There has been a breakdown in communications between [Britney] and Trope and Trope making further representation of her interests impossible." Ding dang wha?!

No word on whether Brit has a new lawyer.

You may recall, disso-queen Laura Wasser quit Brit last year as well. Representing a popwreck can be a bitch!

UPDATE: Sources tell TMZ the reason Trope and Trope withdrew is because Britney just didn't listen to her lawyers' advice, and her behavior was generally sinking her case.

Hello! Can you say 'stalling tactic'?

This girl ain't bright, but she's definitely got street smarts.

For the kids sake I hope the judge can see through this. Give her a court apointed attorney if she doesn't hire another one before the depo.

What a Mess    

These girls should have been required to finish high school etc. Mom was too anxious for the bucks. They are a mixed up mess! Good Lord - Brit has a 9th grade education - doesn't exactly qualify you to take care of two children - along with we don't know how well she did in school while there either.....
I feel sorry for the babies - really really sorry.

The lawyers probably figured she's about to totally crack and do not want any bigger mess than they had.

'Crystal' - you are an idiot - Brit has lost it all with 'street smarts' kids, family, career, reputation, integrity - she is truly hated now USA wide - hope she does contempt jail time soon.

Wonder what took them so long to give up on her. Last time she had new attorneys within a day, so I don't think she can use this as a stall tactic. Of course pretty soon nobody will represent her, just like she couldn't get another driver when the first one quit. To the poster who thinks she'd have stood a chance if it weren't for her mother, guess again. She'd be just as bad and be the most ridiculed, shunned, and hated person in that hick town she came from, just like she is in Hollywood.

run away!    

wow, this is starting to look like a freakng circus. Britney is absolutely hopeless; it's obvious that she doesn't give a damn about her children. Let them stay with K-Fed- he might really be the more responsible parent.

I am serious. This women needs psychiatric help. It is truly one of the most horrible display of a mother who's battling for his kids. She might as well be on crack. If this was a regular women who lived in any of out neighborhoods, there is no way we would think she was mentally stable. This girl needs serious medical help folks.

Does anyone think that MAYBE these lawyers are dropping her because she won't use anything on k-fed ? just asking. Maybe their is evidence she will not use against him due to the kids,she has stated herself she does not like anyone talking bad about him...

Party 'till you die!    

Rats flee as the ship sinks! Considering that lawyers are willing to represent some of the worst elements of society, what can be said when lawyers would willingly jump off such a gravy ( stained) train? She can't even keep paid people around her! Now let's hear the Brit fans talk about what a wonderful princess she is!
