Not sure about all of this    

Oh my gosh, some of you are being pretty mean. She does not need to be in a psych ward to get better, if they have her meds regulated she can do very well at home with support which she has. Haven't you noticed that she has not been out in the spotlight, maybe she is truly trying to get herself together for herself and her kids, give the girl a break.

This law firm has not had any success as Britney's lawyers, and they have lost a lot of credibility throughout all of this. Wise to get away from Britney.

I can't stand attorney's. I've had to deal with them a couple of times and most, not all, but most are condecending a-holes. But for a firm to drop a wealthy client like Brit, she must have been unbearable. She probably wasn't taking any of their advice, wasn't working them or cooperating. That's pretty bad when you get dropped by your attorney. It just wasn't worth it to them to work with the freak.

No, Britney's lawyers want to be removed as her counSEL (which refers to lawyers or givers of advice) not her counCIL (which is a group of people serving in an administrative capacity). Learn to spell, folks.

I think this girl might have a chance of getting joint custody of her kids back by having a shark lawyer like Wasser and showing the court that she has a united family as a support system for her kids. These paps and leaches, lufti #1, all around her are doing nothing but hurting her chances of looking like a good mother. I'm glad Jamie and Lynne Spears seized the opportunity to take control of this girls life and save her from herself, because she was only headed for the morgue.

No lawyer or law firm ever lasts with Britney. I don't believe she wants her pimp parents to have ANY control over HER money.
