Jackson Custody Lawyer Files Small Claim

11/16/2009 10:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Michael JacksonThe law firm that represented Michael Jackson in his custody battle against Debbie Rowe back in 2005 is going after the singer's estate big time, to the tune of ... $1,419.70. Wait, what?

The Law Offices of Michael L. Abrams filed a creditor's claim against the Jackson estate last week, claiming the singer owed the firm for a little bit of legal work earlier this year. And by "little" we mean just 4.35 hours, according to the claim.

Jackson paid part of the bill, the claim indicates, which includes a $14 parking charge.

Considering most creditor's claims against the estate have been six and seven figures, we figure it's easier for the estate to just pay it rather than fight it.

DID YOU EVER SEE THE LIVE CONCERT AT BUCHAREST? I DON'T CARE WHAT ANYBODY SAYS, I'M TELLING YOU THAT WAS LIVE SINGING & DANCING FOR 2 STRAIGHT HOURS. GRANTED THAT WAS BACK IN 1991 OR 1992 BUT AT THAT TIME TELL ME WHAT OTHER PERFORMER COULD PULL THAT OFF? YOU CAN TELL HE WAS ACTUALLY SINGING IN THAT CONCERT. IT WAS ONE OF THE BEST SHOWS I HAVE EVER SEEN!

One would think they'd simply take a tax write-off I mean really, the hours spent with just filing paperwork and wasting manhours not to mention the dollar amount in wages that will need to be paid in couriers,etc which I'm sure they will tack on to the bill is insane. How petty, they weren't so hand to mouth when it came time to represent him, I'm sure when he first walked through that door each of those blood suckers were falling all over themselves trying to decide which one was was going to represent him. If MJ was alive or could see, Oh, to only be a fly on the wall!

What a ugly family thank God for plastic surgery.
Even after surgery some of them are still ugly.
I would like to see what Jacko would have looked like without surgery.

They were in it for the money    

I can see here none of the posters have ever worked in the music field because of you did, you would know that 90% of any concert is digitally inhanced You ever work a master sound board? This is a wizardry machine. Sing alto no problem the board will take your voice to soprano tenor or bass. Making a song that has a 3minute limit no problem just speed up the music and the voice and lower the octave at the same time. You ask any singer to sing to you and you will hear something different. they cant sing that good.
Personally I dont care how Michael Jackson did his shows. I want to know why he who had a problem was basically killed by negliegence and no arrests have been made. do Doctors hide under a seal of athority the same as the police when they take a life? Anybody else would have been locked up immediately. Micahel Jackson wasnt too poular with the police or courts. They have to go through the motion but nothing will happen in this. Labeled a drug addict with a taste for a non controlled drug. He sought it and he bought it. the Doctor will onyl lose his license to practice in California and thats a nothing because he never really worked in California.

Michael always sung when he performed. In "This is it".
He was clearly saving his voice. He said so.There is always
bthe recorded version of the show because of movement and dancing. When he's not in movement so much he sings. When he starts
dancing and the movement is noticable in singing they turn the
cd up. He also does it when catching his breath.
Example: in Thriller the concert performance he used to put on the wolf mask. Don you really think he was singing that clearly?
Not to mention that was not him in the mask. It was a double
While he changed for the next number."Billie Jean" which is on
a lift over the audience. Its a performance. Good singers
sing a lot especially hit songs but not all at some point.
Geesshhh stop hating.

Why is everybody saying Michael didnt pay his bills. I'm sure he wasnt running around with his checkbook in his back pocket. I'm sure he had an accountant. Why didnt they npay his bills for him? I really dont think that he was a dead beat.
