Jamie McCourt

I've Dropped $9.9 MILLION

On Divorce Lawyers!

8/2/2011 4:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jamie McCourt
says she's already racked up $9.9 million in bills from the lawyers working her nasty divorce from L.A. Dodgers owner Frank McCourt ... and she expects to drop at least $7 million more.

Jamie just filed legal documents in L.A. County Superior Court, claiming Frank is in control of the family fortune ... and she wants the judge to order Frank to send her more money so she can continue to make her legal payments.

According to the docs, Jamie's lawyers ain't cheap -- and they charge anywhere from $325-per-hour to $940-per-hour.  FYI -- the McCourts filed for divorce back in 2009.

Jamie claims she needs the cash to "level the playing field" -- because Frank has had access to $70 million of non-Dodgers money to spend on top-flight lawyers ... and she wants to be able to keep up.

Typical lawyers. Legalized theft. Look at any of them in your own town and see the lifestyle they live, then you'll know for certain WHY they became lawyers. It certainly was NOT to "help" people or companies. They make used car dealers look like gods.

She better tuck away a few dollars for face work once the legal battle is over. She's spent so much time in the sun her neck looks like it belongs on a turtle (and I ain't talkin' Entourage!)

What a bunch of idiots! The way the law is written they have to split their former assets. So they have given millions of dollars to (crack dealers) lawyers who have no morals regarding watching people destroy their own lives. With how many divorces exist in the U.S. you would think someone would step up and streamline the proceedings so that ambulance chasers can't destroy people because of their own stupidity.

What a complete joke. Hope the lawyers take both of them for everything they've got.
