3:53 PM PDT -- Gloria just released a statement ... insisting she will file a counterclaim against Okorocha for defamation.

Allred adds, "Doe #1 and Doe #2 contacted me seeking representation, and we have the evidence to prove it."

"Mr. Okorocha's lawsuit will be dismissed, and we will ultimately recover a judgment against him."

The lawyer who filed a lawsuit against John Travolta on behalf of two masseurs is suing Gloria Allred for allegedly stealing one of his clients, calling her an ambulance chaser and claiming "She ain't been in a courtroom in 20 years."

Okorie Okorocha just filed the lawsuit, claiming Gloria approached the second masseur -- John Doe #2 -- asking him to fire Okorocha and hire her.

As we reported, Okorocha dropped the first masseur -- John Doe #1 -- after TMZ broke the story that Travolta was in New York -- not anywhere near Beverly Hills -- on the date the alleged sexual assault occurred.

In his lawsuit, Okorocha says Doe #1 hired Gloria, and then she made her play for the other masseur. 

Okorocha attached text messages to his lawsuit between himself and Doe #2, in which Okorocha wrote, "I can't believe f**king Allred called you."  He added, "She ain't been in a courtroom in 20 years.  Just doing stupid ass press conference side shows."

If Travolta would just come out of the closet, these douche-bag lawyers would go away. For about five minutes.

The world's lawyer emissions have passed a tipping point. These are the first signs of the end of the world coming this year when society will collapse because everyone is suing everyone else for everything.

At first he said he wasn't suing, but now that the cases might have some merrit he wants in. He dropped the first case and was probably about to drop the second one. Said what you want but she gets results and money. She hasn't gone to court in twenty years because the people she goes against always pah her clients for silence. Innocent people don't do payoffs, guilty do. So in my eyes getting someone to lay your client millions without a judge telling them is winning. Plus who is this no body?

Instead of licking sweaty ones, it sounds like Gloria is going to bust Travolta's balls. No happy ending this time, John!

What else is NEW??? If Okorocha's former clients actually had "ANY" faith in his abilities, they WOULDN'T HAVE JUMPED SHIP!!! He's only filing this lawsuit as a gesture to "SAVE FACE". It doesn't seem as though he had "vetted" his former clients THAT WELL!!! Frankly, I think he's being "undermined" to discourage other potential accusers from hiring him. It takes a substantial "WAR CHEST" to go up against a legal "pit bull" such as Marty Singer and Gloria Allred is much more likely to "quietly" settle than sue!!!

Wasn't something said about Allred contacting Oksana when she was going after Mel? Then her daughter got in on the action to save her mother's arse and bury the evidence?
I believe this guy. I suspect Allred does this alot!

YES - expose that media-fiend's illegal and unethical tactics. She's a disgrace to the legal profession. Imagine if all lawyers just went up to other lawyers' clients to solicit them to switch over - the whole profession would be regarded as sleazy and unprofessional, and apparently Allbad is doing her part to make it that way. She can be rich, famous, etc., but disgracing the profession is intolerable, and she should be dealt with.

I'm sure Okorocha's clients left him because he seems less than brilliant. He made a lot of off the wall statements & claims & sounds like a bus stop lawyer looking for a cut in the Travolta payoff.

Allred is irritating but she does seem to be good at getting settlements. I'd go with her if I wanted the money.

Good. Gloria Allred needs to be disbarred. It's about time somebody had the balls to stand up to this extortionist. I really wish the media would stop covering this piece of s***. She's a total f***ing joke.
