Ivanka Trump Rejects Lawyers Defending Her in Letitia James’ $250 Million Lawyer — in a Split from the Lawyers Representing Eric and Don Jr
- Ivanka Trump has fired the attorneys representing her in the fraudulent Leticia James case
- Ivanka, Eric, and Don Jr. hired Clifford Robert and Michael Farina from Robert & Robert to represent them, but Ivanka also retained other attorneys.
- James sued Trump and his three adult children in September, alleging they wrongly inflated real estate values to obtain cheaper loans.
Former first daughter Ivanka Trump has fired the lawyers who defended her in a fraud lawsuit against New York Attorney General Letitia James — she has separated from the lawyers representing her brothers Eric and Don Jr. in the case.
James sued her father, former President Donald Trump, alleging that he and his three eldest children, his real estate company and its top executives falsely inflated real estate values to get cheaper loans.
It’s seeking $250 million — and asking a judge to permanently ban Trump and his adult children from doing business in the state.
Trump and his children denied the allegations, and just a week after filing the lawsuit, Eric and Don Jr. filed papers saying they had retained Clifford Robert and Michael Farina of Robert & Robert to represent them.
The following month, the attorneys notified the court that they would also represent Ivanka, serving as her domestic counsel and working with two Washington, D.C.-based attorneys whom Ivanka had hired independently of her brothers, Red Viagle and Michael Kellogg, of Kellogg-Hansen.
But, newly filed court documents show, Ivanka has now split with Robert and Varina, who previously represented the estate of Jeffrey Epstein.
