Ahead of his trial on rape charges, Weinstein has been reportedly trying to hire hotshot female lawyers—but at a discount, telling them it will be good for their careers https://t.co/vvXnQhep5B— The Daily Beast (@thedailybeast) February 26, 2019
This loser is looking to hire more female lawyers to soften his image but doesn’t want to pay them as much. He thinks the exposure they’d get from working for him should be enough.
This strategy doesn’t seem to be working well for him though, as PageSix is reporting that he’s already been turned down by at least two top female lawyers - Isabelle Kirshner and Susan Necheles.
His legal team at one point included Pamela Mackey (the lawyer who defended Kobe Bryant on his rape case) but she dropped out over payment disputes.
His first lawyer, Ben Brafman, also quit last month.
Weinstein is currently being represented by Jose Baez and Ronald S. Sullivan Jr.
He goes to trial on June 3 and is looking at life in prison if he’s convicted.
