Sheree Whitfield’s Lawyers Take Her to Court Over Unpaid Legal Fees: Is Chateau Sheree in Jeopardy?
It’s a good thing Sheree Whitfield got her online jewelry boutique up and running, because her former divorce lawyers are taking her to court claiming that they were never paid for services they provided Sheree during her divorce from her ex-husband, Bob Whitfield.
According to Straight From the A, Sheree was in court on August 15 to face off against her former lawyers who allege that she never paid them during her divorce, and this isn’t the first time they’ve tried to collect their money.
In 2010, Sheree’s lawyers (from the now defunct firm Weinstock & Scavo) sued Sheree and Bob for their legal fees, and after the couple neglected to pay, the firm went after Sheree’s Aston Martin and seized it to satisfy her debt of over $100,000 in legal fees.
While Sheree’s current ride (a Porsche, natch) is well protected, since her lawyers have yet to be paid, rumor has it they could be going after Chateau Sheree.
Sacre bleu, not the chateau, anything but the chateau!
Luckily (and perhaps surprisingly), Sheree is one step ahead of her former lawyers. The house — which is almost complete — is actually in Sheree’s mother’s name, so she’s currently in court trying to prove that since it technically it isn’t one of her assets, it can’t be seized to pay any of her debts.
That was some quick thinking Sheree, let’s hope everything works out!
