It’s not often that a Milwaukee lawyer is hired to represent a Hollywood actor, so I have to mention this one. Wesley Snipes has fired Billy Martin, and hired Robert Bernhoft of The Bernhoft Law Firm. Bernhoft represented Snipes previously in a paternity suit, and is now on board to help defend against tax fraud allegations.
Snipes was in a bit of trouble though, because his tax fraud trial was set to start next week in Florida. The judge wasn’t too happy that he fired his lawyer and got a new one, and then asked for the trial to be continued. The judge thought it was all a ploy to delay the trial.
