London (ANI): Heather Mills has been dealt a serious blow in her
divorce battle with estranged hubby Sir Paul McCartney after being
dropped by her lawyers.
Top law firm Mishcon de Reya confirmed that they had parted ways
with the animal rights activist, 15 months after taking her on as a
client. The news is especially set to hit Mills hard as her 50
million pounds divorce battle reaches a critical point.
Though a spokesperson did not comment on the reasons behind the
lawyer's decision to part ways with Mills, it is thought that it
came after Mills went against advice about appearing on television
and berating Macca.
"We can confirm that we no longer represent Heather Mills
McCartney," the Daily Mail quoted the spokesperson, as saying. "Our
strategy is that we never talk about clients either past or
present, so we can't say any more than that."
Mills was expected to be represented by Sir Anthony Julius, who
boasts a track record of court victories including helping Princess
Diana secure her divorce against Prince Charles. Mills was earlier
dealt her blow when her spokesman, Phil Hall, resigned.
