Trump Accuser Summer Zervos' Ugly Breakup With Gloria Allred

I'm old enough to remember when Gloria Allred said she'd be pursuing claims against Jeffrey Epstein's estate on behalf of his victims...


At their first press conference together, in October of 2016, Zervos sat next to Allred at a table covered in microphones, looking doe-eyed and shaken. Through tears, she told reporters that Trump had aggressively kissed her twice in 2007—at one point grabbing her breast and grinding his genitals into her at what was supposed to be a business meeting. She said the experiences—which Trump denies—had caused her “a great deal of pain and anguish.”

But one year later, Zervos filed a bar complaint against her former lawyer, claiming Allred had continued to discuss her case in the press. When she was a client of Allred's, Zervos wrote, the attorney had made inaccurate statements about her case and warned her “how much worse things would get” if she tried to leave the firm. The attorney, she continued, was an “unethical opportunist who repeatedly goes against clients’ written wishes and agreements.”
