1. More from the Green Eyed monsters... I'd think if Stormy didn't think so, he wouldn't be

still on her case.

What paternalistic garbage IMHO.

2. It is quite possible that a porn star's lawyer is on the verge of helping take down a president.

So, as to your OP, yes, she has gotten more than her money's worth. Equal parts of justice, fame and revenge.

4. even *if* he's more of a p.r. guy than a lawyer, why should that bother her?

if he's advancing her career, why should it overly bother her even if he weren't doing a great job advancing her court case from a legal perspective?

i have no particular reason to think he's not doing a good job as far as the technical aspects of her case go, but if it's helping her career, if it's furthering her sense of civic duty or overall justice, then it's all worthwhile even if he's not necessarily the best as far as the case itself is concerned.

she's selling out everywhere she goes, she got on snl, and i'm guessing her videos are selling like hotcakes. she can't be unhappy with the way things are playing out.

5. He's not doing this for money from her.

His fees would be at if reach for most anyone at this point. He's doing this to make a name for himself and he will be much sought after (it's not like he was unknown before this) charging premium rates.

He is a fearless shark (and I mean that in a nice way) and the funny part is that Trump would KILL to have Avenetti on his side. That's what cracks me up about this more than anything. Avenetti has chewed up Trumps lawyers left and right and spit them out.

6. Doing it to "make a name for himself?"

You don't give him any credit for seeing a criminal get his due? Or maybe a sense of duty to democracy?

13. Lawyers are important, but to do their job they have to be morally flexible.

He could easily take on a morally repugnant client if it paid well.

8. The premise is nonsense. Of course she is.

Listen to what Stormy said. Itís not about money.

She refuses to be bullied by Trump.

Avenatti is doing what she wants.

10. Doesn't matter

What counts is the message. He's out there battling and it's helping us, if he benefits himself, then I'm fine with that. A win for him, is a win for Stormy and a win for us.

11. We can stipulate he is 1. Doing this all for attention

2. Doing this all for money
3. Doing this all for vendetta
4. Doing this to advance his career.
5. Doing this to bring down Donald Trump

In the meantime, the client gets to see her attorney rip her enemies a new one after they threatened her and colluded with her first lawyer to short change her.

If the client isn't complaigning, then no one else needs to complain

12. I think the entire country (well, the Dems anyway)

owe him plenty for what he is doing for us.
