Daniels' lawyer, Michael Avenatti, argued that the $341,559.50 requested for an alleged 509.25 hours of attorney time is a "staggering and grossly inflated sum."

The proper figure is closer to $25,000, Avenatti said in the court filing Monday in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles.

Avenatti needs to save his money for legal fees now that Grassley referred him for prosecution.

Those fees are probably right in line for Trump’s lawyers and in my opinion a little low. That comes out to about $700 and hour and I imagine the real cost is more like a $1000 and hour on up. Pay it Baby.

$650 per hour is fairly typical for high caliber, big city lawyers.

A few more pole and lap dances, and some more nude photos shoots, and she’ll have that bill paid.

Less than $700 an hour? She’s getting a bargain, CPL.

Hopefully Avenatti took the case on a contingency and so is stuck with providing representation to conclude the case for free.

I predict she’ll open a Go Fund Me page or one of Soros’ third-party groups will pay her.
