Motley Crue frontman Vince Neil’s lawyers are claiming in a new The Blast report that they ‘bent the rules’ after Neil failed to pay his legal bills.
“Vince Neil‘s former lawyers say they never took advantage of the rocker because he’s famous but instead claim they bent their own rules to accommodate his failure to pay his bills.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, the law firm Howard & Howard is responding to Neil’s claim they have overbilled him for years and accusing them of taking advantage of him because of his celebrity.
The firm has been trying to collect on $190,000 they claim the rocker owes them relating to work done on the lawsuit accusing him of assaulting a fan.”
Motley Crue singer Vince Neil was recently accused of ripping off his lawyers by not paying them, but the iconic frontman shot back by claiming that he was ripped off with overcharging for years.
The payment is regarding a lawsuit where a woman named Kelly Guerrero sued Neil in 2016 for allegedly assaulting her after she asked for an autograph.
Guerrero accused Neil of grabbing her by the hair and dragging her to the ground, which led to actor Nicolas Cage trying to calm him down. The lawyers claim Neil wasn’t paying them, but they continued to represent him regardless.
The Blast reports, “Vince Neil is fighting back against his former lawyer’s demand for $190,000, with the rocker accusing his former counsel of overcharging him for years.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, the Mötley Crüe singer is denying owing his former lawyers the amount and claims their billing was inflated.
He is in the middle of disputing the bill from the firm Howard & Howard Attorneys and their billing with the State Bar of Nevada.
Neil believes he was overbilled ‘for numerous legal services based upon his status as a celebrity. Many of the charges in Howard & Howard’s billing are questionable at best.’
He takes issue with a specific bill where he was charged $1,784.50 for 4.3 hours spent on writing a letter relating to the case.”
