On March 12, 2019, Michael Avenatti tweeted on Twitter that his law firm was no longer the representative of porn star Stormy Daniels.
Avenatti said that as of Feb. 19 his office ceased representing Daniels for various reasons which would not be disclosed due to attorney-client privilege.
The lawyer said in a statement that the decision to terminate the porn star was not an easy one to make and came after lengthy thought, discussion, and deliberation. He also stated that they consulted with other professionals. The law firm wished all the best for Daniels.
Daniels tweeted a few minutes prior to Avenatti releasing the statement that she retained new personal legal counsel, attorney Brewster, who will now represent her in all matters.
She continued by saying Brewster will now serve as her primary legal counsel.
Daniels sued Donald Trump and his former personal fixer and lawyer Michael Cohen to void a hush agreement regarding an affair she had in 2006 with Trump. It is unclear why Avenatti is no longer representing Daniels.
