Client Dumps Divorce Lawyer on Twitter
It's bad enough being dumped by a client. But imagine being publicly jilted on Twitter in front of your client's 19,305 followers.
That's what happened to Atlanta, Ga.-based celebrity attorney Randall Kessler, who was representing Tameka Foster-Raymond in a divorce proceeding initiated by her soon-to-be ex, R&B singer Usher. As reported at this source, just days after Kessler publicly praised his client as a faithful wife and loving mother, Raymond, who goes by @TamekaRaymond on Twitter, was tweeting her buddy, celebrity lawyer @StarJonesEsq in search of a new lawyer. Foster-Raymond's tweet, which was posted publicly, read: "My lawyer = horrible. Need the name/number of a good one in Atlanta."
But Foster-Raymond apparently never intended for her tweet to be read by her thousands of followers. She subsequently posted a comment on her page with an apology. Meanwhile, no comment yet from Kessler who has now gained celebrity in his own right -- as the first (or at least among the very first) lawyer ditched on Twitter.
