Description:

You’ve seen the headlines, but do you know how Michael Avenatti, who famously represented porn star Stormy Daniels in her dispute with former President Donald Trump, came to be convicted of multiple felonies including extortion, fraud and identity theft? Experienced trial and appellate lawyer, Peter Afrasiabi details the egregious conduct that got Avenatti convicted in these cases, and reviews how the legal ethics rules apply when lawyers stand accused of making improper threats, falsifying documents, stealing client funds and failing to act in their best client’s interests.
