Ghislaine Maxwell, who helped Jeffrey Epstein lure, trap, and beguile young girls into sexual servitude, is being sued by her attorneys for failing to pay over a million dollars in legal expenses accrued since 2015, according to recent court records.
The discovery of the unpaid legal expenses coincides with the inexplicable death of another Epstein acquaintance, which is breaking news.
Maxwell owes $878,302 and counting to the law firm Haddon, Morgan, and Foreman, P.C., according to a lawsuit filed Tuesday in Denver federal court.
“Lawyers Jeffrey Pagliuca and Laura Menninger also represented Maxwell at her criminal trial, with the latter delivering closing arguments to the jury. Their firm is also suing her brother, Kevin Maxwell, and estranged husband, Scott Borgerson, who they accuse of using smoke and mirrors to obscure her fortune,” according to The Daily News.
Maxwell referred bill collectors to her brother Kevin, who managed her funds when she was incarcerated in the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn in 2020 following her arrest.
According to freshly filed court filings, Kevin gave her attorneys a “perpetual” retainer of $100,000 and then continuously delayed payments, ignored communications, and promised wire transfers that never materialized.
“According to the lawsuit, Kevin Maxwell requested if he might “humbly implore” that his sister’s counsel not forsake her in the months leading up to her trial in Manhattan Federal Court in August 2021.
According to the court documents, he stated that the unpaid debt was not his sister’s responsibility. In the months leading up to Maxwell’s bankruptcy, he attributed the delay to a group of limited liability corporations and used her riches to purchase condominiums and estates in Massachusetts and New Hampshire, according to The Daily News.
A portion of the lawsuit states, “Mr. Maxwell spent the weeks and days leading up to trial convincing [the company] that he was close to arranging financing on Ms. Maxwell’s properties that would result in more than enough cash to satisfy the sum owing.”
According to Maxwell’s attorneys, her brother and estranged husband are in cahoots and Borgerson purchased the houses with her money to shield them from creditors. According to the complaint, Borgerson attempted to sell two of the houses for tens of millions of dollars following his wife’s sentence. He was absent at her trial.
