Jamie Spears hires new attorney after being suspended as Britney Spears’ conservator

Vivian L. Thoreen, Jamie Spears’ previous lawyer, revealed the modification in counsel in a declaration to CNN on Thursday.

“We are proud of our work on behalf of Jamie Spears and stand by his and our actions,” Thoreen composed. “We continue to have a good relationship, and are pleased that we have been able to help Jamie find new counsel. I am confident that Jamie’s new counsel will continue to prove that he has always acted in Britney’s best interests every step of the way.”

Taking Thoreen’s location is Alex M. Weingarten, a partner in Willkie Farr & Gallagher LLP. Weingarten is a litigator, like Britney Spears’ existing lawyer, Mathew Rosengart.

Last month, Judge Brenda Cent suspended Jamie Spears as conservator of his child’s approximated $60 million dollar estate and designated a short-term replacement. Her dad had actually supervised her financial resources and handled the majority of her individual affairs considering that 2009.

Throughout the Sept. 29 hearing, Rosengart, explained the older Spears as a “cruel, toxic and abusive man.” Rosengart informed CNN at the time that he prepares to continue his “investigation into the financial and other abusive conduct.”

Jamie Spears has actually challenged the accusations of abuse.

“Mr. Spears loves his daughter Britney unconditionally. For thirteen years, he has tried to do what is in her best interests, whether as a conservator or her father,” Thoreen informed CNN in a declaration following last month’s hearing. “For anyone who has tried to help a family member dealing with mental health issues, they can appreciate the tremendous amount of daily worry and work this required. For Mr. Spears, this also meant biting his tongue and not responding to all the false, speculative, and unsubstantiated attacks on him by certain members of the public, media, or more recently, Britney’s own attorney.”

Britney Spears has actually asked the court to end her conservatorship. Judge Cent is anticipated to use up that demand on Nov. 12.
