Birkhead and His Attorney Part Ways

Larry Birkhead and his annoying attorney Debra Opri have parted ways. She will no longer serve as his lawyer in his paternity battle over Anna Nicole Smith’s child.

Debra Opri confirmed the split saying, "Larry Birkhead and I have terminated our attorney-client relationship effective immediately."

She said she felt she had to part ways with her former client because she didn't agree with Birkhead's apparent friendship with his paternity battle rival Howard K. Stern.

Opri said: "I just had enough. I can't represent a client who has a middle man by the name of Howard K. Stern. I feel very comfortable in my decision, and I wish Larry the best. But I am worried about him... I couldn't continue with the way things were going."
