"Deadbeat Donald" - has a nice ring to it!

The Trump Files: Trump's Long History of Getting Sued By His Own Lawyers

"He's a deadbeat."

During his decades in the real estate world, Donald Trump famously shortchanged many small businesses on the money he owed them.

(snip several examples...)

But Trump also tried to underpay the very same lawyers who helped him save money, and some ended up suing their former client.


It wasn't just big amounts Trump tried to get out of paying, either. Bill Scherer, a lawyer in Fort Lauderdale, had to sue Trump in 1994 to collect $5,000 in unpaid legal bills from a case Scherer won for the billionaire. The lawyer told Reuters last year he had offered Trump a low rate to "curry favor" with the mogul, but still had to sue. "He's a deadbeat," Scherer told South Florida's Sun-Sentinel newspaper. Trump told Reuters that he couldn't remember Scherer or the case at all.
