This is no surprise. Radar Online is reporting that the attorneys Katie Holmes has hired her to represent her in her divorce from Tom Cruise are as tough as they come. This makes complete sense, especially since she wants sole custody of their daughter, Suri. Legal analyst Lisa Bloom said of attorney Allen E. Mayefsky:
“She’s making it clear she’s going to play tough. Cruise is more of a high-profile celebrity than she is, so he has a greater distance to fall if grievances are aired. Everyone has dirty laundry they don’t want aired. She’s saying play fair with me or else … Of course she would choose an experienced and tough lawyer. But the fact that she’d choose someone who’s been known to go to media in the past signals that she might have hired him for that reason.”
Tricia Walsh-Smith, who faced off against them in her divorce, said:
“…They are known for being ruthless, and they normally win. They beat the sh**t out of me. They make you out to be the biggest piece of trash there is. It took me a long time to get over it. [Katie] has really good, nasty, horrible lawyers and she should do really well.”
Well, Tom Cruise is pretty powerful in his own right, so something tells me he’ll be returning fire with fire, if necessary.
