Marty Singer has been named one of Los Angeles’ top lawyers year after year and now he’s just issued a stern warning to both Jon Gosselin and his lawyer Mark Heller.
Singer, representing Kate Gosselin, not only has Jon in his sights, but is prepared to carry the fight to his lawyer in a case where Jon has defied a court order in the acrimonious divorce.
RadarOnline.com broke the story early Sunday that Jon removed hundreds of thousands of dollars from a joint account with Kate last week, despite a court order prohibiting such action.
Now, Singer tells RadarOnline.com in an exclusive interview: “If the money is not immediately returned, we will be looking into potential claims against Mr. Heller if he had any involvement with the violation of the court order.
Kate hired Lavely & Singer after discovering Jon secretly pulled out $200,000 from their bank account, leaving her with only $1,000. That action violated a court order and Singer sent Jon's lawyer a letter via email but never heard back. Meanwhile, Jon and his lawyer appeared on Larry King Live and Jon told the national TV audience he wanted to put the brakes on his divorce and establish a better relationship with Kate.
In his letter to Heller, Singer wrote: "My client's consent was never requested, let alone given for your client's unilateral withdrawal of hundreds of thousands of dollars.......We demand the immediate return to the Account of all monies improperly withdrawn by your client. If you and your client fail to comply with this demand, you do so at your peril."
As RadarOnline.com reported earlier Sunday, another one of Kate’s lawyers will be going to court in Pennsylvania on Monday seeking to recover the funds. The lawyer may also ask that Jon be held in contempt.
