Rudy Giuliani's ex-lawyers filed a lawsuit this week seeking nearly $1.4 million in unpaid legal bills from the former New York City mayor, RadarOnline.com has learned.

The lawsuit filed on Monday in Manhattan claimed that Rudy Giuliani still owes a law firm approximately $1.4 million under a retainer agreement.

Giuliani allegedly agreed to pay more than $1.5 million to the firm but has only paid $214,000 to date.

The complaint also stated that Giuliani made a token payment of $10,000 earlier this month, leaving a remaining balance of $1,360,196 still owed to the firm.

Robert Costello, a partner at the Davidoff firm and a longtime friend and lawyer to Giuliani, is also a plaintiff in the lawsuit, according to Business Insider.

Costello represented Giuliani from 2019 until this past summer and advised Giuliani on a range of legal matters – including federal investigations into the January 6 attack on the US Capitol, attempts to overturn the 2020 election in Georgia, and numerous civil lawsuits.

Meanwhile, Giuliani's financial woes have reportedly mounted in recent months.

The former NYC mayor recently claimed in court that he is tight on cash, and former President Donald Trump allegedly agreed to help Giuliani fundraise money.

Trump held a $100,000-per-person fundraiser for Giuliani at his New Jersey golf club earlier this month – although it is unclear how much money was raised.

One of Trump's political action committees also allegedly paid $340,000 to a legal records firm that Giuliani owed money to, according to records obtained by Business Insider.

Giuliani's financial troubles also resulted in repercussions on the former mayor’s already-jeopardized legal career.

In July, a panel of the Washington, D.C. Bar recommended that Giuliani's law license be revoked – a move that would potentially and permanently prevent the embattled lawyer from practicing law ever again.

As RadarOnline.com previously reported, this latest $1.4 million lawsuit filed this week only adds to Giuliani's already mounting legal problems.
