Pro Se Spouse Ordered to Pay Fees for Divorce Trial
In an interview, Homayoon said he only billed his client for court appearances and did not charge for phone calls or Tope's "constant stream of emails" that he otherwise would have billed.
"The guy was unrelenting," he added. "I've tried cases with pro se [litigants] but never to this level. It wasn't a profitable case for me. I didn't make anything at the end of the day."
However, he said his client wouldn't have been represented if he had charged his normal rates.
"It was gratifying what the judge said. He showed some appreciation," Homayoon said. "It may not have been financially fulfilling, but it was worth it."
