Phaedra Parks Lawyers Up; Embattled Celebrity Attorney Retains 2 Powerhouse Criminal Attorneys

According to a well-connected source, local attorney Phaedra Parks has lawyered up, one day after a VIBE magazine ran an exclusive exposing Phaedra’s alleged criminal history.

According to my source, Phaedra has retained the services of B.J. Bernstein and Lin Wood, two of the top defense attorneys in Atlanta.

Both attorneys are considered among the best in their fields. Most of you are familiar with Bernstein, who filed a sexual misconduct suit against embattled Pastor Bishop Eddie Long in 2010. Wood is currently representing disgraced former presidential candidate Herman Cain, who is now a radio host on WSB in Atlanta.

According to my source, Phaedra, who is a cast member on ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta,’ must think she’s in hot water if she hired both Bernstein and Wood, who don’t come cheap!

She could have just as easily hired B.J. Bernstein by herself, said my source, but Phaedra obviously thinks her situation is dire if she hired two of the top criminal attorneys in the country.

Phaedra’s accuser, Angela Stanton, told VIBE that she, along with Phaedra, her husband Apollo Nida, and another man, were involved in a car theft ring. Stanton claimed Phaedra was the ringleader, who sent Stanton and Apollo into car dealerships to copy down VIN numbers of expensive luxury vehicles.

In a video posted on Vibe.com, Stanton said Phaedra created fake registration cards to match the stolen vehicles. Stanton then presented the VIN numbers and the fake registration cards to other dealerships to have new keys cut.

The vehicles were later stolen by simply driving the vehicles off the car lot using the new keys. Phaedra has not made a statement, but retaining Bernstein and Wood is statement enough.

She must be guilty.

This story is developing…

Stanton also made a video in 2010 describing how she was sexually abused because of Eddie Long. Watch that video below.

    @Yall
    Don’t know how they will be prove it but she best hope she do not get on Apollo’s bad side and since Apollo already went to jail for his blue collar crime I would presume they could start there – I think it can be proven the state will make an example of her and she will pay!

    Phaedra probably lawyered up to hurry and fix this and then will sue Angela for defamation and the “consideration” will be “lost financial gain” or some ish :lol:

    This story is old, and no one cared. Vibe is so desperate they re blog it months later c’mon.
    Why would they get married so he can’t testify? Apollo did his time already, its been years since this passed.

  28. 28
    LaTechGrad02 says:

    I thought Apollo had already served his time when he met Phaedra so this would be something totally different, if Angela is telling the truth. People make stuff up and implicate people with money all of the time. The threat of going to jail isn’t that big of a deal for some people.

    Guilty by the media…only in America. Let’s see how this plays out. I’m not sure if I believe this lady, she has a lot to gain (whether she’s being truthful or not). :violin: In her eddie long video, she’s crying a river about her hard life….terrible that she was molested though.

    My thoughts are with baby Adien, getting caught up in a mess b/c of his two parents.

    Well she’s innocent till proven guilty. I will say taking money from a drug dealer on RHOA was very unprofessional. I gave her the side eye ever since. This woman that is snitching on her must have nothing to lose since she was involved too. Hiring top lawyers isn’t a good look either. If she was innocent, than she could of put out a statement then sued for defamation of character.

    Adair says:

    This is interesting!! As someone mentioned, the fact that she hired criminal attorneys speaks volumes! I wonder if she got them because they want to “question”/interrogate her. If that’s the case, then she was right to hire them because every body know you need an attorney when being “questioned.” Glad she didn’t try to represent herself!

    Stanton must going to cut a deal. Depending on the charge(s) of her prior conviction, she can be charged with different ones here and get another conviction.

    Can’t wait to see how this unfolds!

    3halos says:

    Wait a min…if Stanton is the lady in the above video, she said that she was molested by someone but not her mother/father. She merely used Eddie as an example of how people will disbelieve that someone is a molester b/c her best friend was being molested by her dad and she didn’t believe it until she saw it for herself. Unless I missed another part of the video, she didn’t say anything about “describing how she was sexually abused because of Eddie Long”….

    *********************************

    that broad was on tv taking a stack from a obvious drug dealer and laughing about fooling the judge. then she got a secretary who was implicated in a murder and she herself married a “white collar” criminal. is obviously very comfortable with the life.

    when i look at phaedra, i see a broad who would do anything for an extra buck if she thinks she can get away with it.
