Halle Berry desperately wants to move her autistic daughter Nahla to France against the advice of her longtime attorney — so she fired him last week. Halle reportedly rejected her attorney’s advice that a move to France would not be in her daughter’s best interest. But Halle is determined to move her daughter to France where doctors believe autistic children can be cured of their disorder.
French doctors practice controversial methods of treating autistic children. In France, autism is treated more like a behavioral problem than a psychological diagnosis.

The Academy award winning actress is no longer being represented by her long-time respected attorney, Neil Hersh. Berry hired Stephen Kolodny several weeks ago to be her new lawyer, he has represented Mel Gibson and Whitney Houston in the past.
“The fact is that Halle just didn’t want to listen to the advice she was being given about not pursuing a move to France with Nahla right now,” the source says. “Halle just can’t understand why it would take so long for the judge to decide, but this is a drastic move to a foreign country. Halle was told to wait six months and perhaps as a result of the parenting classes that both Gabe and Halle are taking right now, they might be able to work out a new custody agreement without having to go to court.
