Britney Spears is moving ahead in her attempt to end her conservatorship. The pop star signed a document referring to her comments in court on June 23rd where she requested to seek new counsel and remove her father as a conservator of her estate.
Spears named Greenberg, Traurig, LLP as her preferred counsel, specifically, powerful lawyer and former federal prosecutor Mathew Rosengart.
Rosengart has represented many big names such as Steven Spielberg, Sean Penn, Ben and Casey Affleck, Eddie Vedder, and Soledad O’Brien.
Now that her court-appointed lawyer, Sam Ingham, resigned last week, Britney is hoping Rosengart will take her case and the court will allow him to represent her.
Britney faces an uphill battle in two areas, one, her request for the conservatorship to end without a medical evaluation, several doctors and therapists have said that Britney has a mental disorder that could affect her safety if left to go about life alone. And two, she can’t enter into a contract without Jamie’s consent.
