Who is Donald Trump’s lawyer, Alina Habba? What is his net worth?

In September 2021, Alina Habba became former President Trump’s lead attorney in a defamation case contributed by former “Apprentice” contestant Summer Zervos. Weeks later, she filed a $100 million lawsuit against The New York Times and Trump’s niece, Mary L Trump, on her behalf. Landing Trump as a client was quite a change for the small law firm’s managing partner Habba Madaio & Associates LLP located near Trump’s Bedminster Golf Club in New Jersey.

Prior to becoming lead counsel in these high-profile cases, and more since, Habba was suing the University of Bridgeport in Connecticut on behalf of a disgruntled student who wanted a refund for online lessons during covid and a New Jersey nursing home for a man for allegedly lax care during the pandemic. So how did she get the job and how does it pay off?

Who is Donald Trump’s lawyer, Alina Habba?

Habba has been practicing law since 2011. Before starting her own company in 2020, she was a managing partner in a medium-sized company for seven years. According to her firm’s website, she has managed to expand her business throughout the North East region. Habba Madaio & Associates LLP currently has five employees according to Datanyze with income approaching $900,000.

Her personal fortune skyrocketed when she took on Trump as a client with his annual income will reach around $210,000 in 2021. His net worth jumped between half a million and a million that year according to Popular Bio.

She has taken on more cases to represent Trump in court and now also in politics. She is now a senior advisor to MAGA Inc, her new political action committee.

Working for Trump put her in legal danger

His brash tactics in the courtroom and unwavering support for the ex-president on right-wing cable media smitten him with Trump. However, his courtroom antics and level of professionalism have drew the ire of other members of his legal team avoiding many lawsuits and growing legal problems that could extend to her.

Like several lawyers who worked for the former president before her, she could now face her own legal problems. Representing Trump in his legal battle with New York Attorney General Letitia James over valuations of his assets she swore she carefully examined “all desks, drawers, bedside tables, dressers, cupboards, etc.” in Mar-a-Lago in May 2022, prior to the FBI’s search of the property.

This could potentially make her a witness in the government’s case against Trump for withholding government documents, including classified documents found there by agents. Otherwise, she recently settled down with one of her former employees through out-of-court negotiations.

It was reported that his aggrieved ex-secretary had accused her of being a racist and callous boss. The former employee’s intimate knowledge of what Trump’s lawyer knew puts the ex-secretary in a particularly damaging position.
