As Michael Avenatti floats a 2020 presidential run, court records reveal the lawyer and his companies owed millions in unpaid taxes and judgments.
questions over his finances remainand could become a sore spot on the campaign trail, as creditors pursue him and his former companies. Both the Eagan Avenatti law firm and a shuttered Seattle coffee chain, which Avenatti says he no longer owns, owe millions in unpaid taxes and judgments..
Tax liens filed in Orange County also show that Avenatti has personally owed at least $1.2 million in federal taxes on top of the corporate debts.
Civil court filings paint a picture of Avenatti as a hard-charging attorney who enjoyed the luxe lifejetting around the world to race cars with a Saudi prince and treating his wife and their friends to luxury villas in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. Yet he and his companies owed hundreds of thousands in unpaid taxes and in compensation to one former colleague, who claims Avenatti stiffed him out of millions in law-firm profits.
A Newport Beach landlord began eviction proceedings last month against Eagan Avenatti in Orange County Superior Court. The real-estate entity claims Eagan Avenatti failed to make rent for three storage spaces and a 8,371-square-foot suite, totaling more than $107,415 for the months of July and August.
On Oct. 18, the landlord filed court papers indicating Eagan Avenatti owes $213,253 in rent as of this month.
a U.S. bankruptcy court judge entered a $10-million judgment against Eagan Avenatti.
Washington State Department of Labor and Industries, said Global Baristas owes judgments and penalties and interest totaling $470,259 covering a period from April 2015 to June 2018.

Avenatti screwed up, under the bus he goes.
He is an incredible scumbag! Sort of the stereotype of the southern California shallow hustler.
Look, whatever Avenatti has accomplished in his lifetime as a sleaze bag lawyer or otherwise, I can tell you unequivocally that he has no accomplishment that is even remotely close to the kinds of things that Donald Trump has accomplished. He is not a businessman, and he knows nothing of morals/ethics, both of which Trump actually does know about.
Better get Mueller on it.
This diptard should be rewarded with a high level position in the Trump Administration after Nov 7 for all the votes hes getting for the GOP
Avenatti has energized the republican base - thats gotta count for something. I think he should stick around
Secretary of the Space Force, stationed on Uranus.
If he owes a bunch of taxes, I wonder why he is not in jail? How much does Al Sharpto owe? Al has pigment protection, but that other chump does not, but he is still walking free.
Actually I tweeted him and thanked him for his help with Kavanaugh. LOL
He was Loomered yesterday and behaved like a real pig afterward on twitter.
I look forward to his episode of American greed, especially the part where he goes to prison for 20 years.
Why is it that if I owe Uncle Sam 1.67 he finds me and fines me?
How do these guys do this kind of crap and how do they play the ‘I’m a great guy’ thing so long?
and he would be in jail if we had a AG in California. But we have a political animal with dual nationalistic loyalties in that chair instead.
In other words....he’s a typical Democrat.
If one of us little peons owed just 10% of his debt, we’d have been tossed in the clink a long time ago. Why isn’t he?
Maybe the pornstar lawyer is waiting for Soros to bail him out.
True, he’s a lowlife. But who owes the IRS more - Avenatti, Sharpton or Charles Rangel? So many democrat scammers... so little time to acknowledge them all...
