Dwyane Wade Divorce Case: Wife May Fire NINTH Lawyer In Two Years

Posted: Updated:

CHICAGO — A judge in Chicago says Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade's wife may fire her ninth divorce lawyer in slightly more than two years.

The judge warned Siohvaughn (SHOH'-vahn) Wade that she should have a new attorney by a scheduled July 19 custody trial or be ready to represent herself.

The custody trial is separate from the trial to determine dissolution of the Wades' marriage.

The trial had been set to get under way June 7. But at a hearing Friday, Cook County Circuit Judge Marya (muh-REE'-uh) Nega granted what she described as a final postponement after allowing Mrs. Wade to dismiss her most recent lawyer.

The judge put off until trial any action on contempt allegations against Mrs. Wade.
