Bill Cosby has lost another lawyer. Monique Pressley announced in court filings that she is no longer representing the actor after just over a year.
Cosby spokesman Andrew Wyatt confirmed today that the Washington D.C.-based attorney no longer is part of the much-accused Cosby Show creator’s legal team.
Before leaving his side, Pressley was the primary public face of Cosby’s defense as she frequently appeared in the media on the actor’s behalf.
Pressley is also an ordained minister, she answered the call to preach the Gospel in September of 2001, was licensed in November of 2006, and was ordained in October of 2007. In 2013, Monique launched Monique Pressley Ministries, a world-wide evangelical ministry.
Filled with the desire to not only share the message of the Gospel but also empower people by providing practical information and insight to help them live better lives, Monique has drawn from her decades of legal experience to offer legal education seminars in areas including estate planning, family law, and health.
Her commitment to living as healthy a life as possible—mind, body and spirit—led her to assist in the development of a health and wellness program for women. The three-month program provides practical health and wellness information through the teachings of experts in the field, biblical teachings related to good health and diet, and an exercise component facilitated by certified fitness trainers.
Monique and several business partners based throughout the United States and in Australia facilitate entrepreneurship seminars throughout the nation to inform and inspire those with a dream of owning their own businesses as well as provide another alternative for establishing and maintaining financial stability in uncertain economic times.
