Ghanaian socialite, Mona Faiz Montrage, popularly known as Hajia4Reall, has requested for a change in lawyer ahead of her trial.
This comes after she cut ties with Adam Cortez who has been her lawyer from the beginning of her prosecution.
According to documents, Hajia4real prayed the US court for the change in attorney on November 8th, 2023, and was granted on November 9th, 2023.
She has now hired the services of Ms. Eleanor Fast of ‘The Fast Law Firm PC’ to handle the case moving forward.
Reason for her request to change lawyers are however, unknown.
Before the speech trial, which was originally set for November 13th, Ms. Fast requested the court to grant her 60 days so she could thoroughly familiarise herself with the matter. She was however, granted only 45 days.
Hajia4Reall was extradited from the United Kingdom to the US for allegedly swindling over $2 million from older, single American men and women in a twisted lonely hearts scam back in May, 2023.
She pleaded not guilty to the charges, was released on $500,000 bond with GPS tracking via an ankle monitor.
