Hunter Biden's Legal Support Dwindles As Lawyer Stops Funding

In a significant development, Hollywood attorney Kevin Morris has ceased financial support for Hunter Biden after nearly five years, during which he contributed approximately $6 million to assist Hunter with his legal battles.

Hollywood lawyer Kevin Morris stopped supporting Hunter Biden financially before Biden faced crucial federal trials on gun and tax charges.

According to Daily Mail, Morris had been providing substantial financial aid but recently informed Hunter that he could no longer continue this support. This decision comes at a precarious time, with Hunter facing two imminent federal trials.

Origins of a Hollywood Lawyer's Support

Morris, who became acquainted with Hunter Biden in 2019 during Joe Biden's presidential campaign, was moved to assist because he perceived that Hunter was not receiving enough support from others. The two quickly developed a close friendship, with Morris stepping in to handle significant expenses.

Hunter Biden's rapidly escalating legal expenses mainly concerned his defense in upcoming trials. His lead defense attorney, Abbe Lowell, charges between $855 and $1,500 per hour, contributing to the high costs.

An associate of Morris explained to Politico that no one else seemed willing to help Hunter, so Kevin originally got involved.

Hunter Biden Faces Federal Trials

The immediate challenge for Hunter is his upcoming trial on gun charges, set to begin on June 3 in Delaware. This will quickly be followed by a second trial on tax charges scheduled for June 20 in California.

The costs continue to mount, as expert witnesses needed for these trials can command over $500 per hour for their expertise. Morris's cessation of financial support has further compounded this financial pressure.

The lack of funding is considered alarming given the severe potential consequences Hunter faces if found guilty in the trials.

Nickname Earned From Financial Aid

Kevin Morris's significant financial intervention included a $2.8 million contribution toward settling Hunter's tax liabilities and other legal issues, earning Morris the nickname 'sugar brother'—a term reflecting his substantial monetary support.

This nickname underscored Morris's role in providing Hunter with much-needed financial aid during intense legal scrutiny.

The extent of this support alludes to the depth of Morris's friendship and commitment toward assisting Hunter through his legal troubles.

Debates and Controversies Surround Key Figures

Controversies also surround other aspects of Hunter Biden's life, adding to the public interest in his case. Images and videos from a laptop reportedly abandoned by Hunter depict his drug use, and his financial records reveal that he spent $30,000 on escorts over five months in 2022.

Moreover, Morris himself has been seen in potentially controversial settings; last summer, he was spotted using a bong on his balcony in California, a state where recreational marijuana is legal, though it has not been confirmed what substance was being used. These issues contribute to Hunter Biden's complex public and legal persona, affecting public perception and media coverage.

Funding Cessation and Its Implications

"Now, four and a half years later, there's still no help — and now Kevin is completely tapped out. So just when Hunter is facing two criminal trials starting in a few weeks, he has no resources. It's pretty dire," an associate of Morris remarked.

The cessation of Morris's financial support is seen as a crucial turning point, possibly impacting the outcome of the legal proceedings Hunter Biden is about to face.

This turn of events leaves Hunter in a precarious financial position, raising concerns about his ability to manage the defense costs on his own without Morris’s support.


After providing around $6 million over four and a half years, Kevin Morris ceased his financial support of Hunter Biden right before Hunter faced two critical federal trials on gun and tax charges. Initially drawn to assist due to a perceived lack of support, Morris's withdrawal underscores the gravity and complexity of Hunter's legal and financial challenges.

The trials, likely to be expensive due to high attorney and expert witness fees, represent a daunting hurdle for Hunter, now without the financial shield previously offered by Morris.
