Donald Trump is claiming the Manhattan law firm that represented him in a lawsuit against an overcharging golf course contractor has, in turn, overcharged him. Trump has filed a legal malpractice suit against Morrison Cohen, claiming the firm treated him like a "cash cow" and performed unnecessary work to generate higher bills. "I have dealt with a lot of lawyers and paid a lot of legal fees," Trump said in an interview Monday. "I have a Ph.D. in legal fees. I know when fees are fair and when they are not."
