Lawyer is sued over pounds 5k rent bill.

A LAWYER who raked in more than pounds 170,000 in legal aid fees is being sued for unpaid rent.

Landlords claim Brian Gallen, 57, owes almost pounds 5000 for his offices in Kimarnock, just yards from the town's sheriff court.

Armour Construction Consultants last week lodged a writ at the court, where Gallen normally works, for pounds 4891.16 in unpaid rent.

The lawyer asked court officials to tip him off when the action was launched.

A source said: "Brian asked the office workers to inform him when the writ was lodged but he didn't seem too bothered when they told him."

Mercedes-driving Gallen, who lives in Glasgow's plush Dumbreck area, was not available for comment.
