Now that enough time has passed from the launch of the hit Netflix Inventing Anna, people have been wondering what’s become of Anna Sorokin a.k.a. Anna Delvey a.k.a. the fake heiress who stole a bunch of rich people’s money. Has she finally seen the folly of her ways and become an upstanding citizen? I’m sorry to inform you that she has surely not. After being sentenced for stealing from the rich (the greatest crime you can commit in America), Anna has been holed up in various prisons since 2019. When you’re incarcerated, you’ve got a lot of time on your hands. Some inmates take up reading or exercise. But Anna? She’s started her own law firm! I guess being embroiled in a high-profile court case is enough experience for becoming an attorney!
In case you missed the story of Anna (there have been a LOT of grifter stories lately), she faked being a German heiress and managed to weasel her way into the hearts and wallets of the New York elite. Anna scammed millions of dollars from multiple people and establishments which clearly did not sit well with them. She was eventually caught and sentenced to four to twelve years in prison. And as is customary in the US, the insane story caught the attention of Netflix execs and they paid Anna $320,000 for the rights to produce the Inventing Anna miniseries (see, crime DOES pay!). She eventually was released from custody but was later arrested for overstaying her visa and is currently in a detention center in New York. Now that her ability to stay in the fanciest hotels is gone, she had to find a new hobby. So why not become a lawyer? via The Daily Mail:
Despite having no legal training, and still being held at a correctional facility, Delvey announced her new law firm Delvey & Daughters – ‘Double D’ for short – in a public statement on Thursday.
The firm is payable through Dogecoin and can be reached through 1-800-BETTER-CALL-ANNA, a play on the Breaking Bad spinoff series Better Call Saul which chronicles a crooked attorney.
While Delvey’s law firm announcement is clearly as fake as her German heiress claims, it appears to be a dig at her legal representation.
In her statement, she admits that ‘jail is not a great look for a lawyer but… it merely means I have more time to focus on solving my clients’ issues as opposed to waiting time on pointless dinners and small talk.’
In fact, her current attorney, Manny Arora, seemed stunned and a little frustrated by the revelation when reached by DailyMail.com.
She told us that she had not been informed of Delvey’s apparent new career ambitions and that it was ‘impossible’ for her to found a law firm.
Here’s Anna’s law firm announcement:

Despite everything she’s gone through, Anna is still the pettiest. I guess she never learned the word “humble” in German, English, or Russian! Releasing a statement that features a breast pun and a meme coin is definitely not the correct way to keep the public and your attorney on side. If I was her lawyer, I’d have booked the earliest Spirit Airlines flight to Frankfurt, packed her bags, and prepared my best “Auf Wiedersehen, bitch!” line for when I dropped her off at the airport. Now THAT’S first-class service!
