“They were using some pretty shady tactics,” LaBarre said in a phone interview.
LaBarre said he wrote the bad review about Nordini and his law firm in Naperville, because of the way the firm handled his divorce from his ex-wife.
It was the ex-wife who was Nordini’s client, not LaBarre, but that hasn’t stopped LaBarre from giving his opinion.

“What do I think about him filing a lawsuit? I think he’s out of his mind,” LaBarre said.
LaBarre said he knows what Nordini wants.
“I think he wants me to take it down. … Yeah, he just wants me to take it down, I’m sure,” he said. “I guess if he wanted to have an honest conversation, I would talk to him about it.”
