Echo Park —  Is Stormy Daniels’ lawyer now working out of an Echo Park office building? Apparently so, according to Josh Barro and Ken White of KCRW’s Left Right and Center program.

In a recent show, Barro notes that a recent court filing by stripper and porn star Stormy Daniels lists her lawyer, Michael Avenatti, as having an office at 1910 Sunset Boulevard in Echo Park. That means that Avenatti, whose law firm was evicted from its ocean-view offices in Newport Beach last year, is working out of the neighborhood’s tallest structure — the 10-story Citibank Building.

While the building is imposing by Echo Park standards, White, who said he has been inside the building, was not impressed, calling it “modest” and reflecting a “different look” for Avenatti.

“It’s not the ostentatiously, upscale, Look-At-Me-I’m-A-Big-Lawyer type of address,” White said. “It’s not the Sunset Boulevard of Hollywood dreams.”

Avenatti may not have landed on the boulevard of dreams, but at least he’s next to the Brite Spot.
