The ex-wife of “Law & Order” producer Dick Wolf is suing her former accountants, just as crime novelist Patricia Cornwell won a $51 million verdict against the same firm.

Christine M. Wolf claims Anchin, Black and Anchin LLP overbilled her $290,000 for balancing her checkbook, and botched the lease on a Greenwich, Conn., rental, according to the $6 million suit.

“[Evan] Snapper, the Anchin partner at the heart of the Cornwell Action, is the same Anchin partner primarily responsible for Wolf’s accounts and her loses,” the Manhattan Supreme court filing states.

When she fired Snapper in 2010, Christine Wolf allegedly discovered he’d “secretly” raised his fees from $7,000 to $11,000 per month.

Christine Wolf, Dick Wolf’s second wife, says she moved to the Round Hill Road residence in 2005 to be closer to her son’s school.

Snapper allegedly failed to tell her the lease was only for one year and did not get approval from the landlord for extensive renovations she made to the home.

Dick Wolf, 66, started his television career as a staff writer on “Hill Street Blues” and later became supervising producer on “Miami Vice.” But it is for “Law & Order” that Wolf is best known. The NBC series ran from 1990 to 2010, tying “Gunsmoke” as the longest running dramatic series on TV.
