Attorney Kim Picazio says she first came to Putnam County this week to help Crystal Sheffield, Haleigh Cummings' mother, handle the media.
"I believe they called me so the family could have someone to turn to for advice on who they should talk to. They didn't know who to trust," Picazio explained.
Picazio has a law firm in Ft. Lauderdale and works mostly family law cases.
After working on the Haleigh Cummings case for only a few days, Picazio said people from all over Putnam county have called her and her staff with concerns about the safety and home life inside Haleigh's home while Haleigh was there and for her little brother now.
Picazio also says Sheffield is so upset about Haleigh that she is seeking counseling for her client.
"She is in a very bad state," Picazio said. "Crystal Sheffield would definitely not be in the mood right now to be getting married or attending any honeymoon."
Picazio said Sheffield has little money and she is taking the case pro bono.
She also said that Sheffield and her mother have been forced to leave the empty home in Putnam County that someone had generously provided to them for the past few weeks. Sheffield has lived in Baker County.
Picazio said she was hoping to help Sheffield find a place to stay in Putnam County so that she could remain close to the investigation.
