    Please post any information you can uncover on Casey's attorney, Jose Baez, here. Past cases, bar exams, connections, anything. He is a major player and not a lot of information has been posted regarding his history.

    From what I have gathered so far from WS (and correct me if I'm wrong), Casey hired him herself, apparently from the suggestion of fellow inmates. The family of Casey is not paying him. It has not been disclosed how is getting compensated (and as one sleuther stated "follow the money"). He has a private practice in Kissimmee, and wesh.com reported that he represented a few high profile criminal defense cases in the FL area.

    I stated earlier that if you go to Casey's facebook, click on JP Chitt, go through his friends, find R. Morales, look at his friends. 3 Baez kids. I do not know if that is a common last name there, but I am betting this is tied to Jose and Casey's affiliation.

    That may be somewhere for someone to start. Might be the link to why he is there. I couldn't find his specialty on his website, which leads me to believe that he is new and has not established himself. Then he got bashed on national tv and probably is running with his tail between his legs now (hence the motion to withdraw and new co-counsel).

    Definitely worth exploring! I wish I could figure out facebook...but I can't, so I don't have an account, and even when I did, I couldn't see anyone's info. unless I was linked to them. It was all very confusing. Someone made up a dummy myspace account, maybe we could do that with facebook.

    St. Thomas is NOT a very good school. When I applied to law school in 2005, St. Thomas was a Tier 4 school. IIRC, it was provisionally accredited. I have an email into the dean about the ABA status. I will post the response when I get it.

    St. Thomas must be ABA accredited because he was allowed to sit for the bar exam. I know in my state when I was sitting for the bar you had to have a JD from an ABA accredited school. As many states have reciprocity now I am assuming that I that most states require a JD from ABA accredited schools.

    That said almost anyone can get in to at least a second tier school, so I am assuming this must be one of those "law schools" that send you offers of full ride scholarships when you take the LSAT.

    Casey supposedly got Baez's name from fellow inmates at the jail, right? I'd be curious to know if that is true. How many "clients" Baez has in that jail right now. (or at the time casey got there)

    the stories are obvious lies.
    The people are not anywhere on earth.

    The stealing & partying well that speaks for itself.

    He really would be helping her if he had her plead guilty and work out a deal.
    After all this is Caylee's Birthday the truth would be a great gift to this poor child...

    totally agreed ont he video...wow...and what about his quote..." You never get a second chance at a first impression. You may also never get a second chance to preserve your freedom if faced with criminal charges."

    So in other words, if you really screw up...CALL ME

    Was anyone else kind of offended by the way he commented on the cadaver dogs?
    "They dug in the back yard for two days and found nothing, at best this dog is 1 for 2, at worst this dog is 0 for 2, and quite frankly I don’t like these odds."
    Seems rather callous to be discussing the possibility of Caylee's death and burial this way. Not to mention the fact that dogs could hit that scent if the body was EVER there. I don't know seems like a conversation about baseball or something, not something as serious as a little girl's life. Guess this couldve made it to the rant thread huh? Sorry!:rolleyes:

    Does anyone know if Baez is court appointed? If not, who is paying him? Parents have no money and neither does Casey.
    :confused:

    is he court appointed public defense attorney or is someone paying him?
    I recall Cindy commenting how Casey "had picked him" from a list. But his website says nothing about public defense

    I don't think he's court appointed.

    I believe Casey chose him.

    He's probably representing Casey pro bono, for the massive publicity this case is getting.

    yea, I know Casey picked him but I don't know that this means he is getting payment. Probono- Doubt it.

    I forgot that I posted on this thread before WS put me on restriction for a week.

    I got a response from the Dean at St. Thomas (where Baez graduated). They have been fully accredited since '96. This means that they were only provisionally accredited when Baez graduated. Being provisionally accredited means the school was being watched closely to see if they could meet the strict standards of the ABA. Provisionally accredited grads can sit for the bar.

    Now, the perplexing things is how Baez says that he worked with the Public Defenders office since his 2nd yr in law school and they won all their cases.

    If a student is registered with the ABA under student status, they are allowed to practice along side an attorney during their last yr of school. NOW, if he went on full time with the PD office after graduation, he had to have been clerking or doing some menial chore. He was NOT practicing on his own since he did not pass the bar until 2004 or 2005.

    I'm betting Baez took the case pro-bono up to a certain point. This would account for all the "help" he is getting now that he made himself look like an idiot on NG. The new guy is a well known atty and is likely jumping in pro-bono for the media coverage.

    I know that as a new attorney, I would NOT get involved in this case because this is one for seasoned attorneys, not newbies. Baez looks like he is seeking co-counsel because he doesn't have the experience to handle this caliber of case. JMO.

    Has he allowed LE access to his client yet? This is what I personally care about....this man was chosen because he pled a mother who murdered her child down to manslaughter. This makes him a good choice for this case IMO.

    I don't know about that. It's not often when a high profile case like this comes along and there are lawyers that will jump on it just for the free publicity. That's not saying he won't do his best to represent her, just that he may be willing to do it for free.
