Casey Anthony’s Parents Hire New Attorneys

August 26th, 2010 by Staff

ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. — The parents of accused murderer Casey Anthony have hired a new attorney.
Mark Lippman and Jennifer Craddock, from the Lippman Law Firm are now representing the Anthonys.
The announcement of their new attorneys came after the departure of their last attorney.
Earlier this month, the Anthony’s former attorney Brad Conway resigned. He said in an e-mail that Casey’s defense attorneys made false statements about him in relation to a dispute over Texas EquuSearch records.
Before Conway, Mark Nejame stopped representing the Anthonys, in part, because they wouldn’t follow his counsel while searching for Caylee.
Lippman told WFTV on Thursday that he’ll be more conservative in how he represents them. Lippman says he will not be doing a lot of national television interviews.
WFTV legal analyst Bill Sheaffer says the biggest challenge for both attorneys is controlling their clients.
“They must get their clients under control. They must get their clients to listen to their advice and as we have seen thus far, there hasn’t been a lawyer that’s been successful in doing that,” Sheaffer said.
Lippman says he represented the Anthonys during their recent home foreclosure case.
Sheaffer says regardless of whom the Anthonys have represent them, they are still witnesses in their daughters case and will testify when it goes to trial next May.
