Just a week after a 40 million dollar suit was filed against Nick Gordon for alleged emotional and physical abuse against Bobbi Kristina, it was revealed that the Georgia native has hired Jose Baez as his new lawyer.
Seriously, we needed smelling salts after hearing this news!

For all of you who were MIA in 2011, Baez successfully defended CASEY ANTHONY against charges that she murdered her 3-year-old daughter, Caylee Anthony.
Jose, who was a lawyer with low credibility and a ton of complaints against him prior to the case, skyrocketed to fame after winning the NOT GUILTY verdict.
Considering most of the public was convinced Casey would be convicted, the win secured his status as the one of the most sought out defense attorneys in America.
So, back to Nick.
If Bobbi sadly passes away, the Georgia native will most likely face murder charges as the district attorney's office is now investigating the January 31 drowning incident with greater interest. It makes sense that NG would want to hire Baez in anticipation of the charges.
Sheesh, there's a lot of ICK to go around right now! We can't say we're surprised that Nick and Jose teamed up.
So, what do YOU think of Gordon's choice for a lawyer?
