Jose Baez was the lead defense counsel for Casey Anthony.

The high-powered attorney who helped get Casey Anthony acquitted of murder charges in the death of her daughter will represent the Montgomery County man under suspicion in the disappearance of his travel companion, Robyn Gardner.

Attorney Jose Baez has agreed to help Gary Giordano, who remains in jail in Aruba.

Giordano is the prime suspect in the disappearance of the 35-year-old Frederick woman.

Baez is not expected to be the lead attorney in the case, but will help with Giordano’s defense.
