Attorneys All Around
According to TMZ, the celebrity-watching website, Arnold Schwarzenegger is stepping up to the plate and has hired a high-powered divorce attorney as his imminent divorce looms on the horizon. TMZ reports that Arnold has hired the well-known celebrity divorce attorney Robert Kaufman to represent him in the split from his estranged wife Maria Shriver.
According to TMZ, people from Arnold’s camp have already approached Shriver’s attorney Laura Wasser about moving forward with negotiations in their divorce. Arnold’s new attorney Robert Kaufman has represented other celebrities in the past including Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon and Jessica Simpson during their breakups, and Kaufman is highly regarded in Hollywood for his ability to keep the details of his celebrity client’s divorce battles out of the press.
Reports appeared in the press that Maria Shriver has already retained the services of Laura Wasser before revelations that the former California governor had fathered a love child with his household staffer Mildred Patricia Baena hit the tabloids. Wasser is a high-power Hollywood divorce attorney in her own right with a list of past celebrity clients that includes Robyn Gibson, Kate Walsh, Britney Spears, Angelina Jolie, and Kiefer Sutherland. Wasser is also highly regarded for maintaining a low profile for her high-profile clients. It looks like the next stop for the Terminator Express will definitely be a California divorce courtroom.
