Nick Gordon is calling on the help of a well-known lawyer in an attempt to fight off the $10 million civil lawsuit filed by Bobbi Kristina Brown's estate.

Entertainment Tonight
reports the 25-year-old and his defense attorney Joe Habachy are looking to enlist the help of Jose Baez, best known as the defense attorney in the case against Casey Anthony. In 2011, Anthony was found not guilty of the first-degree murder of her 2-year-old daughter.


Additionally, the legal team is bringing in TJ Ward, a private investigator who worked on the search for Natalee Holloway, the teenager who went missing in Aruba while on a high school graduation trip in 2005.

Gordon stands accused of physically abusing Bobbi Kristina and stealing money from her inheritance. The lawsuit cites charges of assault, battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress, unjust enrichment and conversion.
