Has Jose Baez improved his image?

February 8, 2010

Apparently he has according to some recent  juror surveys .

Ya gotta love Kathi Belich!  Our gal friday has uncovered some jury surveys from some of the cases Jose Baez has defended in the past.  She zeroed in on one case in particular in Osceola County where he questioned potential jurors in December 2008.

The comments from those possible jurors might lead one to believe that Jose Baez’ motives were not exactly pure as the driven snow, if you know what I mean.

Some of the comments:

“Ambulance chaser and rat,” “a jerk” who “should find another line of business,” “not a good lawyer” who is “full of himself” and “is out to become famous.”

Bill Shaefer, (bless his heart), kindly gives Baez the benefit of the doubt by suggesting that people were just angry with him because Caylee’s remains had just been located when that particular survey took place.  He may be right,(although according to Belich, at least half of those surveyed say they knew very little about Casey Anthony’s case) because it appears that people have lightened up on Baez in the year since those surveys were taken.  Recent questionaires show the negative comments aimed at him have dropped considerably.


So in the span of a year, Baez has improved his public persona? Maybe his ability to question jurors has improved, but  nothing I’ve personally seen or heard over the past year would lead me to feel that my initial opinion of Jose Baez was wrong.  To the contrary, I think it was dead on.

    NO, nada. My opinion of him has not changed either. The minute I laid on eyes on him I thought slimeball, sleazy. Yep, that still holds.

    He’s more than an ‘Ambulance Chaser’ and a ‘Rat’ ‘ etc….

    He screams of slime and continued finger-pointing to innocent people instead of turning to his client, CMA.

    He is one desperate so called lawyer. Spinning his web…..his image hasn’t changed imo one single bit.

    Ok, I read posting at Niecey’s about this and looked at the news article, but didn’t really go through the actual answer sheets, so I just accepted the fact that this year’s batch was better and 4 people seemed to support him.

    Now that I review the documents myself, the “supportive” comments are ones such as “Love’s Media Attention” and “Doing whatever he can to get his client out”.

    I am not sure either of those really counts as positive commentary on Jose. The rest are people stating they either don’t know him, have no opinion, or do not wish to form an opinion based solely upon the media (indicating to me they think he is garbage, but don’t want to publicly state as much – but to be fair, maybe they think he is great – {laughing so hard, afraid I will shoot soda out my nose… coughing… sputtering… hard to type when I fall out of my chair} – maybe he is a fabulous person.

    To sum it up, he has gone from a year where some people were willing to insult him in legal documents to a year where people only imply their disdain for him in legal documents – which I guess is a public relations improvement… in the same manner that failing the Bar Exam by only a little is way better than failing it by a lot… or that copping a plea to a Felony is better than being labelled a Felon by a jury…

    Mystery…not so sure, since those survey’s were done before the big ROY KRONK is a suspect episode! Had they done the survey at the end of the month in November, I believe people have a different out look on him! 🙂

    Nope! Like Humble says…do the survey after he turned on Roy Kronk.

    I would love to see him disbarred…well a gal can dream can’t she? :mrgreen:

    Hugs ♥♥♥
