J. Cheney Mason–Casey Anthony’s newest attorney
We were introduced to a new member of Casey Anthony’s defense team this morning at her indigency hearing. J. Cheney Mason is the newest attorney to throw his hat into this ever growing ring, and his participation may be the best thing that ever happened to Casey Anthony.
Mr. Mason began his practice in 1971 in Orlando, Florida. His areas of expertise are Criminal Defense, Marital and Family Law (Divorce Law) Entertainment Law and Trial Practice. His emphasis is Marital and Family Law and Criminal Law. He is a Board Certified Criminal Trial Lawyer, and certified by both The Florida Bar and the National Board of Trial Advocacy.
He is one of the top defense lawyers in the country and has tried 50 murder cases successfully. He is an anti-death penalty advocate.

According to WFTV analyst, Bill Sheaffer,
“This is a game changer. Cheney is a founding father of the Central Florida Criminal Defense Association. You do not come any larger than J. Cheney Mason.”
Sheaffer went on to say,
“J Cheney Mason absolutely believes he can win this case. I would liken this case to the OJ Simpson case.”
Cheney came out swinging this morning stating,
“I’ve been asked to join and I’m doing it pro bono. We’re just seeking confirmation of Ms. Anthony’s indigency and I don’t think that should be in question.”
It’s rumored that the addition of Mason may indicate that Andrea Lyon will be exiting the case soon.
