07:08 AM ET 06.26 | The Aaron Hernandez legal team appears to be growing. Noted defense attorney Jamie Sultan was seen leaving [Hernandez's] home Tuesday afternoon, which brought to light another layer of the New England Patriots tight end's legal team. Hernandez is currently being investigated for his part in the homicide of Odin Lloyd. Until this point, Michael Fee, an attorney from Ropes & Grey, was Hernandez's only known representative. But Fee told MassLive.com that the law firm of Rankin & Sultan has served as his co-counsel since the onset of this ordeal. Sultan's bio notes that he has been listed in the Best Lawyers in America since 1991 and in the Massachusetts Super Lawyers since 2004. He previously taught criminal law at Suffolk University Law School.

How much does it cost to be listed in the Best Lawyers in America since 1991?

The list is limited to the top 125,000. So, only the top 1% of lawyers out there.

They sound like a more credible bunch than the "Massachusetts Super Lawyers", although not by much.

I read somewhere last week that Hernandez was turned away from the Patriots facility.

Was this a lie, too ?

Michael Fee is a great name for an attorney.

So... it must cost a pretty penny then to be listed in the top 1%.

This really happened - the Pat's spokesperson who wouldn't make any statements did make that statement last Thursday.

Yesterday's Boston Globe had the lawyering-up story. Nothing today. Some guy did a purse-snatching the other night, but his hands were full, so he dropped a bag containing his birth certificate and left the scene. As they say, you can't make this stuff up, and you can't fix stupid.

Who needs lawyers? Anyone who doesn't want to get steamrolled by the other blood sucking lawyer. They should all be burned like witches in Salem but walking into a court room without one and you might as well walk into an airplane propeller.
I wouldn't show up for jury duty without one of the blood suckers.

The look on his face when they took him out of his house in handcuffs wasn't surprise

Now there's an interesting tactic for avoiding jury duty, although it would be an expensive one.

My favorite was a guy who walked into the court, went up to the desk and politely asked where he could check his firearm, since he knew he couldn't take it into the court. Apparantly, they had no provision for doing that, so they excused him and sent him home.

OK, now the Globe has the story. They didn't specify the charges.

I haven't had jury duty for a long time. I'm still not old enough to just say no, but I wonder if they have an unofficial cutoff at like, maybe, 60.

Sadly..... I just remembered a jury duty letter I got a few months ago...
