Caylee Anthony: Anthony Family Attorney Mark NeJame Quits Case … Only Casey Anthony Knows the Truth About What Happened
In the end even Anthony attorney Mark NeJame cannot put up with his clients uncontrollable actions. I do not think that any one could blame NeJame for severing ties with the Anthony’s. In all honesty it really does not come as a surprise that NeJame quits case. With all the antics and out of control clients, one wonders what took him so long?
“I had come to a personal opinion and theory for quite some time whether Caylee was still with us or not. However, my opinion was only one like any other … an opinion. The only person without an opinion though is Casey Anthony as only she knows the truth. (Mark NeJame)
Mark NeJame, the attorney who represented the parents of indicted tot mom Casey Anthony has quit the case. It appears that NeJame is at his wits end as well with the Anthony’s and their insistence on limiting the searches to only looking for a live Caylee Anthony. Is it any wonder with the insanity that this case has taken on that NeJame no longer wishes to represent Cindy and George Anthony?
Their granddaughter, 3 year old Caylee Anthony, has been missing since June 9, 2008. However, despite all of the evidence that points in the direction that Caylee is dead, the Anthony’s continue down the path of dealing with Kid Finders and only searching for a live Caylee. It has even recently been revealed that George Anthony looks to become the Kid Finders spokesperson.
At the group’s headquarters Wednesday, Anthony said the organization has been helpful to his family since the day after Caylee was reported missing. Anthony said he is more than willing to become a spokesman for the group. He has no doubts about their motives or sincerity.
With judgments and actions like this from his clients, is it any wonder that Attorney Mark NeJame has thrown his hands up in the air and parted ways with the Anthonys. Quitting the case the day before the Anthony’s and Kid Finders plan to hold a press conference to explain why they think Caylee is alive. Could it possibly be that NeJame wants to no longer be associated with such ridiculous antics? Now the Anthony’s are no longer being advised by a lawyer who was trying to be the voice of reason, but instead are influenced by Kid Finders, a non-profit that has been reported has never found a kid and with a questionable past.
The lawyer for the grandparents of a missing Florida toddler quit the job Thursday, saying only the little girl’s imprisoned mother knows the truth about what happened.
Mark NeJame indicated in a statement that he was off the case because of disagreements with George and Cindy Anthony. Their daughter Casey Anthony is jailed on first-degree murder charges in the presumed death of her daughter, 3-year-old Caylee.
Nejame resigned on Thursday stating that he didn’t have the control over the case or his clients that he needed to be effective. Attorney Mark NeJame’s statement read as follows:
“Unfortunately, I have made the decision that it is best not to continue my representation of George and Cindy Anthony.
“George and Cindy have a belief that their beloved granddaughter, Caylee, is still alive. Tips and leads continue to come in. I believe strongly that they should have every right to maintain their hope and faith that one of these “sightings” will miraculously be the one that brings Caylee home to them. What parent or grandparent would surrender such hope?
“Who is one person to tell another parent or grandparent when it is time for them to abandon their faith? When does a stranger have the right to judge another who has endured such a loss? The attacks made against them by some are deplorable.
“Let them be to do what they feel they must to find their beloved granddaughter, Caylee. Knowing this case as well as probably anyone on earth, there is no doubt that they do not know where Caylee is. Allow them to walk their own path.
“I only agreed to represent George and Cindy Anthony, so long as there were no restrictions placed on me whatsoever as to finding Caylee, regardless of where this might lead. Quite simply, this meant that I could do whatever I needed to find Caylee whether she was alive or not. It impressed me that George and Cindy, both believing that Caylee was still with us, had an overriding and primary concern in finding Caylee, even if the result was not as they would hope. The other condition I required was that I would have absolutely nothing to do with representing Casey or assisting in her legal defense.
“Abundant efforts have been made towards finding Caylee. I have worked with so many involved in this matter towards the goal of finding this dear, missing child who has captured the hearts of so many. Some ignorant and judgmental members of the public though have made hateful and inaccurate accusations against me and others, when they had no idea whatsoever what was really going on. As my new, good friend, Tim Miller from Equusearch, tells me ‘everybody associated with this case gets body slammed.’ However, like Tim, when you know in your heart that you’re doing the right thing, you just move forward knowing that right will ultimately win out. Some have falsely accused me and some others of being in this for the money. If they only knew how utterly wrong and misguided they are.
“I had come to a personal opinion and theory for quite some time whether Caylee was still with us or not. However, my opinion was only one like any other … an opinion. The only person without an opinion though is Casey Anthony as only she knows the truth.
“I believe that the singular person out of the 6 billion people in the world who holds the key to finding Caylee is her mother, Casey Anthony. Although I was quite successful in resolving a multitude of matters, I am unable to go further to help George and Cindy find Caylee in my current role. I can only provide my best advice and must respect any client’s prerogative to do what they deem is best, whether they choose to follow my guidance or not. However, there is little value or use I can provide to any client if they choose to act and comment at will.
“As someone who has learned and knows the inner workings and details of the case and its various characters intimately, the rampant sensationalism and unfounded accusations must stop. Allow Cindy and George Anthony the respect and decency of dealing with their hope and efforts to find their missing and beloved Caylee as they need to. Allow those with differing opinions on finding and searching for Caylee, whether she is with us or not, to do their jobs without interruption. Finally, the judicial system is in play and justice will be best served by mindless meddlers staying out of something they know little of. There are many wonderful people involved in efforts to find Caylee and there are, unfortunately, many who are exploiting this child. Sadly, most in the public are clueless about who is doing what and what is really going on. The negative actions of some are only counterproductive and hurtful to the cause of those many good people who are doing so much to do something positive with this most sad and tragic situation.
“There should only be one goal and that is to find Caylee Marie Anthony.”
