New Lawyer in Brit Custody Case

2/19/2008 1:51 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned attorney Stacy Phillips will take the reigns in Britney's custody case - well, kinda sorta.

Sources say Phillips, who has repped Bobby Brown and Tori Spelling's ex, will represent the conservatorship, which is making decisions in the custody case. We're told Jamie Spears has signed off on Phillips, so the way is clear for Trope and Trope to leave the case. But there's a catch.

We're told Commish Scott Gordon wants assurance that Brit will be protected with a lawyer SHE personally chooses when the conservatorship ends.

Phillips is in court right now and there will be big developments today.

Stay tuned ...

Now we hear Kfed doesnt desire 100 percent custody.I would bet my life he isn't willing to surrender any of the "support" payments. And now we have ANOTHER lawyer trying to get his piece of the gravy train.

My wish for Brittany is that paperatzi LEAVE HER ALONE!!!! It really isn't any of our business as to what she does on a daily basis, and I feel that all the hype the paps put out there pretty much looking like FRENZIED BEINGS...and IDIOTS!!!
I really have a lot of empathy for her!!

TO BRITTANY: Keep your head up, and just for now....concentrate on your children and getting to a place where you are feeling strong again!! Much Love to you!
