Dr. Conrad Murray -- The Britney Connection

1/8/2010 7:10 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Dr. Conrad Murray just hired a brand new Hollywood lawyer to defend him against expected criminal charges in the death of Michael Jackson -- and his new legal eagle once got Britney Spears off the hook.

Dr. Conrad Murray -- The Britney Connection
As TMZ first reported, the LAPD is preparing to present the case against Murray to the L.A. District Attorney in a matter of weeks, so it's no coincidence that Murray lawyered up with J. Michael Flanagan -- a guy who repped Britney in a 2007 hit-and-run case.

Flanagan managed to get the charge dismissed in the Britney case -- we're guessing he's going to have a tougher time with Doc Murray.

Truth, I agree if this was the only breaking news. Maybe there will be a follow up that Murray has been arrested?!?!

Too bad there is an attorney who would actually take this case. :X

I still wonder how Murray will pay for all his legal needs.
