Paris Hilton Hires Top Las Vegas Lawyer

8/28/2010 11:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Paris Hilton has hired one of the premiere lawyers in Las Vegas to defend her in her cocaine possession arrest ... TMZ has learned.

Paris Hilton Lawyer
Hilton immediately snagged attorney David Chesnoff, a famous Vegas lawyer who has represented a slew of celebs including David Copperfield, Suge Knight and Vince Neil.

Chesnoff sprung Hilton from jail hours after her arrest.

We're told Chesnoff is not going to waive the white flag by any means. Sources connected with the case tell us ... it's significant Paris was released without posting any bail -- a sign that the amount of cocaine was small.

And we're told, although it's too early to tell, there might be an issue of -- whose cocaine was it anyway?  Sound familiar -- i.e., Paris' marijuana issues in South Africa.

Story developing ...

"a sign that the amount of cocaine was small."

Ha. Okay. I'm sure that's what her being released faster than the speed of light with no bail was about.

What an incredibly hollow life this woman lives. Drama for drama's sake. Waking up with constant self-made stress is an appropriate torture for this fame whore.

Does it really matter whose cocaine it was if it was in her purse??????? If it were you or I with coke in our bag, holding it for a "friend", we'd still get in trouble.

Every single person who gets busted for drugs says it isn't theirs...just like ever person in jail is innocent--even in the unlikely event it wasn't hers, it was still in her possession, it's illegal to have drugs even if they aren't yours.

You know..these celebs get away with murder..they really do! If this was a regular person, they would still be sitting in jail. They put themselves in these situations because in their mind, they have money and fame so nothing will happen. Just look at her and Lindsay...Both were in prison but got out VERY early.

Surprise she was full of crap when she said she cleaned up her act after the last time she got jailed.

Spoiled brat. I am sure she'll try desperately to find a way to avoid any responsibility for her actions like she did last time.

She needs the "Britney Spears" treatment and to have a court rule she's too retarded to be a self-dependent adult and have a conservatorship appointed.

she should have her ***** filled with cement or at least be sterilized - AFTER she goes to jail for possessing and using the cocaine which was definitely hers.

Wow, as an ex-cop I can't tell you how many times I've heard "it isn't mine", try everytime I popped some dumbass for possession. My other favorite was the answer to "how many beers have you had tonight", it was ALWAYS two, or around more like "dos", yeah more like two six packs in two hours. Paris is a drug addict joke who needs to finally spend some serious time in jail. If the coke was in this twits purse, then it is hers and she needs to pay a price for it!
