Casey Anthony
's attorney, Jose Baez, isn't concerned ONE BIT that the Florida State Bar has decided to investigate him over ethics concerns -- telling TMZ, he's used to being put through the wringer.

Jose tells us, he's "looking forward to the bar completing its investigation, so that it can be dismissed just like the 20 previous complaints."

Jose adds, "It is part of the job whenever you fight an unpopular cause."

As we previously reported -- Jose is being investigated for allegedly hiding information from the court ... after a clerical error gave Casey an unintentional break in her probation.

I think this guy thinks he is untouchable which makes you wonder what connections he has to give him that idea. He is an officer of the court and he knew there was a mistake and felt like it wasn't his job to tell the court? What has happened since during this high profile case to protect him? Mob ties? Before this case he was not able to practice law for 8 years because he owed child support. What is behind him now to make him feel untouchable?

Jose Baez should be disbarred. He is a lying POS just like his client.
He is ****y, but he is not a smart man at all.
His moto was if you can't dazzle them with brilliance, then baffle them with bullcrap!
He is right about one thing though, she shouldn't be on probation, she should be on death row!

I love how he just tosses out the comment "just like the 20 other complaints", as if it's no big deal that his integrity/ethics and code of conduct as an officer of the court are being looked at by the FL Bar Assoc.

I bet Jose's wife has had about enough of the Casey and Jose show! I know I would... So, since Casey is indigent, is she paying Jose with sexual favors? Seems like that was her currency with ALL the other men in her life!!! Also, I think the reason she hasn't contacted her parents is beacuse they NOW know for sure she killed and disposed of sweet Baby Caylee.. and her lies won't work anymore with the. Anyone agree?

Baez is vile and stomach churning..Please stop covering this jackass, his days of being a lawyer will be short lived. You can't keep getting away with unethical behavior forever.
Karma will catch up.
