Timeline of Jose Baez


Baez was working with Aaron Hernandez to appeal his conviction for the murder of Odin Lloyd up until Hernandez’s apparent suicide on April 19, 2017. Baez has stated publicly that he does not believe that Hernandez committed suicide and is “determined to find the truth surrounding his untimely death” as “Aaron was looking forward to an opportunity for a second chance to prove his innocence.”

On September 21, 2017, Baez announced Aaron Hernandez was diagnosed with chronic traumatic encephalopathy by Dr. Ann McKee of Boston University, and that he had filed a federal lawsuit, on behalf of Hernandez’ daughter, against the National Football League and the New England Patriots, seeking unspecified damages for loss of parental support. The suit alleges the league and team were aware of the dangers of repeated head injuries and refused to disclose these to Hernandez.

In June 2017, Benjamin Shaw was on vacation in Shreveport, Louisiana, when he walked into a bar called the Rockin Rodeo during which time he got into a verbal altercation which eventually moved outside to the parking lot. The unarmed victim, Zechariah Casagranda, was stabbed 10 times. During the trial Baez was able to demonstrate that Casagranda, a military man, in a military town, was the initial aggressor and was the one who attacked Shaw. Using self-defense as the defense in the case, Shaw was found not guilty.


In October 2013, Baez was hired to defend the 12‑year-old suspect arrested in connection with the death of 12‑year-old Rebecca Sedwick, whose mother had claimed was bullied to the point where she committed suicide by jumping to her death from a silo in a cement factory. The case made national news when Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd made the first arrest in the country for cyberbullying, and gave interviews on all major media shows including the Today Show and Good Morning America. Baez criticized Sheriff Judd for releasing the juveniles’ names and photographs, setting off a battle between the sheriff and defense attorney. Sheriff Judd told the media that Baez, “a flashy lawyer from out of town, should go work out a plea deal.” In the end, all charges against his client were dropped. After winning the case, Baez told Sheriff Judd that “He should get a lawyer and a darn good one because he’s gonna need it,” indicating that his client may sue the Sheriff. No known further legal action occurred.


Baez came to significant national attention when he took on the case of Casey Anthony. Time Magazine dubbed it “the Social Media Trial of the Century”. Anthony was acquitted of the murder of her daughter, Caylee, after a trial that lasted six weeks. In a press conference on the day of the verdict, Baez said, “While we’re happy for Casey, there are no winners in this case. Caylee has passed on far, far too soon, and what my driving force has been for the last three years has been always to make sure that there has been justice for Caylee and Casey because Casey did not murder Caylee. It’s that simple.” He added, “And today our system of justice has not dishonored her memory by a false conviction.” Baez was featured on every major news network and show across the country. Baez authored a book with Peter Golenbock about the Anthony Case, Presumed Guilty, which was published on July 3, 2012 and became a New York Times Best Seller. Fox News Channel commentator Geraldo Rivera referred to Baez as “Juanie Cochran.”

In 2012, George Zimmerman was arrested in the shooting death of 17‑year‑old Trayvon Martin. After jail calls that were released where George Zimmerman discussed Baez, Zimmerman’s friend Frank Taaffe disclosed to HLN that a “consortium” wanted to hire Baez to represent George Zimmerman. Zimmerman chose Mark O’Mara. Ultimately, Baez ended up representing a lead detective in the case, Chris Serino.

Baez defended Aaron Hernandez on charges related to a 2012 Boston double homicide of Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado in a drive-by shooting in Boston’s South End on July 16, 2012. On April 14, 2017, a jury cleared Hernandez of committing the murders. Hernandez was already serving a life term without parole for the Odin Lloyd killing. Five days after the not guilty verdict, Hernandez committed suicide by hanging himself in his prison cell.


After representing Anthony, Baez was brought on to assist attorney Chris Lejuez in representing millionaire businessman Gary Giordano in Aruba. Giordano was detained in KIA Prison for 116 days in connection with the disappearance of Robyn Gardner. Aruba’s High Court released Gary Giordano on November 28, 2011. No charges were ever filed against Gary Giordano. Baez and Lejuez successfully defended an appeal filed by Aruba’s Chief Prosecutor, Taco Stein.


After graduating from law school in 1997, Baez was denied admission to the Florida Bar due to financial irresponsibility. Unable to practice as an attorney, he worked instead as an intern at the Miami Dade Public Defender’s office and owned several companies. In 2005, the Florida Board of Bar Examiners admitted Baez after he had demonstrated that he had rehabilitated himself.


After leaving the Navy in 1989, Baez attended Miami-Dade Community College, then transferred to Florida State University where he earned a BA. He earned his Juris Doctor degree from St. Thomas University School of Law in 1997.


Baez was born to Puerto Rican parents in Manhattan, N.Y., and raised in the Bronx, New York, and South Florida with his three sisters by his single mother. He attended Homestead High School in Florida, but dropped out in the ninth grade. He married and became a father at age 17. After earning his General Equivalency Diploma (GED), he joined the U.S. Navy in 1986. According to his resume, he spent three years assigned in connection with NATO at Norfolk, Virginia, trained as an intelligence analyst, and held a Top Secret security clearance.
