Despite the rumors, Baez made it clear that he did not engage in any business with the family.

The lawyer denied speaking to the couple or their son himself before adding, "Therefore, I do not represent him or anyone else related to the case."

He also said that Brian's casework makes it very unlikely for him to take them on as clients, "given its current complexities."

The family's current lawyer also confirmed that Brian's parents were in the city for business but not to talk to other attorneys.

Baez made a name for himself as the lawyer responsible for getting Anthony acquitted in the death of her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee.

NFL star Aaron Hernandez also hired the attorney for his double homicide case and his murder appeal before he tragically took his own life in prison.

Brian and Gabby left their home in Florida to go on a cross-country trip in their van together earlier in July. Gabby's parents said they had lost contact with their daughter on Aug. 25 while the two were supposedly on their way to Wyoming.

On Sept.1, Brian returned home alone, refused to speak with authorities about Gabby, and hired himself a lawyer. Ten days after his return, Gabby's parents reported their daughter missing.

Upon discovering Gabby's remains, Brian's parents issued a brief statement via their lawyer saying, "May Gabby rest in peace."

Police are continuing their search for Brian with the reports of his latest "sightings" being in Florida and Canada.
