Local attorney representing baby Lisa's family well-known in area

KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

From what KCTV5 crews have been able to tell, the family of baby Lisa has spent the day talking to their local attorney.  A woman was seen dropping Deborah Bradley off at the family home on North Waldron and then taking Jeremy Irwin to the McCallister law offices near the Plaza. 

Cyndy Short, a well known defense attorney, was tapped by Joe Tacopina to "handle the matter together."  Earlier in the week, Tacopina acknowledged a local attorney would be involved since he's out of New York but he wouldn't say who.  

Short has defended several high profile clients, including Ted White who won a multi-million dollar settlement against the city of Lee's Summit after being falsely accused of molesting his step-daughter and spending years in prison.  White's was a huge case that further bolstered Short's reputation. 

Her bio page on The McCallister Law Firm website detailed a career highlight that packs another punch.

"A jury angered by the treatment of her client acquitted him and demanded an apology from the police and prosecutors for their wrongdoing," said the bio.

KCTV5's Amy Anderson tried to get in touch with Short on Wednesday afternoon but hadn't heard back from her as of news time.
