The New York Post's Page Six gossip column is reporting that A-Rod has added criminal defense attorney Joe Tacopina to his legal team, a guy that has been called "the most hated lawyer in New York." Alex Rodriguez may not be the most hated person in his camp anymore. That strength may be vital for A-Rod's legal team if it chooses to attack the credibility of Tony Bosch, the founder of Biogenesis and one of the key cogs in the case against those suspended with ties to the now-defunct clinic. Tacopina, who relishes a high-profile case and has defended the likes of acquitted ex-NYPD officer Kenneth Morenoand and Hiram Monserrate, has joined Rodriguez’s team and is expected to make a series of media appearances including interviews with ESPN and the morning shows to defend A-Rod next week. Tacopina has represented many of NYC's most infamous criminals, including ex-NYPD officer Kenneth Moreno, and Lillo Brancato, who was accused of killing a police officer.
