Makes sense that Jon would select Vidas considering the father of eight recently tweeted, "Kate, her attorneys and I are moving forward to work out things privately and amicably."

Anthony List, Jon's former attorney, is speaking out about getting fired telling X17online exclusively, "I've known Jon since he was born because his father and I were friends. I didn't sense that there was any disconnect between the two of us. I felt like we were moving in a good direction. I've never been fired before so this is kind of new." List tells us that Jon gave him the boot "through an email."

Sources close to the custody case between Jon and Kate tell X17online that the couple have finally figured out that "they can be more effective in making money if they work together." Our source adds, "I believe their fighting has run the gamet."

For the children's sake, we hope so.

As for Mary Vidas, her bio says, "She has represented numerous individuals in a variety of complex family law issues, including divorce, equitable distribution, alimony, custody, and child support." Sounds like a good pick for Jon!
