The divorce proceeding between Angelina Jolie and her actor husband, Brad Pitt,  is turning into a battle of wits as each side is engaging the best divorce lawyers money can get.

Late Thursday, Pitt hired Lance Siegel, a divorce attorney who had represented the likes of Two-and-a-half-men star, Charlie Sheen, Heather Locklear, Michael Jackson and music mogul Russell Simmons, in their respective divorce cases.

Jolie was the first to get a lawyer according to different accounts of the divorce. She reportedly hired Debbie Wasser shortly after news of the divorce broke.

Like Pitt’s lawyer, Wasser has represented stars like Britney Spears and Stevie Wonder in their divorces. Wasser has represented Jolie in an earlier divorce case against Billy Bob Thornton.
