Just one month after vehemently denying she was parting ways with divorce lawyer Laura Wasser amid a bitter battle against Pitt, the actress revealed in a statement confirming that she had split with Laura.
'Angelina decided to change counsel to Samantha Bley DeJean of Bley and Bley,' her rep confirmed, 'as Samantha's expertise is the protection and best interests of children.'
As the divorce drags on, Brad continues to gain praise from media for quietly bonding with his children - Maddox, 17, Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 12, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 10.
'Angelina is more determined than ever to destroy Brad,' a friend explosively tells In Touch.
And, according to In Touch, the key to that plan of attack is retaining Samantha as her attorney.
'Angelina wants a no-holds barred legal team.'
