Arnold Schwarzenegger And Maria Shriver's Lawyers: Who Are They? (PHOTOS)

After separating from Arnold Schwarzenegger last month and finding out about his long-hidden love child with former housekeeper Mildred Patricia Baena, Maria Shriver did what every savvy woman (with means) would do--lawyer up. And not just with any lawyer--Shriver snapped up attorney-to-the-stars Laura Wasser to represent her in what has the makings of a contentious (and expensive) split.

This week Schwarzenegger followed suit and hired legal counsel of his own--famed divorce lawyer Robert Kaufman. Both are known for maintaining a low profile for their clients, so don't expect a public battle--according to experts, if divorce proceedings ensue, these two will likely settle out of court.

It's not the first time Kaufman and Wasser have gone head-to-head; the celebrity lawyers squared off for Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey's split in November 2005.

Below, some of their most well-known clients.

Kaufman's Client: Jennifer Aniston

Kaufman represented Jennifer Aniston in her split from Brad Pitt in March 2005. Hollywood's former golden couple was married for four-and-a-half years before calling it quits. Aniston is now rumored to be dating screenwriter Justin Theroux, while Pitt has moved on with longtime love Angelina Jolie, with whom he has six kids.
