    The Kim and Kourtney Take New York star lawyered up with Hutton for his split back in November, just a couple weeks after the divorce went public. And surprisingly, he's not your usual family law specialist.

    The Minnesota-based attorney actually represents a number of pro athletes and has counseled Humphries in other matters over the year.
