Despite a report today that claimed Kris Humphries’ L.A. attorney had bailed on his divorce case, a source reveals to that it’s not true.

Kris Humphries won’t be lawyerless in California as he pursues his annulment from Kim Kardashian, a source close to the Humphries family assures exclusively.

“He’s simply in the process of changing his L.A.-based attorney,” says the source. “And, his Minnesota-based lawyer, Lee Hutton, will still be the lead attorney anyway in court.”

Apparently, Humphries is close to hiring a new attorney, and he feels very confident that Hutton will be able to handle his impending court case with Kim because “Hutton has a strong and proven record of success in court,” says the source. Hutton was named 2010 Lawyer of The Year by Minnesota Lawyer magazine.

Humphries seems to want to be well-prepared to take Kim to court. He changed his L.A. attorney to strengthen his team because he’s taking the possibility of going to court VERY seriously, the source reveals to

We already told you that Kris is not focused on getting a monetary settlement from Kim Kardashian. What he really wants is an admission from the Kardashians that they had “malicious intentions to use him to benefit themselves or make money,” a source adds.

“Kris wants his name cleared. He wants people to know he’s not a jerk,” says the source.
