Grey Robinson Claims to Enjoy ANOTHER Banner Year!!!



Man, how did we miss THIS?!

As it has every year for the last few years, the DBR has elaborated on Grey Robs' press release regarding its success.

Read Editor Catherine Wilson's Julie Kay's writing here, support for which is "according to Lynyrd "Byff" Marshall."

And, yeah, I don't have a problem with, you know, relationships, but, ah, you know.

Anyhoo, never no mind what you know.

The DBR ranked Grey Rob behind Akerman, Holland, Carlton, and Greenberg.

In Gross revenue , they're behind Holland; Akerman; Carlton; Kasowitz; Nelson; Arent; Kelley; Hinshaw; Diaz Reus.

And of course what you don't know may be important: "Profits per partner figures were not available, Marshall said." That's kind of important, Jules.

Instead, pay attention to what they say:

Biff gives out tokens ("As he has for 21 years, Marshall again handed out gold coins to shareholders and of counsel as a token of his appreciation.")

The firm reported a 7 percent jump in gross revenue in 2011 and 8 percent in 2010. (JUMP?)

Associates "averaged" a 9 % raise (in the government they call it a "cost of living increase".)

Big additions to The Firm!!!!!

A. Former Miami City Manager Tony E. Crapp Jr. (you can read about him on FBI wire taps here, telling former police chief exposito "Yeah I don’t have a problem with you, you know, being compensated for, you know an exit,” said Crapp."

B. Neil Linden, Adorno Zeder. (Zeder. Yoss. FIRE!)

C. Peter Quinter (Becker: The number you have reached is no longer in service.)

Crapp.

D. Glenn Cooper, formerly of Fowler White (not sure which one) - who LOVES Canadians! And Brazilians. (Who doesn't?)

Pete is the most candid. "Yes, I wanted more money, but it was equally important for me to choose the right law firm that fit my personality," he said.

Lifeline.

I'll give you this: Gray attracts lawyers who are meant to be together.

Plus, they are big in politics.

N.B.: Isn't it kind of weird how The Firm's fiscal year ends in August?

August? Really?

Half way through last year? Half way through this year? When everyone is on vacation?

Extremely Floridian accounting paramenters.

Hey...it works. Just ask Cathy at the DBR.

My Kind of Federal Judge!

Sure we have Scott Rothstein and his lovely Tom James clothier Romina Sifuentes, but Louisiana has ED LA judge G. Thomas Porteous Jr.:
A federal judge from Louisiana who had run up big gambling debts routinely solicited money and gifts from lawyers with cases before his court, Congressional investigators said Tuesday as the House opened impeachment hearings in the judge’s case. The judge, G. Thomas Porteous Jr. of Federal District Court, had more than $150,000 in credit card debt by 2000, mostly for cash advances spent in casinos, investigators said. Judge Porteous’s requests for cash became so frequent that one New Orleans lawyer said he started trying to dodge the judge.“He began to use excuses that he needed it for tuition, he needed it for living expenses,” the lawyer, Robert Creely, told a House Judiciary Committee task force. “I would avoid him until I couldn’t avoid him anymore.”
Mr. Creely said he and his law partner, Jacob Amato, gave Judge Porteous an estimated $20,000 o…

Honoring Richard C. Seavey

I drank a shit-ton of bourbon last night. Enough to float a battleship.

My head hurts. But not as much as my heart.

We lost another lawyer over the weekend. Not someone who will receive facebook accolades and other public claims of friendship and statements that he shaped and changed lives and careers. Just a guy who did the best he could with what he had. Every day. And he did very, very well to be the best person he could be. 
Richard Seavey was a profoundly private person. In his 49 years, he walked through more than his share of trials and tribulations, mostly asking for no help, leaning on no one. 

Richard was a fantastic lawyer. He could try a case. He could "litigate" a case. He could mediate and settle a case. He was nuanced. He bent but never broke. The blustery Miami lawyer never scared him. To the contrary, he found humor in it, studying it like a science project. Richard never got too high or too low. He was good at lawyering, but you got the f…
