Warren Trazenfeld Explains How Not to Get Sued (By Warren Trazenfeld)!

Spencer's Attorney Breakfast Club may need to keep an extra supply of Maalox ("It's a Relief to Enjoy Life!") around as noted attorney malpractice expert Warren Trazenfeld gives everyone the willies as he explains how to avoid getting sued by your clients.

Here's my list:

1.  Never take on clients;
2.  Never put funds in or remove funds from a trust account;
3.  Never file anything (alternatively -- file everything); and
4.  Hide in closet until things blow over and/or the phone stops ringing.

Warren probably has a few more ideas so you may want to check out Friday's presentation.


  1. Aronfeld and Trazenfeld, what a pair!

  2. I just wanted to point out that on Monday, October 22, 2012, the Not So Honorable Rumpole blogged about how much "Window 8 sucks." Moreover, he express is disdain for all Microsoft products. Now, what's interesting is that Microsoft Windows 8 is actually being launched today Thursday, October 25, 2012. That means that the product will be available tomorrow in South Florida. Now, no one really asked Rumpole any significant follow-up questions regarding the new Windows version, but it's clear that he is a liar.

    That's what happens when anonymous bloggers live a lie. It eventually catches up with them in a pubic forum and it's embarrassing. It's the equivalency of a school girl lying and telling all her friends that she slept with Justin Timberlake and that he sucks in bed, but in reality she has no pictures to prove the encounter really happened and the truth is she never even met him. Now, what really happened here is that Rumpole read about Windows 8 somewhere and thought it would be cool to complain about it by implying that he already has the program and he's not satisfied with it, but that's impossible because it's officially launching tonight.

    What he's going to say in an attempt to clear up this mess is that Bill Gates personally sent him the product before the public was able to get their hands on it. Don't embarrass yourself any further, Rumpole.

    Live From Microsoft's Windows 8 Launch Event
    October 25, 2012 by Pete Pachal

    Microsoft will officially launch Windows 8 to the public today at a major event in New York City. The general release of the company’s next-generation operating system has been planned for a while, with a growing tide of pre-release software and plenty of hardware unveilings, including Microsoft’s own tablet, the Surface.

    The event kicks off at 10 a.m. Eastern. Mashable will be on the scene — keep your browser pointed right here for live updates as they happen, with commentary from our team of tech experts and enthusiasts. Feel free to join the conversation with a comment.

    After today, it will be up to the buying public to determine if Microsoft’s big gamble with Windows 8 was worth it. To make Windows suitable for mobile devices like tablets, Microsoft re-engineered it from the ground up, incorporating touch and connectivity at the root. As a result, the user interface is completely different from older versions of Windows. It remains to be seen whether customers will respond to it, but even if they don’t, the old Windows desktop is just a keystroke away in Windows 8.

    Microsoft’s job today is to explain clearly to the world why Windows 8 is a major step forward, and the reasons customers shouldn’t fear it. And although all of Microsoft’s manufacturing partners have revealed their Windows 8 lineups, the company may still have surprise or two.

    After all, Microsoft did keep the Surface a secret until right before it was unveiled.

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…
