What Happens When A Disbarred Lawyer Continues to Practice Law?

He goes to jail:
Accordingly, we approve the referee’s findings of fact, recommendations of guilt, and recommended sanctions as set forth in the report of the referee. Robert V. Palmer is sentenced to sixty (60) days in jail. Palmer shall surrender to the Duval County Sheriff within five (5) days after service of this order on Palmer. In the event Palmer does not surrender, the Sheriff of Duval County, Florida, is authorized and directed to take Palmer into custody and imprison him for sixty (60) days.
Cool -- dude's name is Robert Palmer!


  1. That should help in the pokey.

  4. I had no idea that disbarred lawyers would ever continue practicing law. I'm glad my lawyers in Parksville would never do anything like that.

  5. I wonder what practicing medicine without a license would draw? Sixty days?

  6. I had no idea that disbarred lawyers would ever continue practicing law. Thanks for sharing this informative post. Maybe a sexual abuse medford oregon attorney can do that.

  7. Good post. I'm experiencing some of these issues as well..

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.
