Happy Solstice! Glass Onion Edition





One of the worst parts of being Godwhacker is never knowing which dimension I'm in. Maleficent deities will  hide in the strangest of places. For example I woke up this morning in some strange parallel world where gay marriage was legal in Utah. Utah? Talk about your glass onions.

But this my holiday! I love the solstice because it is science based. It's not dependent on the repentance of the newborn, virgin candles, lasting 18 days because "shopping." This is the actual day when our days begin getting longer and the cycle of our year begins again. It is the obvious backbone of what all the other winter holidays are built around. This is the perfect time to reflect on where you are, how you got here, and where you'd like to go. You know, hippie stuff.

Peace out, y'all.

  2. I'm still at work. Depos will be done and cases prepped, holidays be damed. And BTW, if you feel that you or a loved one has been injured by a holiday like Thanksgiving or Christmas, call the lawyers at Spencer's World, even against Christmas, we will fight for you.

  3. Sunday is a work day/fun day at Spencer's World. Writing memos in a snazzy penny loafer with no socks gives the office a Miami Vice retro look.
    Book em Dano... No wait. That's Hawaii 5-0. Anyway, a rough beard and chartruae linen shirt and gold chain completes the look

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…
