MLK Day Special Edition -- Spencer Aronfeld Takes On John F. Kennedy!



Hi kids, I hope all of you (even all the politicians who opposed it) are enjoying the holiday but also doing something meaningful to honor the legacy of MLK.

(Besides reading this crappy blawg).

For example, you could be representing the injured patrons of Shuckers:
Personal injury attorney Spencer Aronfeld, who represents several of the victims who have filed 10 civil lawsuits in Miami-Dade Circuit Court since the incident, said that rebuilding the deck could give the defendants an opportunity to find out what caused the collapse.

The Grentners and their attorney John F. Kennedy didn’t return phone calls or respond to questions through their publicist Seth Gordon. Legal records obtained by Aronfeld show that CRC Insurance Services Inc. and First Specialty Insurance Corp. represent Inn on the Bay and Inn on North Bay Ltd., which own Shuckers and and the attached Best Western Hotel. Calls to the insurance companies were not returned.

Aronfeld said he believes the court disputes will be resolved. He said dialogue with the representatives of Shuckers has been “positive.” One of his clients who was on the deck when it collapsed had a series of facial plastic surgeries just before the New Year.
Wait a minute -- Spencer is facing off against JFK??

This will be an epic battle for the ages!

There's more:
As important as the tax base, the popular sports bar is one of only a few on the bay’s calm waters in Miami-Dade, and Shuckers is probably North Bay Village’s main attraction. Aronfeld, the injury attorney, said he has received calls from Shuckers patrons begging him to refrain from trying to delay construction.

“Apparently, this neighborhood establishment has a cult-like following,” he said.
A "cult-like following"?

In other words -- just like Spence!

  1. First of all, this case exemplifies what I have always preached AVOID DECKS!
    Period.

    Second: A restaurant named Shuckers? Really? With knives flashing and prying open clams and oysters which are dangerous in their own right?
    I think not.

    JFK? Ha. Meet SA.
    You ain't seen nothing yet.

  6. Maybe one day he'll pay what he owes to people. Many people. Including his landlord for $7000/mo for the house (yes rented) and $2000/ mo for the car Gee. 31 employees in an 8 person firm in 3 years. How to start your own law firm....um. Not his way

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…
