Some PR Person Thought This Was News!

I'm always amused and occasionally surprised by the content that pr flacks sometimes put out there for lawyer clients.

This one -- heralding an exciting new "infographic" -- is a nice example:
A Miami based law office founded by personal injury lawyer Sean M. Cleary published an inforgraphic with Miami’s emergency phone numbers: http://www.clearypa.com/pdf/miami-emergency-contacts.pdf.

Everyone knows that the first number to call with any kind of emergency is 911, a number which is quite easy to recall. As in case of emergencies, time is crucial; there are some other important emergency phone numbers we need to know, especially if these differ from state to state.
The visual infographic published by The Law Offices of Sean M. Cleary contains the phone numbers and official logos of Miami Police Department, Miami-Dade Fire Rescue and Miami-Dade County Health Department.

“I think that a visual, easily printable graphic with these phone numbers always comes in handy,” says personal injury lawyer Sean M. Cleary. “Whether you print it out and have it with you at all times, or just know the infographic’s exact location will help if it comes to that,” he added.
Ok, I'm happy there is a place where three local emergency numbers are collected into one spot, with helpful logos.  (Actually, how helpful are logos in an emergency exactly?)

But let's not get carried away, alright?

And do we really need a lawyer quote about the infographic --  I know that's de riqueur for press releases, but we are talking about an infographic after all.

BTW here is the much-discussed infographic in all of its "easily printable" glory:


 Oh I'm kidding of course -- that's a real-life deposition exhibit!

  3. 10:51: I think most of us are mocking/laughing at that horrible advertisement, so whether it "worked" is debatable.

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…
