Bryan Cave Lures South Florida "Dream Team"!

Hi kids!

I don't know about you, but I'm having trouble following this rare cultural collision of Purim and St. Paddy's Day -- did Haman wear shamrocks to read the Megillah before Queen Esther hired that serial murderer leprechaun to use a deadly grogger to lead a bloody rebellion against British subjugation?

Or did I have too much Havana Club last night?

Anyways, big news -- the dynamic duo of international arbitration, the George and Gracie Abbott and Costello Leopold and Loeb Steve and Edie, ok that's enough --- the Lennon and McCartney of blue-chip South Florida litigators, Pedro Martinez-Fraga and C. Ryan Reetz, have agreed to head the new Miami office of Bryan Cave:
The international law firm Bryan Cave LLP ( announced today the opening of an office in Miami, Fla. Located at 200 South Biscayne Blvd., the office will be led by Partners Pedro J. Martinez-Fraga, who will serve as co-leader of Bryan Cave’s International Arbitration Practice, and C. Ryan Reetz, the managing and hiring partner for the office.
Congratulations and get your resumes to Ryan asap!

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…
