Kudos on the extended tracking shot and the Aaron Sorkin-like "walk and talk."


  1. I like the scenery.

  2. The ability of flight is highly overrated. You're a sitting duck up there!

  3. Who knew that you could get an echo chamber effect by just speaking in a conversational tone on Ponce de Leon Blvd? Impressive.

  4. County court is not really "the courthouse."

  5. Is telling people your office is next to a courthouse supposed to suggest some level of competence? Who comes up with these "marketing" ideas? Nevermind, I already know the answer to that.

  6. Haters gotta hate.

  7. I call bullshit. That ad is misleading. That's the Coral Gables Fucking District Court, where you can file a small claims case, pay your parking ticket, and renew your fishing license, but that's about it. Low-brow stuff.

    He's insinuating that he will litigate a personal injury case there, which is horseshit. Actually, his office is inconvenient any nowhere near any of the state or federal courthouses where such cases are litigated. In fact, in morning traffic it's quite a hike.

  8. Is that his soul escaping from his body?

    I was going to add my usual pithy comment. But I cannot top 3:20 pm. Well done my friend.

  10. Well he's no shumie that's for sure.

    Go to The Ren and see the difference.

  11. I wonder if he received the proper permits from the FAA to fly that drone...

  12. Where is Jack Thompson and a bar complaint

  13. I would live to see him fly a drone by the fed ct, judge Moreno would personally shoot it down with a stinger missile

  14. What a coincidence. My office is just steps away from Sally Russell's. Not sure it's listed on any forum selection clauses though.

  15. You used to be able to file any state circuit court pleadings at the Coral Gables Courthouse, but now with electronic filing, I'm not sure why location matters.

  16. I have never thought that a lawyers office is the courthouse. I guess technically it isn't, but it probably seems to them that it is. If I were to spend that much time in a courthouse it would probably feel like my home away from home.

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…
