"The Situation" Is In a "Situation" With His Own Attorney Richard Wolfe!

And by "situation" I mean he is being sued for passing a bad check to his long-time lawyer Richard Wolfe:
Per the complaint, Wolfe Law is asking the Sorrentinos to pay them $29,175.20. Wolfe Law says that the Sorrentinos attempted to repay at least part of the balance, but the checks cut by the brothers a few months ago never cleared. . . .When asked for comment, Wolfe noted that "it's never smart to bounce a check to your own lawyer."
True dat, peeps.

Richard has handled many cases for this client, some of which we have happily documented here, here, here, here, here, well you get the idea.


  1. It's hard out here for a pimp.

  2. I hope Richard gets paid. He's a very nice guy. I litigated a case against him for several years and he's such a gracious person outside the courtroom (and occasionally inside).

  3. Happy Friday, SFL.

    Any team faves for The World Cup-- Argentina or Germany?

  4. Don't cry for Argentina!

  5. Who doesn't make The Situation pay upfront?

  6. Germany been my second choice and first when he lads from England were knocked out. Ich Bein ein Berliner.

  7. Not a fan of Richard Wolfe at all, but I guess he should get paid what he's owed.

  8. The Situation is probably "judgment proof," these days. Sad, but likely true. Let's face it: No one buys ab-workout videos anymore.

  9. It will be interesting to see how that plays out. I will have to follow this story. You don't want to have a disagreement with your lawyer.

  10. Wolfe is an asshole but we simply cannot have clients failing to pay counsel! Go get 'em Dick!

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…
