Redlands Attorney Launches Surfside Bar Association!

I'm paraphrasing, but that's my takeaway from the Intrepid One's DBR story today:
When Donald Trump announced he was buying the Doral Golf Course-now called the Trump National Doral Miami—attorney Santiago Cueto started thinking about business and legal opportunities in the sprawling Miami suburb.

He googled "Doral Bar Association" and discovered none existed.

So Cueto took matters in his own hands and launched the Doral Bar Association. Some 70 people attended the launch party last week, held at the Mercantile Bank.

"I'm board certified in international law, and there are a lot of international businesses in Doral," said Cueto, who runs Cueto Law Group in Coral Gables. 
Ok, I know and like San and he's a good attorney, but what about this part: "who runs Cueto Law Group in Coral Gables."

Actually, I have a bigger problem with this part :
The Doral Bar already has a website,, and several officers, including Cueto as founding president; Miami personal injury attorney Spencer Aronfeld as vice president; Coral Gables immigration lawyer Leslie Snyder as vice president; and Coral Gables solo attorney Aura Olivas as secretary. The treasurer position is vacant.
No, not the part about them all being from the Gables, but how could Big Spence be relegated to Number 2?

Number 2?

We're just busting chops of course -- in all seriousness we wish them much success -- it's a good idea and we hope it takes off.

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…
