It's Official: We're Sweet on Julie Braman Kane!

There's no question Julie will be inscribed and sealed into the Book of Life:
Julie’s work for the American Association for Justice (AAJ) is her way of protecting the United States Constitution’s Seventh Amendment right to a jury trial and access to courts. This work that speaks to her heart, not only protects her current and future clients, but protects all of our constitutional rights. Julie is most proud of her work with the Voter Protection Action Committee, the AAJ’s national election protection program that protects the voting rights of American citizens whose access to the polls is limited.

Julie started and chaired the Voter Protection Action Committee in 2012, when voter suppression legislation was on the rise across America. As chair, Julie helped ensure that U.S. citizens voting rights were assured and their ballots were counted during the 2012 election. Under her leadership, the Voter Protection Action Committee is gearing up again to partner with other national organizations to ensure that all legitimate votes are counted during the November 2014 election.

This very busy dedicated woman has been married to Jeffrey Kane for almost 20 years and is the mother of three wonderful children: Jonah, 15, and twins Annie and Sophie, 9. When she is not working, volunteering or spending time with her family, she enjoys walking, reading and baking.
She's such a multi-tasker she probably does all three at the same time!

  4. A young Pat Seitz!

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…
