Laurence Leavy: The Marlins Man!

I had forgotten we're in the middle of a World Series, but then the Herald reminded me with this photo:


I love this guy!

Apparently he's a Broward workers' comp attorney named Laurence Leavy.

He's done more with this gesture to promote the Marlins and create good will in this community than that entire organization has ever done in its history.

The Sun-Sentinel has more:
Laurence Leavy is a 58-year-old lawyer with an office in Davie and a lot of spare money to travel to sports events. Super Bowls. Horse races. If you cull the internet, he's wearing his orange Marlins jersey in a sea of white at the "White-Hot" Heat playoff games.

ESPN's Buster Olney tweeted he didn't know who the "Marlins guy" was - and Leavy tweeted him back with his phone number for all in the Twitter-verse to see. ESPN's Keith Olbermann named those criticising him, "Today's Worst Person in the Sports World." He also described Leavy as "wearing that glow-in-the-dark, possibly nuclear-powered orange Marlins shirt and/or jacket.''(The Miami Herald's Clark Spencer wrote about him in this story.)
Larry, if you've got time, send us an email -- we'd love to chat with you! 

My first question:  Tell me you didn't pay retail for that outfit -- it's forever been in the discount racks at the Ross downtown. 

(Hey, these are the things I'm interested in.)

    On second though, Mr. Levy, you hiring?

  3. He is free to go to whatever event he likes and wear whatever clothes he wants, but I am free to state the opinion that he looks like a clown sticking out of place and wearing his hat sideways. What a goofball.

  4. Sorry but wearing the jersey of a team to a game when two other teams are playing is just stupid.

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…
