"One Take" Spencer -- The Dude Nailed It!

First, the positives -- the outfit is actually quite stylish, knit ties are making a comeback, and the added wind tunnel effect makes it seem that he is recording live right outside the courthouse, as opposed to a green screen from his office in the Gables.

The negatives -- no homeless photo bomb!


  1. The "Southern District of the United States District Court System." That's inaccurate, yet, given that we're in Miami, oddly accurate at the same time.

  2. The measure of all men.

  3. He is wrong. If the cruise does not originate in, stop in, or return to a US port, the case will not end up here. Just ask the folks (including Americans) on the cruise ship that Carnival ran aground in Italy. They were forum nonned back to Italy.

    "Hi, I'm spencer Aronfeld and you're not."

    "Hi...ummm..." CUT

    "Hey now!" CUT

    "Hi I'm Spencer Aronfeld,,,," passerby yells "BABA BOOEY HOWARD STERN'S PENIS BABA BOOEY BABA BOOEY"
    SA: "That's it. I'm sung Howard. Call the girls at the office. Cancel all leaves. Everyone works until we get this complaint out."

    "Hi I'm Spencer Aronfeld...ughhhh. " A phalanx of US Marshals tackles the strange man making videos of the Federal Court house.
    SA: " can't do that....gimme my iphone back. Gimmee give it here...ouch, no fair kicking and biting. I'm a lawyer and you sir are in a lot of trouble. OW. Stop punching!!"

  5. Camera pans to the top floor balcony of the office across the street, where actual trial lawyers work...they are looking down, laughing at the civil lawyer talk about what it is like to try a case.

    Courthouses can be dangerous. They are flooded and filled with mold, asbestos, and decrepit support beams.

    Oh wait, that's state court.

  7. Spencer is a hardworking and honest guy. I attended the Lawyers to the Rescue event at the Camillus House. I don't know many lawyers who would work so hard for the homeless for free.

  8. Clearly SFL is a friend or fan.

  9. Right. Much in the same way that we all admire Kim Kardashian.

  10. Which one broke the internet?

  11. everybody is a Spencer fan at first, until he does you wrong. ...Which inevitably happens.

    I think that was a hit country music song:

    "My civil lawyer spencer done me wrong....
    my wife got the money
    all I got was this song
    My civil lawyer spencer done me wrong..."

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…
