These Boots Are Training Lawyers to Be Docents!

It's a new year and I've decided to "accentuate the positive" with a heartwarming story about a guy who just wants to share his art:
Miami attorney Alan Kluger has turned his law office into an art museum with renowned contemporary Latin American paintings, sculpture and photography.

While displaying art in law offices is nothing new, Kluger's collection is so impressive that it's like a retrospective art show unto itself.

He has plans to open the office of Kluger, Kaplan, Silverman, Katzen & Levine on weekends to tour groups, targeting family members of those in Miami to attend various conventions. Kluger is already contacting nearby hotels.

"We are going to train lawyers and their spouses to be docents and give tours of the art collection," he said.
Why the hail not?

(The mere practice of law is overrated.)

Let me try out for the job:  "The bathrooms are located straight ahead to your right."

Oh I kid -- the guy's got chutzpah and we need more -- not less -- art in the world.

I say "good on you."


  1. NRBQ's version of the song, particularly live, is one of the best. Big Al belting out the sermon blows the roof off.

  2. Did Pacenti write this to troll SFL?

  3. So sad to see Pacenti go. No federal court reporter with any judgment or neutrality left. No writer left who judges and lawyers trust. Maybe Ovalle will step up and fill that void.

  4. What a beautiful, clear day today.

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…
