DCBA Bench and Bar: My Current Situation.


Oh I kid -- of course it's fun to spend all Friday with hundreds of lawyers and judges shifting around from one panel to another in a brown 1989 Hyatt time capsule, engaging in repetitive small talk while looking at your emails worrying about all the work piling up back at the office.

Oops -- was that out loud?

Just joking Jordan -- don't put me on your s&*t list!

It's always among the best-produced legal events in South Florida and certainly a bang for the buck in terms of CLE, networking, and general legal schmoozing.

Have a great weekend!

  2. Look! On Ponce across from the courthouse!

    It's a Bird.

    It's a Plane.

    It's Charles Nelson Rlley!

    NO….It's Spencer Aronfeld, super lawyer. Yes, it's Super lawyer ... strange visitor from another planet, who came to Miami with powers and abilities far beyond those of mortal lawyers Super lawyer ... who can change the course of mighty litigation , bend jurors with his bare hands, and who, disguised as Spencer Aronfeld , mild-mannered litigator for a great metropolitan law firm, fights a never-ending battle for truth, justice, and the American way

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.

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…
