How's That Fancy New Downtown Office Building Working Out?


So I understand you have to park in Fort Lauderdale and walk about twenty miles if you want to get anywhere near downtown Miami this weekend:
Good morning, Miami — hope you're not planning on driving anywhere today! Let's review just a few of the interesting things that are happening in your city today: The Miami Open, one of the world's most popular tennis tournaments, continues with early round play in Key Biscayne. Critical Mass, the monthly group bicycle ride, rolls out of downtown at 7:15 tonight. And oh yeah, there's also that little electronic dance party called Ultra kicking off this afternoon at Bayfront Park. 
Then you've got some kid concert Saturday, Wicked, and a Heat game Sunday.

So if you already had trouble parking at that huge office building they built in the middle of an existing traffic jam, you might as well just stay home and think about how $43 per square foot space could go to partner salaries.

Oh yeah -- happy Friday!

  3. Not sure what freaked me out more today. Driving to work in Ultra traffic or just seeing this headline on the DBR website which caused coffee to dribble out of my open mouth: "With 29 Years on Bench, Judge Gisela Cardonne Ely Proves She Belongs There"

  5. Silly mortals with their corporal forms and antiquated transportation issues. The journey is the destination.

  6. No way Judge Cardonne-Ely has been on bench for 29 years.

  7. She's been a judge for 29 years total. Total amount of time spent "on the bench" is 14 hours, 37 minutes.

  10. We have offices located conveniently in Coral Gables well away from the madness of downtown. So If you need PI lawyers to say, sue Ultra, we are standing by ready to sue.

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…
