Super Kluger Friday!

The online DBR has this cool Kluger pic accompanying the story about a Miami law firm suing its former client for terminating a bulk legal services contract for PIP defense:
Miami-based Herssein Law Group is suing the United Services Automobile Association, alleging that its breach of contract forced the law firm to close its Tampa office, shrink in Miami and fire 15 employees.
USAA, a financial services company, terminated its contract with Herssein last month despite a clause specifying that only Herssein could end the agreement, according to the lawsuit filed Monday in Miami-Dade Circuit Court.
The suit also alleges that USAA did not live up to its contractual obligation to give Herssein half of its personal injury protection insurance legal work in Florida. The law firm seeks $5 million in unpaid fees for work already performed.
Could the contract really be that clear?

Oh hail let's make this Alan Friday:

Really love the last one on his boat (it's nice to enjoy yourself and find some quality relaxation time).

Happy Friday!!


  1. Dont ever refer a case to Kluger or the law firm. They will screw you out of the referral fee that was promised.Bet on it. Avoid this little person at all costs.

  2. Dear 5 pm,

    Your comment conjures Amy, angry, with a strap on.

    Oh come on .

    You're all thinking it . I'm just saying it .

  3. Isn't it a violation of the florida bar rules to have a contract with a client that only allows the lawyer to terminate it?


    Where is GW when you need him...

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…
