Guy Bailey Holy Crap (Again).

That is all.
Guy Bailey, the once-prominent Coconut Grove lawyer convicted of stealing $700,000 from his clients, is headed to prison for 25 months after failing to pay any restitution.
 Be nice to everyone you see on the way up etc.


  1. This idiot is copying your blog as well. Welcome to the party.

  2. Guy Bailey... a guy who could have had it all had he simply paid his bills and not thought he was above the rules.

  3. There is a lot more to this story. The $700,000 that Bailey stole was part of a settlement between Bailey's clients, Murray and Seth Levrant, and the exwife of Murray's son Jordan. A handwriting expert opined that the signature on a change of beneficiary form for a life insurance policy had been forged. and in Murray Levrant's deposition he admitted he mailed the change of beneficiary form to the life insurance company AFTER his son Jordan had tragically passed away-- during a confrontation with police following a report that Jordan had struck a neighbor in the face; police came and restrained him while he was allegedly under the influence of cocaine. He died while in police custody, allegedly. Post death, Jordan's dad Murray mailed a change of beneficiary form naming Murray and his son Seth as beneficiaries. The exwife sued and the parties settled. If Murray or Seth did forge the change of beneficiary form they didnt deserve the money anyway. Thats the irony. It doesnt excuse Guy Bailey's theft of settlement money but G-d does work in mysterious ways.

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…
