Hey, everybody. It's about that time to cajole your friends and colleagues into voting for you as a super duper elite lawyer so that you may wallow in your ersatz self-importance and watch all those phone lines light up with oh-so eager clients-to-be, wanting to throw hundreds of thousands of dollars at your feet because you are a super lawyer. Poor bastards!

Call the shumie on all these new judicial openings. Does not portend well for the future of litigation in Miami.

I may sell my Chicken Delicious franchises in Sheboygan and come back on the bench. Of course I will place my cannabis farm investments in a blind trust.

Is Wizeman's Maybach the lime green one I keep seeing in south beach outside of prime one? Yellow leather seats and flashy red metallic rims

If we need judges why not bring back Shelly Schwartz? He'd whip those divisions into shape.

New ASA said...

I wish I knew who everyone was talking about. Sounds fun and fascinating.

Losing Slom is like Obama resigning.

JR said...

2:06 that's his style so wouldn't be surprised if that was his ride.

super lawyer; top lawyer; scam lawyer; best young lawyer; best old lawyer; best hot lawyer; all of them require pay to play. Give us money and we will list you as best old, best new, best hottie, top, super, and super-duper.

Is there really a retired judge in the chicken business?

Anonymous said...

Yes his name is cheddar or swiss or edam or some cheesy name. Now he hustles fried chicken to fat people in the Midwest.

You know on DOM's blog they have in depth discussions of the committee notes on hearsay exceptions and other such topics.

C.J. John Roberts said...

That's why this blog rules. Fried chicken. Lime green Maybachs. Football. Babes. Food. A little law. This blog covers it all.
