Barber Shops and Caesar Salads

by Jamison Koehler on July 22, 2012

Apart from the seven years we spent in Philadelphia, I have been going to the same barber for over 30 years.  There are three problems with this.  One, my barber has a heavy Cuban accent so I have trouble understanding him.  Two, he has grown hard-of-hearing over the years so he has trouble understanding me. Three, he really likes to talk.

The judge did all sorts of crazy things to get himself removed from the bench, including four acts of willful misconduct and fourteen acts of prejudicial conduct.  My favorite was when he asked two female attorneys appearing in front of him for a preliminary hearing whether or not they knew the difference between a Caesar salad and a blowjob.  “Great,” said the judge when they replied that they did not.  “Let’s have lunch.”  (H/T Charles Sevilla via Brian Gurwitz)

The Koehler Law management team met today.  We agreed on everything I suggested.  We also agreed that I am very good-looking.

Note to client:  The guilty plea colloquy is not the right time to begin asserting your innocence.

I love the complainants in an assault case.  One minute they are doing cartwheels in the hallway.  The next thing you know they are limping into the courtroom.  The best have perfected that very mournful, woe-is-me look.
