The ones I have met, PI lawyers and not necessarily the big time guys, know it’s a racket and do it because they are greedy fricks. They know it’s wrong and that it fricks everyone else with high insurance rates and ties up the courts. They don’t care, they justify it with “everyone else is doing it too”.


At least some are honest. The worst are those who still think they are doing god's work for their "injured" clients. Those who admit that they are simply a pig at the trough have at least gotten past the fake robin hood bull shite and are just unapologetic scumbags trying to pay off their student loans. They know the reckoning is coming and most have contingency plans for what they are going to do when the gravy train finally derails.

This is a laughable thread. If you simply met them one time briefly that’s not knowing them. How many people come off as true dick heads in only one meeting? Not a lot except for the biggest.

2ndly, if you actually know them you likely aren’t going to call them out here. Or worked for them or whatever.

To have their job and run their amount advertising, you have to have a certain moral flexibility and that in itself makes all of them pieces of shite. They do what they do for the money alone.

Not to mention, it’s a hell of a lot easier to be a nice good person once you’ve made it financially. It’s getting their that tests who you are.

I met Morris Bart on the beach in Destin. We had an LSU flag planted so he came up and talked to us about LSU/Saints/Pelicans. Realllllly nice dude.

The big “billboard attorneys” are more businessman than attorney at this point. Their personalities differ, and overlap, as much as you would expect from people who are visible presidents/CEOs of successful businesses.

I did Patron shots at Gold Cup with a TV lawyer back in the day named Christian Hill. He advertised himself as a wholesome family lawyer. He was a party animal that night. You could tell he was a regular. I read he's no longer with us.

Met Morris Bart on a few occasions. Each time he was drunk or high as giraffe pussy. Surprisingly really cool.

No dumbass. they are without a doubt the reason it's higher. The vast majority of the lawsuits filed from accidents are complete bull shite.
the insurance companies settle with them b/c it's usually cheaper to do so than actually bring it to court and fight for it, especially if they know the judge handling it is likely going to side with his buddy PI attorney friend regardless of what is presented, so we get people who have zero injuries and zero need to sue someone, sue for $50k, since that's the max you can sue before it goes to a jury, making the former PI judge the sole decider of this trial, and the insurance companies just settle the $50k and the lawyer walks away with something like $25k, the chiropractor walks away with something like $15k, and the shitbag who decided to call the shitbag lawyer b/c he got in an accident but wasn't hurt gets $8k.

And these dumbass's want to raise that $50k minimum for a jury trial to $100k, so then when joe shitbag is bumped from behind with minimal damage and no injures, he can sue for $100k instead of $50k.

I met him in the late 1980's when I was working a summer internship at a big N.O. firm . Everybody at the defense firm liked him personally.

Have known the Dudley Debosier guys for years especially James Peltier who is a fantastic lawyer.

Spencer Callahan is a fool

Michael Hingle is a serious dude.

Michael Bradner is a lot of fun, good guy to work for

I assumed he works for one of them. People made similarly ignorant arguments in the tort reform thread a dew months back.

The reckoning is tort reform, even partial, wherein the herd of BI plaintiff attorneys will be thinned (and some defense too) and those who cannot adapt to the new system will have to find other work. The $50K jury threshold is the only thing keeping a good portion of the plaintiff bar in business right now. Without it, many would not survive.

re: People that have met the Billboard lawyers in real life, what are they like?
well i've seen it happened twice now when my wife was in an accident, and that's the jist of what happened.
She was at fault in the first accident, bumping someone from behind. That woman got $8k after my insurance settled at the $50k, the rest going to the lawyer and chiropractor that likely did absolutely nothing for her b/c nothing was wrong with her. Neither car had any damage outside of a few dings.
The next one got the same $50k from us, even though my wife wasn't at fault b/c she was hit from behind while at a stop, which caused her to hit the guy in front of her, and he sued the 3 people involved, a 18 wheeler included, and the total lawsuit was around $600k, and that guy, that barely had a scratch on his car, walked away with $110k of that $600k. My wifes car was almost totaled in the accident, and we didn't sue anyone b/c we weren't hurt in any way and the car was repaired after paying my $250 deductible. We aren't pieces of shite though.

Morris Bart walked by Lucy's on Monday and the crowd had some fun with heckling him. He was laughing and taking it in stride. Some girl near me said "holy shite it's Morris Bart!" like he's some sort of celebrity. The entire thing was kind of odd
