Default Lawyers! Never a dull moment!

I'm helping a colleague this week on a project we did last year here in DC. One of the buildings is a very large law firm. This lawyer, who lives across the street in the apartments, was "let go" last week by the law firm and yesterday, dude had a meltdown!! Apparently, he came down to the lobby saying some weird shit, which wouldn't be too odd around here, except for the fact he was buck naked!!

The cops came and gave him a ride to Georgetown Hospital for "evaluation".

Good for the evaluation...

I don't know if it is particularly bad this year or not, but I personally know of three suicides in the past two weeks. One friend and two acquaintances, (54, 48 & 45).

I'm sure their families would have appreciated them doing something "stupid" first.

Tokinred, are you really Robert Rubenstein? If so, those commercials are genius, if not highly misleading and setting up unrealistic expectations!

bahahahahahaha

The only person I've ever created unrealistic expectations for was my wife. She thought we'd be rich......poor, naive woman.

That's the last thing I would do.

I'm obviously having a bad day.

No need to make it worse with everyone pointing and laughing.

I think that is illegal. Guy doesn't know dick about law. If so, just barely.

He was probably starting to lose it a little bit before he was let go. I can't imagine being let go from a big firm around here would cause someone to lose their marbles...it seems those skills are instantly transferable to any one of a number of big firms aroung here.

Who knows though. I'm a public-sector guy.

Hope they can figure him out

This could have ended badly

2 Police Officers shot just outside a Minnesota City Hall.

Raymond had multiple criminal charges and restraining orders against him, jail time and had even been committed to the Minnesota Security Hospital for the mentally ill in St. Peter.

I always found Hunter Thompson's attorney to be a stand up guy.
