Personalized drawing caters to attorneys

I get a lot of random e-mails related to legal products, seminars, books, etc. But this one caught my eye because of its subject – lawyer cartoons. At first I thought maybe it was going to be lawyer jokes, but it’s actually a series of drawings with cheesy phrases that you can personalize.

Now you can get your attorney father an illustration of two kids fighting in a sandbox that says “Don’t threaten me… My father is a lawyer at (your law firm name here).” Want to tell a partner at your firm that he or she is a legal eagle? You’re in luck! There’s a cartoon portraying (an out-of-date) U.S. Supreme Court with what appears to be Justice Anthony Kennedy (or Dick Cheney, close call based on the drawing) crying out for a real legal eagle, and to get (your name here) on the phone.

Other cartoons include referring to your law firm as the 9th Wonder of the World, recognizing someone as superb at closing arguments, or that someone’s going to be eaten alive by a giant tiger because the opposing party retained (your firm). As a side note, I couldn’t help but plug in Keller & Keller’s name when reading this because the cartoon is almost exactly like the commercials I see during TV judge shows in which the guy that used to be on Empty Nest and hawked Isuzu cars now wants to settle a lawsuit after finding out that Keller & Keller is involved.

Another random note: This actor, David Leisure, has appeared in at least 10 other commercials for law firms/attorneys across the country, according to IMDB.com.   

While you can customize to add your name or your law firm name, the images don’t change, so if you don’t look like the person in the cartoon, you’re out of luck. So if you’re not a white, male attorney, you’re out of luck for the “World’s Best Lawyer” cartoon. I would like to take this moment to point out that there are quite a few female attorneys, as well as accountants, doctors, and dentists. Why this company limits its “world’s best” professions including females in the drawing to just podiatrists, teachers, and nurses is beyond me. But that’s a rant best saved for another blog post.

At first, I couldn’t believe that lawyers would be interested in this type of hokey cartoon, but then I realized the majority of cartoons offered by this company are geared toward attorneys. This could mean one of two things: 1) the artist just really likes drawing cartoons about attorneys, or 2) attorneys (or attorneys’ loved ones) eat this stuff up and buy it. I’m going to go with theory number two.

Here’s the website if you’re interested, www.yournameherecartoons.com. This stuff isn’t cheap, with a 16x20 framed drawing costing $350. Take a look at the cartoons and let me know what you think. Would you give this to someone or enjoy it as a present?

  2. The practitioners and judges who hail E-filing as the Saviour of the West need to contain their respective excitements. E-filing is federal court requires the practitioner to cram his motion practice into pigeonholes created by IT people. Compound motions or those seeking alternative relief are effectively barred, unless the practitioner wants to receive a tart note from some functionary admonishing about the "problem". E-filing is just another method by which courts and judges transfer their burden to practitioners, who are the really the only powerless components of the system. Of COURSE it is easier for the court to require all of its imput to conform to certain formats, but this imposition does NOT improve the quality of the practice of law and does NOT improve the ability of the practitioner to advocate for his client or to fashion pleadings that exactly conform to his client's best interests. And we should be very wary of the disingenuous pablum about the costs. The courts will find a way to stick it to the practitioner. Lake County is a VERY good example of this rapaciousness. Any one who does not believe this is invited to review the various special fees that system imposes upon practitioners- as practitioners- and upon each case ON TOP of the court costs normal in every case manually filed. Jurisprudence according to Aldous Huxley.

  3. Any attorneys who practice in federal court should be able to say the same as I can ... efiling is great. I have been doing it in fed court since it started way back. Pacer has its drawbacks, but the ability to hit an e-docket and pull up anything and everything onscreen is a huge plus for a litigator, eps the sole practitioner, who lacks a filing clerk and the paralegal support of large firms. Were I an Indiana attorney I would welcome this great step forward.

  4. Can we get full disclosure on lobbyist's payments to legislatures such as Mr Buck? AS long as there are idiots that are disrespectful of neighbors and intent on shooting fireworks every night, some kind of regulations are needed.

  5. I am the mother of the child in this case. My silence on the matter was due to the fact that I filed, both in Illinois and Indiana, child support cases. I even filed supporting documentation with the Indiana family law court. Not sure whether this information was provided to the court of appeals or not. Wish the case was done before moving to Indiana, because no matter what, there is NO WAY the state of Illinois would have allowed an appeal on a child support case!
