Divorce, Business As Usual At Stanley Mosk

November 9, 2010

Between my travels to New York and Mexico, I decided to visit my old stomping grounds, The Stanley Mosk Courthouse. Who do I see upon my arrival on the 8th floor but two of the major partners of Meyer, Olson, Lowy and Meyers, Lisa Helfend Meyer and Felicia Meyers. They were sitting with two rather grumpy looking females and I was not sure what to do, so I did a very quick hello and caught up with them later.

Stopped in a few of the courtrooms and it was the usual Liars Club, former mates for life that are now in the process of turning each others lives inside out. Not only is this miserable for people like me, I can only imagine what goes through the minds of the Judges and other bench officers at having to deal with this crap day in and day out. For the lawyers it is nothing short of hitting the lottery when they get clients with BIG FAT WALLETS…and in the end folks, the only reward is what you get paid…there are seldom any winners in the end, if and when that ever comes. Some of the divorce proceedings last longer that the marriage.

I got to see two lawyers trying to give Judge Scott Gordon an incredible snow job, these two were throwing snow faster than a NorEaster. However, it was about to get real warm, real fast for these two legal beagles. Trying to plow around Gordons court is not a good idea folks…he was a street cop way before a judge and some of those memories are still with “his Honor.”

While sitting in front of Judge Diazs courtroom, who strolls by but Manley Freid of Fried and Goldsman, another SUPER LAWYER…LMAO, who makes SUPER DOLLARS. Mr. Freid made an interesting comment to Lisa Meyer while seated in the front of Judge Diazs court, he asked, “did you bring crayons and cartoons?”…was this in reference to Judge Diazs ability to make decisions…we wondered. Now Judge Diaz has a bit of a style that I am not sure everyone gets, so I asked if she or one of her assistants had in fact brought crayons or cartoons…she looked at me and laughed. Mr. Freid also shared with those within earshot that he lost 50 lbs…He told us that he was watching his diet and walking a great deal. I wondered if he might be walking to the bank to make his deposits?

old cougar typeOh I almost forgot, and who else do I see, my good friend, Sticey Flips (not so much) of the very prestigious law firm of Phillips, Lerner, Lauzon & Jamra. Sticey Flips was wearing what I am sure was a very expensive animal print, like an old cougar type print. There is not a question in my mind that Ms. Flips wears extraordinarily high dollar clothes, she is another very rich divorce lawyer. I was told recently that my name is like, NOT to be mentioned around that firm…I don’t know why she is mad at ME, I don’t buy her clothes…BUT, she always has great shoes.
