A letter to a lawyer 

I am a lawyer, but also in business actually to create something. I have many times fantasized about writing a letter like this, restrained only by fiduciary duty and my obvious need to cling to some shred of professionalism. I do, however, occasionally send friendly Christmas cards to people who are suing me. I recommend it. Not only does it bring a moment of civility in to our over-lawyered lives, but you might learn something. If your litigant laughs, you know you are not dealing with a humorless moron.

That, I love!

If I'm interpreting correctly, the law firm being addressed here Arnold Gallagher Percell Roberts & Potter.

So much for the magic marker.

I thought the law firm was Dewey, Cheatham and Howe.

And if it was Arnold Gallagher Percell Roberts & Potter that means it's probably Steelhead Brewing Company who initiated the nastygram.

Well, a quick Google search for hopasaurus rex gives us Steelhead (Eugene, OR), Tiletown (Green Bay, WI) & Freetail(the authors of the letter). Since beards were mentioned, my (poorly informed) assumption is that it was Steelhead, no hugs for them! Hi-fives still acceptable.

Clicking on the link I was certain I was going to see my personal favorite, the Cleveland Browns response to a lawyer's threat. It's great to see that it's not only my old hometown that has legal responses hitting the right note!

Just laughed out loud at the Cleveland Browns letter linked to above. I had never seen that before.
