Client: "So did you get me a good deal on the traffic ticket?"

Lawyer: "Yep, sure did. You only have to serve a week in max security!"

Client: "It was only $100 fine and points originally!"

Lawyer: "Meh, I taught that biatch whose top dog around here."

Client: "Hey, why is your law license printed on tissue paper?"

Violation of Law? Nope.

Here's an article with more info:  https://www.freep.com/story/money/bus​i​ness/2019/02/20/clifford-woodards-atto​rney-facebook/2875476002/

Apparently this guy has had multiple past complaints about his unprofessional/sexist behavior in the court room.

FTFA:  citing his additional years of experience

I call this the "Unsolicited Resume."

When people are wrong, or in some cases, right, but don't understand why, this is often their fallback position:  "I've been doing this for 12 years, and...."

Almost everyone I've seen take that line has been demonstrably wrong.

Dear Article Writer,

While I appreciate your attempted humor in your subtitle, if you are going to reference an old TV show, get your snark right. Doogie, not Dougie.
 
2019-02-26 12:16:26 PM  
He is clearly an asshole, but I would need video to prove he was lying. I have heard versions of this for years from all kinds of sources, and I don't think I have ever heard someone report that SOMEONE ELSE told them to back up and get out of their face that didn't have to eventually apologize for being in someone's face.
No one goes back into a room in order to tell someone that is not blocking their path to get out of their way. He's an asshole  but her version of the story absolutely sounds like he was right about her flexing on him to try to establish her authority.

As he was leaving the office, Woodards said something to the effect of: "These kids think they know everything and always want to argue with people," the complaint alleges.

Isn't that kind of the job description of "Attorney"?

Um, isn't that the definition of lawyering? WTF?

Sounds like somebody needs to retire. His Foghorn Leghorn impression hasn't aged well at all.

Early 40s white guy is my bet.  If they aren't actually a top dog by then, they turn into entitled bulkying dickheads to people they see as socially weaker than themselves.

Then they go snivelling to their boss

I know it as an argument from authority; a major sign you're dealing with a moron/a-hole.

Clifford Woodards II ... So, like Junior?  I don't think you can go straight to II.  You have to go Junior, then you can go, the third, fourth, using your fancy Roman numerals.
 
2019-02-26 12:33:49 PM  
Oh, I see, he's not yet retirement age. Well, then, maybe he should consider another line of work.

He sounds like he went to the Steve Harvey Upstairs Law School for Law Talking.

FTA: "this isn't the first time Woodards has been in hot water for name calling. He previously was reprimanded and fined by the Attorney Discipline Board for telling a probation officer she had "angry black woman's syndrome" and "that's why you don't have a husband."

I'm guessing this one is headed for another repremand, hopefully on an increasing scale since this is a repeated offense and a pattern of behavior that was not corrected by the first sanction. Attorney discipline boards tend not to have much of a sense of humor about these things, especially when their prior advice and counsel was not taken to heart.

Usually II is used when the child is named after someone other thanbthe father. Like say a grandfather.

Jr. is used when you're named after your father.  "II" is used if you're the 2nd in the family with the same name, such as being named after your grandfather or great-grandfather.
 
2019-02-26 12:43:12 PM  
Oh wow. So this guy is not just a sexist, ageist and racist piece of shiat he's also a special kind of stupid to talk that way to another attorney in a professional setting.

How many people do you suppose this guy has bullied over the years that don't happen to belong to professional association which will deal with this sort of bullshiat?
