Oppa Hangover Style?

I hope this lawyer has a Black Card, because his birthday party destroyed over $90,000 worth of property. 

Sometimes you have to remember that just because something happens in a movie, that doesn’t mean it’s ok in real life. For instance, The Hangover probably isn’t something you should attempt to reinact. 



Choice quotes from the article linked above:

Robert Pearman, 45, a Los Angeles lawyer specializing in workers compensation, was charged with malicious destruction of property following the March 30 incident at the Encore’s three-bedroom, two-story, 5,829-square-foot duplex apartment.

According to his Las Vegas police report, the room was in “total disarray.” Furniture was overturned, shards of glass lined the floor, and food covered the carpet, walls, floors and drapes.

Police said a speaker, vase and Michelangelo book were also ruined. Encore staff projected the damage at $96,270.61, including labor and expenses.

When officers spoke to Pearman, the registered guest, the lawyer apparently admitted the incident.

“I take full responsibility for what happened here. We were partying,” Pearman told police. “I did all of this. I am responsible for all these people. Let my people go.”

It gets even better: 

The lawyer yelled at Encore staff in front of the officers and named the hotel’s owner, Steve Wynn, police said.

Pearman said he is a lawyer and “will depose Steve Wynn, and make this place Napalm,” police said. 

A deposition doesn’t really seem like a very good threat. Napalm on the other hand? Well…see yesterday’s post on arson. 


When do I get to argue with James Spader?

Welcome to the Hawg Law Blawg!

This blog is designed for new attorneys (young and old) who practice in Arkansas. The first few years of law practice are difficult and can be scary.

The goals of this blog are to:

  • provide a one-stop-shop for questions about Arkansas law practice and general practice
  • share insights from attorneys and judges at every level of practice
  • support an easy way for new attorneys to share tips, tricks, hints and spells (if they are effective)
  • have a few laughs; and
  • help each other help our clients

What this blog is not:

  • legal advice (don’t get your legal advice on the internet!)
  • a forum to trash talk particular attorneys or judges (or anyone)
  • a representation of the opinions of anyone I am associated with or related to
