    Unfortunately Mr. Ostrow is the norm here in Broward County.

    A brief history from the local blog: http://jaablog.jaablaw.com/categories/263/ostrow.aspx

    Also, he was dumb enough to walk through airport security carrying cocaine:

    He is not shall we say, the brightest light on the circuit.

      Fascinating. What’s the story behind that blog?

        I think it was started by a local defense attorney who felt that the Broward State Attorney’s Office was unusually harsh on petty criminals and deferential towards affluent defendants.

        Drug residue cases are pushed to the max where mostly poor, minority defendants are involved. Conversely, the Fort Lauderdale Police Chiefs wife got a few months of institutionalized care after popping off several handgun rounds at him. Most normal citizens would be doing hard time for attempted murder.

        Repeat similar scenarios for 5 or 6 years and you have the gist of it. It’s been relatively quiet lately, I think because the author & his wife have a new baby.

        I have seen him called out by other attorneys as crucifying some judges while seeming to miss the but of others and also for wasting time posting instead of working client cases.

        My fascination has been with the vitriol and juvenile behavior that comes with anonymous commenting, even from attorneys, prosecutors and maybe even some of the judges themselves. In addition, the lack of professionalism displayed by the judiciary, in various forms, is displayed in a manner that keeps me coming back in utter disbelief (see Ana Gardiner, Larry Korb & Larry Seidlin, et al).

    Those same clients: “if you take my case pro bono it’s gonna be all over the news. It’s gonna make you rich! You’ll be more famous than Jose Baez or Scott Greenfield!”

    This is the kind of lawyer that makes me want to punch lawyers in the mouth. Let him stay in Florida. Asshat Esquire.
