Wahlstrom Associates will be co-hosting an exclusive conference on taxable damages litigation

Thats the headline of this unique little conference Wahlstrom & Associates will be hosting, along with our friends at Brook Hollow Financial, on the sleeping giant of taxable damages litigation and settlement strategies.

Lets face it, how many settlement professionals and trial lawyers are tired of the same, old, dry, boring and pointless seminars that promise much and deliver little? Even more so they  are tired of having their time and money wasted, as well as going to hotels so big  they never get a chance to network with the people they went to meet. Plus, who wouldn't want to have some fun, get some sunshine, enjoy themselves and really learn how to launch  their professional practice into a powerful new area filled with amazing potential?

The area of taxable damage litigation, coupled with the topic of showing trial lawyers and their advisors how to structure their legal fees, is the sleeping giant in litigation and professional practice. In fact it is estimated the taxable damage litigation market dwarfs the non-taxable, personal injury market, yet only a tiny fraction of lawyers and settlement experts make any effort to understand it and learn how to work in this important arena.

That said, then I think it is clear that it is time for lawyers and settlement professinals alike to take a break from the usual and come to Scottsdale, Arizona on April 12th and 13th and join us for an exclusive, limited attendance event held at the hip, mid-century modern Hotel Valley Ho.

The two day meeting will allow attorneys to receive up to 8 hours of CLE  and financial professionals up to 10 hours of CE credit, all while networking with and learning from top professionals, staying at a 5 star  boutique hotel and even, do we dare say it, attending a cocktail party at the classic Trader Vic's, all for far less then you would pay for your standard Gulag type convention and meeting elsewhere. Meeting people face to face, having fun, learning something that puts rocket fuel in your practice, all at prices that don't make you weep when the credit card bill arrives; what could be more old school than that?

The Mid Century Modern Classic, Hotel Valley Ho is the host location for the

As I mentioned, the hosts for this event will be Wahlstrom & Associates, the nations leading experts in managing taxable damage litigation, and Brook Hollow Financial, the industry innovators in structured legal fees and sophisticated solutions for trial lawyer financial strategies. Together they we will be bringing the top legal, tax, trial and management experts from around the country to discuss the amazing practice building opportunities for trial lawyers, as well as the settlement and tax experts that work with them,. We intend to cover the areas of taxable damage litigation such as employment law, discrimination cases, wrongful imprisonment, environmental claims, property loss on the Gulf Coast and Qui Tam/Whistleblower cases.

Trader Vic's, location for our cocktail party and mixer

However, more than just a conference on what this area of law is all about, we will also have segments designed to show lawyers how to start KEEPING the money and fees you make through the use of structured legal fees. I mean what lawyer wouldn't  like to learn how to make fully taxable fees either be taxed at lower rates, or even some cases, tax deductible using conservative, insured strategies offered by the largest financial providers in the US?

Featured speakers and topic areas include:

"The tax and legal foundation for taxable damage cases and claims",presented by the man who literally wrote the book, Attorney Robert Wood.

"Employment, discrimination and wrongful termination litigation", presented by the NYC powerhouse firm of Outten and Golden.

"Environmental and contamination cases", presented by the Civil Action Attorney, Jan Schlichtmann.

"A timely insiders look at the Gulf Coast claims process and litigation ",presented by Frederick T. "Rick" Kuykendall III of the Murphy Law Firm.

"How to structure a legal fee on a taxable damage case and build a financially strong practice", presented by Brook Hollow Financial of Chicago, IL, one of the nations leaders in innovative solutions for trial lawyers.

"Managing a multi-claimant case using 468B trusts and protecting the rights of your clients", presented by Mark Wahlstrom, President of Wahlstrom Associates, experts in taxable damage litigation management.

"Using new media to build, promote and grow your practice", presented by Scott Drake, host and producer for The Legal Broadcast Network.

"Allstate Financial, Dan Durbin, Senior Manager of Allstate Structured Settlements, speaking on the types of non-qualified annuity cases Allstate will accept and the expansion into additional areas such as celebrity endorsement fees."

" What happens when you need to liquidate or unwind a taxable case" presented by Attorney Matt Bracy of Settlement Capital.

Plus many more speakers from companies such as Kenmare Assignment Company First Capital, Liberty Mutual, Synergy Settlement Services, Sequence Media Group and others.

BP Oil Spill fund, $20 billion and a lot of questions

In todays Speaking of Justice we call again on noted mass tort and environmental attorney Frederick "Rick" Kuykendall to discuss the recently announced $20 billion BP Oil Spill damage fund. This fund, established through negotiations from the Obama White House is unprecedented in US legal history as a private fund created to specifically compensate injured individuals and businesses in the Gulf Coast region. BP CEO Tony Hayward Associated Press Photo

Rick Kuykendall is uniquely qualified to discuss this case and is a member of the Gulf Coast Litigation Group that is a partnership of some of the leading lawyers from Alabama, Louisiana, Texas, Mississippi and Florida. In today's three part conversation, we first look at how this was set up, the appointment of Kenneth Feinberg to act as special master or trustee and the impact of this fund on pending and potential litigation in the states, counties and cities of the impacted Gulf Coast region.

The unprecedented scope of this disaster, coupled with the potential size of this case, called for bold and creative thinking as opposed to the legal feeding frenzy we have been witnessing over the last six weeks. While the legal issues related to the BP Oil Spill litigation will continue to be refined and defined over the coming months, there is little question that the creation of the Oil Spill Damage fund is a major event in US legal history and is going to be followed closely on LBN.

Watch for part two of this interview later today featuring Attorney Tom Bilek of the Bilek firm in Houston, TX in which he covers his arguements in court today in New Orleans on the issue of protecting workers who are assisting in the oil clean up.

Also, part three of this discussion will cover today's hearing on Capital Hill with BP Chief Executive Tony Hayward and the statements by several law makers who refer to the fund as " A shakedown" and distortion of the US legal system.


Google's new "caffeine" search makes LBN more powerful then ever

As part of today's roll out of the newest and most powerful change to the Google search engine, the Caffeine update, ( their name, not mine ) creates an entirely new and more relevant search technique that will dramatically improve search relevance.

You can read about the details of the change by clicking here for the InformationWeek article.

Why this is important and exciting for Legal Broadcast Network and our clients is that this new methodology favors those of us who produce original, daily, relevant content that is widely syndicated and viewed and shared across multiple platforms. We already dominated most of the key search parameters and metrics we have clients or shows in, but with this modification we can now expect to have an even more immediate impact for clients looking to create original programming and have that programming get great search engine results.

I have used this recent example before, but take a look at our content and interviews on the BP Oil Spill Litigation. We have done two interviews, TWO, and when you go to Google today and type in BP Oil Spill Litigation our content shows up in 4 of the 10 page one results. In video search we are TEN for TEN in page one results.

Do you have any idea how much it costs to obtain those type of results from your typical "Search Engine Savant" who tells you they can get you front page Google results or what it cost in pay per click? I can tell you it costs a lot and even more in line with this commentary, most of the SEO junk content that was on page one last week is now pushed back even further.

My point being this. The power of Google, Bing and to a lesser degree Yahoo to stay ahead of the SEO scammers and game players who work the system for short term gain has never been more obvious. The strategy of paying a firm for SEO is going to become a more and more discredited practice as the months go by and firms are going to have to realize they need a comprehensive, thoughtful online media strategy that is centered around original content, consistent posting/broadcasting and on going media development.

Anything less is destined to fail and be rendered irrelevant by Google.

At Legal Broadcast Network and in our LB Network Studios division we do nothing but create original, high quality content and show people how to syndicate it and get it in their prospects hands. We have commentator packages that start as low as $500 a month all the way up to full enterprise solutions from LB Networks at $10,000 per month. Which ever fits for you will be obvious, but at what point in time are people going to stop being jerked around by SEO firms and take control of their message and social media campaigns? Give us a call or sit back and watch your competitors and associates run past you to number one in the search engines.



" A stupid and futile gesture" or the city council boycotts of Arizona.

Well, today brings us another prime example of a city council with too much time on it's hands, when the city of Austin, TX decided to join the moralists of Los Angeles and San Francisco and passed resolutions that eliminate contracts or forbid doing business with Arizona.

You can read the Houston Chronicle report here.

What cracks me up, and brought to mind the boys of Animal House, is what a stupid and futile gesture this is and how incredibly typical of your standard city council, in that they decided to dictate economic policy for an entire city when "two people showed up to comment for the resolution" and the city projects to spend a grand total of $2500 in the coming year on a seminar on Phoenix. I could almost see the council standing up and charging out of the room with no one following them like John Belushi.

Couple this with our esteemed US Attorney General Eric Holder admitting today in front of a congressional hearing that "he hadn't had time to read the bill", but that of course hasn't stopped him from saying it might require legal action from the Federal government and calling it dangerous.

Look, agree or disagree with the bill, but how about before you decide to file legal actions, pass economic sanctions or other equally "stupid and futile gestures" you read the bill?

Click here for a full copy of Arizona Bill 1070.

It's only ten pages and if you read it you will be one of the few people who actually have and are thus somewhat qualified to comment on it. My single biggest source of amazement in all of this is the number of lawyers who express an opinion on this law, but have failed to actually read the law. Again, you may read it and still disagree with it, which is totally your  right but at least you don't fall into the Animal House category of commentators.

Could we at least start to have an educated conversation on this instead of symbolic gestures of "support" or "disapproval" from both sides of the issue who haven't bothered to read the bill or visit the southern half of Arizona.

As an Arizona resident I can attest to the sometimes wacky nature of the standard Arizona state house politician. However, there is nothing funny about a situation where people are smuggled across the most dangerous terrain in the US to die in the desert, or be murdered, raped, kidnapped, extorted and blackmailed, all so businesses can have a cheap source of easily exploited labor and thugs can become rich exploiting these peoples economic desperation. There is also nothing funny about ranchers being murdered by drug smugglers on their own land, cops being shot and killed by illegals and the massive cost to the states as a result of the Federal governments failure to secure the borders.

So go ahead Austin, Los Angeles and San Francisco, pass your resolutions and keep your money. At least Arizona is attempting to restore the rule of law before our Southwestern border cities start to resemble the war zones of Juarez and other border cities that have become killing fields in the control of  the drug and human smuggling gangs.

Until then, enjoy our friends from Animal House and realize that the actions of most of the city councils and others municipal groups are just about as mindless and futile and their actions have now become a source of amusement here in Arizona. Almost 75% of the state is in full support of the bill, which when you consider Arizona is over 40% Hispanic means that over 30% of the Hispanics in the state support the bill as well. Could it be because they know the dangerous, ugly turn human smuggling has taken in the last few years and that if it remains unchecked the human and financial cost of continued Federal neglect of the border could destroy our state.

Read the bill...and enjoy John Belushi. I apologize for the few expletives, but it's nothing our last two Vice Presidents haven't said more than once.




This situation requires a stupid gesture sound bite



BP Oil Spill litigation team, a new, ongoing commentary on the network

The BP Oil Spill, already shaping up to be one of the nations worst environmental disasters in terms of total dollars of damage, is going to be the focus of an ongoing series of updates, commentaries and information from the lawyers heading up one of the most prominent legal teams.

The two videos we are posting here are featuring Frederick "Rick" Kuykendall of the Murphy Firm of Baltimore, MD and also a native of Fairhope, AL. If you are looking for the most current and comprehensive legal view of what is occurring on the BP Oil Spill litigation from one of the top lawyers in that area of specialty, be sure to watch both videos and come back weekly for updates on the case, litigation, judicial rulings or information on how you as a property owner or attorney in the Gulf Coast region can hear more from Attorney Kuykendall.

Frederick Kuykendall III has practiced law for over 25 years. The Murphy Firm, MD, along with Frederick Kuykendall was listed in 2009 Edition in Maryland’s Super Lawyers, and he has been included in multiple editions in The Best Lawyers in America and is AV rated by Martindale Hubble.  Kuykendall has been lead or co-lead trial and settlement counsel in cases resulting in over two billion dollars in relief to injured parties, in the areas of Class Action Litigation,  Environmental Litigation, Insurance and Consumer Fraud, Personal Injury and Wrongful Death, Prescription Medications, and Products Liability. He is a member and was appointed a Commissioner of the Alabama State Bar, serving on a variety of committees, and most recently was Co-Chair of its’ Judicial Liaison Committee.

Nationally, Kuykendall is also a member of The American  Association for Justice (formerly ATLA), serving throughout the years on its most important committees, such as Public Affairs. Kuykendall is a member of the Leaders forum and was the recipient of The National Award for Special Skills as an Advocate. Other notable accomplishments include, his longstanding position on the Board of Directors of The Committee for Civil Rights Under Law and the Board of Directors of The Trial Lawyers for Public Justice. He has served on the Alabama Governor’s Commission on Environmental Initiatives and is an honorary member of  the Board of Directors of Mobile Baykeepers. He helped found the Pensacola chapter of The Riverkeepers, and has a long standing commitment to protecting the environment. He is also a frequent speaker at state and national seminars and was recently appointed to the Board of Governors of the Maryland Association of Justice.

Kuykendall has extensive experience litigating environmental damage cases, and has extensive experience litigating against the oil industry.  In 2009, he was co-lead counsel against Constellation Energy in an action that resulted in pollution abatement and damages to citizens whose water had been contaminated by chemicals.  In major cases against Weyerhauser Paper, Shell, Exxon, Hoechst Celanese, Conoco and others, Kuykendall has demonstrated a "no fear, no nonsense" approach.

" We are witnessing the beginning of what may very well become the largest environmental disaster in the history of the United States. The source of the spill is still spewing upwards of 50 million gallons of oil a day into the spawning grounds of shrimp, snapper and oysters in areas of the Gulf waters. If the spill isn't contained, it will soon threaten critical gulf beaches and marshlands. The impact on individuals and small businesses still recovering from a series of hurricanes is incalculable. The oil industry, like the financial industry, asked the citizens that populate the Gulf coast to trust them with our most valuable resource and they breached that trust. They must be held accountable and I, along with the group of dedicated environmental lawyers, have the skills and resources to do just that. While we all pray for a good ending, the courthouse doors of the Gulf Coast must be opened to protect our citizens and ecosystems."

Kuykendall’s commitment to environmental concerns is evident. He was appointed by the governor of Alabama to a select Commission on the Environment, is an Honorary Member of the Board of Directors of Mobile Bay Keepers and Co-Founder of the Pensacola River Keepers. Combining his concern for the environment with his legal expertise and resources Kuykendall has successfully brought polluters to justice. 

Be watching The Legal Broadcast Network each week for this comprehensive review and analysis of the BP Oil spill and the legal issues surrounding it.


My 2010 NFL mock draft or what I do in my spare time

In yet another of my personality quirks, I annually treat the NFL draft as a minor holiday and spend hours with my son Eli lining up our draft picks and projections for the Arizona Cardinals. This has evolved into our latest objective, which is to see which of us can get the most picks correct and top Mel Kiper Jr and Todd McShay in their projections, proving that our part time analysis is at least as good as their year round expertise. Lets face it, we work cheaper then they do, so lets see how our picks stack up this year:


Selection      Team                Mark                      Eli                Kiper                  McShay

1st              Rams             Sam Bradford                               Bradford

2nd             Lions           Ndamukong Suh                               Suh

3rd             Tampa          Gerald McCoy                                 McCoy

4th             Redskins       Trent Williams                              T. Williams

5th             Chiefs           Russell Okung                                Berry

6th             Seattle            C.J. Spiller                                    Okung

7th             Browns            Eric Berry                                     Morgan

8th             Oakland       Anthony Davis                                 Clausen

9th             Buffalo         Bryan Baluga                                   Davis

10th           Jaguars        Earl Thomas*                                  Spiller

11th           Bronco's      Maurkice Pouncey                            McClain

12th           Miami            Dan Williams                                   Kindle

13th           San Fran      Joe Hayden                                      Baluga

14th           Seattle         Dez Bryant                                      Thomas

15th           N.Y. Giants   Rolando McClain                              Weatherspoon

16th           Titans           Derrick Morgan                                Paul

17th           San Fran       Mike Iupati                                      Hayden

18th           Steelers        Kyle Wilson                                     Pouncey

19th           Falcon's      Jason Pierre Paul                               Graham

20th           Texans        Kareem Jackson                                Matthews

21th           Bengals      Jermain Greshom                               Bryant

22nd          Patriots      Brandon Graham                                Greshom

23rd           Packers      Rodger Saffold                                   Iupati

24th           Eagles          Tim Tebow**                                   Wilson

25th           Ravens         Jared Odrick                                    Thomas

26th           Cardinals    Nick Weatherspoon                          D. Williams

27th           Cowboys    Charles Brown                                  Saffold

28th           Chargers     Ryan Matthews                                Jackson

29th           NY Jets       Sergio Kindle                                     Joseph

30th           Vikings       Devin McCourtney                              Tebow

31st           Colts          Dymerious Thomas                             Hughes

32nd          Saints        Jerry Hughes                                      Odrick


The toughest calls are the Bills, who have an entirely new front office that has never drafted and the team is a mess, Jacksonville which clearly wants to trade down, Baltimore because they always pick the best talent regardless of need and Seattle because of two picks and a brand new staff in place drafting. I believe that teams will always reach for offensive tackles so expect all of the possible top talent to go quick and to even have a few filter into the end of the first round to restock Green Bay and Dallas. The run on offensive tackles is going to push Jimmy Clausen into a free fall if the Bills don't take him, which I pray they don't.

Seattle with their new front office is going to look to get good on one side of the ball and drafting where they are they need to get impact players. Grabbing CJ Spiller and Dez Bryant would give Pete Carroll his QB of the future and two big time home run threats to rebuild an anemic offense. They will go get their OT and defensive players in the later rounds.

Buffalo is in no man's land and will have to decide if they want to finally draft a real offensive tackle or grab a NT in Dan Williams that is solid but won't win them one extra game this year. Count on Chan Gailey pushing to build his offense and he needs a tackle badly.

Jacksonville will give Philly the chance to come up and get the impact safety they desperately need in Thomas and allow Jacksonville to move down the board and set up the Tim Tebow pick. He's not the best pick for anyone at that point, but he literally could be the reason football is saved in Jacksonville and the team isn't moved. It's a no brainer at that point in the big picture, much the way giving Jake Plummer a huge contract in Arizona was key in winning the  stadium tax vote that finally built the Cardinals new stadium. Economic reality often over rides football decisions and he could turn out to be a good pro quarterback.

Baltimore is slotted in every other mock draft as taking another receiver, which makes little sense given the off season trades. However, there will be talent there for the Ravens but I see them going defensive line or corner here with Jared Odrick looking like a Raven to me.

The Cardinals will have a choice between Sergio Kindle and Nick Weatherspoon, but I think they are happy with their picks last year, Cody Brown and Will Davis and that they know they have a huge hole at inside linebacker. Weatherspoon could start right away and dramatically upgrade the position by being a three down linebacker that fills the Dansby hole right out of the box with even more upside then Dansby had.

Anyway you look at it, the end of the round is a crap shoot, but I like my chances over McShay and Kiper, the one that will be tough to beat is Eli.


The Annuity News Network, our latest broadcast venture

I am pleased to announce that The Legal Broadcast Network has entered into a production agreement to develop and produce for The Shurwest Financial Group a unique Network broadcasting platform titled The Annuity News Network. This production concept was developed by our creative and development team in our LB Networks division and is the first of several similarly creative broadcasting and marketing platforms.

We will be announcing further details of the channel, the shows, commentary and audience but the launch date is set for May 3, 2010 at the location.

As The Legal Broadcast Network has expanded it's expertise and unique tools for video and audio broadcast, our companion skills of show development, production, syndication and SEO have grown exponentially as well. Our clients at Shurwest are looking forward to the cutting edge production, syndication and reach of our networks in educating their agents, clients and the general public about issues of interest in the annuity markets, a market conservatively estimated at $50 billion per year for all different varieties and brands of annuity contracts. This material will be non-infomercial, high quality informative content and we look forward to this being the first of many niche, national networks to be rolled out in 2010.


Former Toyota Lawyer Dimitrios Biller interview demonstrates LBN's growing power 

Earlier today while watching CNN I was intrigued to see an interview with the former Toyota counsel, Dimitrios Biller, who had turned whistleblower and provided Congress with over 6000 documents related to the cover up, fraud and illegal activity. However, I was left frustrated by the shallowness of the interview, the lack of questions related to the legal obligations  and ethics he had as an attorney and other questions.

After switching off the interview I had our production staff at the Legal Broadcast Network work to contact Mr. Biller and bring him on our daily legal news show, Speaking of Justice, to try and obtain greater understanding of the issues this lawyer faced in first resigning his position at Toyota and then turning over this crucial evidence to Congress. In a matter of hours our staff not only had Dimitrios Biller on the phone, but conducted an intriguing 10 minute video interview that looked into his ethical duties as a lawyer, his knowledge of the alleged scheme and how he has held up under the constant pressure to sit on the information he had in his possession.

With in the hour of the interview our staff of editors and syndicators at Legal Broadcast Network had this video produced, aggregated and syndicated through our proprietary network and with in three hours we were the number one result on Google news and standard search under the topic's related to Toyota, Dimitrios Biller and other relevant searches. With in 48 hours after we further syndicate and distribute this unique, original content on a powerfully searched story such as the Toyota sudden acceleration crashes, I fully expect that LBN will totally dominate the video search metrics, news metrics and standard Google search.

It is clear that The Legal Broadcast Network has not only turned into one of the primary sources of original legal news content, but that virtually no online or specialty news organization can match our immediate and long term dominance in search engine results on the content we create.

Check out our  interview with Dimitrios Biller on the Toyota sudden acceleration crashes and the ethical and legal issues he faced as an attorney working inside Toyota. Judge for yourself, but shouldn't you be considering becoming a commentator or guest on The Legal Broadcast Network?


Air America Radio shuts down, is anyone suprised?

I have to confess when I read the headline from the NY Times online this evening I was taken aback. Not that Air America Talk Radio was shutting down, but that it still was operating. Somehow I figured the prior bankruptcy filing had ended the network, but apparently it has been struggling along with 100 affiliated stations carrying their content.

I don't bring this up to be cynical or critical of the concept. Just as I believed growing  up in Boston in the 1970s and 1980s that there was a place on radio in that city for conservative talk that challenged the absolute lock on news held by the overwhelmingly liberal media, I similarly believed that progressive or liberal talk radio deserved a shot in the market place over the last decade in which most talk shows are overwhelmingly conservative.

However, just because they deserve a shot doesn't mean that they would succeed with the over top liberalism and mediocre impersonation of what theyperceived conservative talk to be. The times I listened to Air America for the short period it was broadcast here in Phoenix, it was dull, predictable,formulaic and essentially unlistenable. It played to a very small, very narrow audience of super liberals and leftists and the fact is America is a center/right nation. Just as excessively conservative shows that have no sense of humor and take themselves too seriously typically fail, the same was and is true of liberal talk radio.

My point in bringing this up is that as traditional radio continues to suffer from a steady drain of advertisers and audience, the expensive hosts and shows are  shutting down, scaling back and being let go. However, online offerings that are economical, on demand and targeted to specific audiences are thriving. Of course I think my company, The Legal  Broadcast Network, is a perfect example of what is thriving and succeeding, but there are countless other demonstrations of how the online broadcast world is booming while "regular radio" collapses. Take a look at how popular Adam Corolla's online broadcast is every day, compared to the shut down of his successful show on CBS radio when his numbers didn't meet Howard Stern's numbers who immediately preceded him on CBS morning radio syndications. You also have guys like Bill Simmons, The Sports Guy, from ESPN who continues to expand his online radio broadcast and building off his solid career as a writer,  with his the online audience growing every week to listen to his unique take on sports. Adam Corolla

The lesson is that the real innovation and talent isn't occurring under the tent of the insanely expensive traditional radio format, it is occurring online and to a lesser degree on satellite as a result of the democratization of broadcasting. The monopoly that existed for years where you were forced to listen to boring talk radio, lousy top 40 and inane sports talk are over. People have choices now that never existed before, so offerings like Air America and other similarly dull concepts finally have to prove their value in a highly competitive marketplace where people can seek out the talent and topics that actually interest them. I will be very interested to see which if any of the Air America hosts or shows move to online and find success there were a smaller but more focused audience might attract sufficient sponsors.

So, if you are interested in becoming a commentator and taking a shot at broadcasting yourself, you just need to contact our studios and we will be happy to show you how to get started. It isn't easy but it is incredibly rewarding and I encourage you to look into it and get started. It is cheaper then you might imagine, but as Air America shows, you better bring something that people actually want to listen to or it will be a long, quiet, slow slide to obscurity.
