    She’s been around way too long. Can you now get hubby to retire as well ! He’s about as tiresome as tiresome gets. His knowledge of the law I find lacking as well as his temperament and intelligence. Two for the road would be nice.

    Kept everybody waiting long enough… Alfreda would make a better replacement if Rifkin or Greenwald don’t pull a fast one. It’s Broward and any spot is fair game.

    Greenwald and Rifkin are big leaguers they will stick to Circuit. Watch out for snipers like Sammy boy though.

    Between two Robinsons sitting on the bench they’ve been pulling down quite a sum and had a long run at that.

    Now if only Mike Robinson would only retire ! I wouldn’t count on it though anytime soon. These husband and wife judicial teams in Broward are too much. Especially with the bad attitudes and entitlement problems exhibited by these two planks.

    Great gig for an underachiever or one that doesn’t have much of a practice; don’t have to work much at all and don’t have the responsibility of the Circuit Court judge. Career government punks will be jumping all over this one.

      Just maybe she’s too dumb and just didn’t make the cut ! Ever think of that instead of crying foul and sour grapes about why she’s not just handed something because she’s a minority ??? What she ever done to distinguish herself anyway ???

      SO SWEET to see Patyl getting caught…once when she had been given a waiver of prosecution signed by a victim of a case, she accused the defense attorney in open court of “victim says the def. attorney pressured him into signing this judge”. So unlikely, and the attorney always wondered later what Ouflakyan had said or done to the victim to make him change his position.

      Again, such sweet news this morning

        Always thought she had some kind of problem … Besides just looking like she was whacked out most of the time. It must be her caseload. Lol

    “I think you’ve been misled in a sense by counsel for the petitioner who insist that this has to be something that Mr. Di Pietro himself specifically did,” Winship said.

    A lawyer stating to the court opposing counsel is misleading you is an inapproriate comment.

    What happened to Abalown and Negron ? Guess they’ve had enough of the PD Grind ? Just two more veterans calling it quits ? How many does this make now ?

    Apparently switching Reidy to early release unit & spreading his cases among all the other lawyers yet supervisors still sit around with zero caseload…. well naturally that’s going to have an effect on some people

    I heard there’s at least five or six lawyers in that office who have zero caseload and despite Bob Wills running around looking busy all day there’s very little that they do that requires them to not touch a case

    Exactly what does Bob Wills do besides ride it out ? Thanks to Reidy, we’ve all got a lot more crap to shovel while supervisors do nothing.

      Keep an eye for it….

      While everyone is asleep at the wheel, Howard will not qualify to run for Public Defender and Gordon Weeks will file right before the deadline for qualifying and he will be Broward Public Defender Gordon Weeks. Howard will, as always, will have the last laugh, he created a black public defender without an ounce of bloodshed. His legacy of righting racial wrongs in this County will be cemented in and everyone will sit with their collective jaws on the ground.

        Republican’s will have something to say about that. Get ready for a regime change. They won’t see it coming.

      It’s not Finkelstein’s fault there isn’t any money available for pay raises. This is a problem created by Republicans in Tallahassee. Goofball, get a clue.

        Supervisors are getting top pay, try 120 and up and have no caseload while the rest of us carry the load and get zip but the same old excuses why we can’t get raises because there’s no money in the budget. It’s getting old fast and everybody knows the real reason. Hypocrisy doesn’t even come close to what’s going on .

    The PD office would have money for pay raises if did not have a top-heavy administrative staff who never step into a courtroom and do little but drink coffee and say “yes boss” to Howard. That is why the best attorneys in the office leave for private practice, run for judge, or get fired. Howard, should be ashamed of acting like a Republican and talking like a Democrat. Typical Broward PD hypocrisy.

    Howard cannot change the ineffective and outdated employment patterns in his office because that group of administrative elites know all of the secrets to his regimen and maintain his power with the system. That is why Howard demotes and eventually fires anyone who disagrees with the status quo at the office. No room for disagreement because it threatens the security of the dictatorship and those who feel entitled to the future throne. Is anyone in Tallahassee listening?

    Can someone please add up how much total money all of the administrators at the PD office make and post it here for all to see?

      If it were 2 cents it would be too much. None of them have any cases and do next to nothing but make our lives miserable.

    Howard: Can you please explain why I’m being buried in cases while my supervisor has no cases at all. I’m hearing this same complaint from my fellow attorneys in the Law Offices of The Public Defender.

      HOWIE CAMP IS CRAM FULL OF DO NOTHING SUPERVISORS WHO ARE PRAYING THEY CAN RIDE IT OUT TO RETIREMENT WITHOUT DOING ANYTHING BUT SUBSTANTIATING THEIR POSITIONS BY CREATING PROBLEMS FOR THE REST OF US. MEANWHILE THEY HAVENT WORKED A CASE IN YEARS AND DONT HAVE A CLUE WHAT THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT. CHEAP SHOT BUT TRUE.

      What ? Still no answer from Howard. I think the above question addressed to Help me Howard is pertinent and worthy of an answer from an elected official as PD. With all due respect, it’s a question that warrants some kind of explanation. I’ve always been a supporter for the good things Howard has done, but I think this question needs to be addressed. 🙂

    Question – When was the only time during the past 10 years that Broward PD administrators have been seen inside of a courtroom?

    Answer – Brannon’s civil case against the FInk in Dade County. As you know, it is all about the Howard!

    It’s to the point now where Finkelstein is a laughing stock in his own office. The rest of them are just desperately hanging on. Bet the ride is about to get a little rough from here on out. How they are going to substantiate these kind of salaries with zero caseloads is going to present a problem.

    If anything Howard is too excepting of the mediocrity that surrounds him. He’s kind of stuck between a rock and a hard place because as his lieutenants age out and approach retirement, their only concern is that they do as little as possible as they skate out the door. Lazy and inept are just two adjectives that come to mind when describing their attitudes towards work. As they stroll in at 11 and leave by 2, handling any cases of their own would be the last thing on their minds. It’s too bad because it’s had a marked effect on the morale of the rest of the office . But Howard is powerless to do anything about it apparently.

    They are all Schreiber hangovers that Howard has an obligation to support.
    They do the same as when Schreiber was there.

    Morale couldn’t be at a lower point ! I don’t think Finkelstein even knows what’s going on in his own office and I don’t think his supervisors want him to know. Don’t look for the office to have your back because it won’t be there. Looking more like they want to stab u in the back than anything else.
