051 – Upcoming Charity Chili Cook-off with Lawyer Talk and the Parker Lee Foundation



It’s a Chili Bowl cook-off for a great cause in Central Ohio – and you’re invited! Join Steve, Jeff and Jared as they sit down with Kim Lee Niswander, the CEO and Co-founder of the Parker Lee Foundation, a non-profit organization in Columbus that promotes charitable groups and local causes which help improve the quality of life for disabled and disadvantaged children in the Central Ohio area.

The guys talk about how Yavitch & Palmer began partnering with the Parker Lee Foundation and Directions for Youth, the story behind why the Eric J. Yavitch Scholarship Fund was created, how doing good makes you feel good, the PBR10k, strategies for winning Chili cook-offs – and, how PLF is unique: they are a true “grass roots” charity with a difference: 100% of every dollar they raise goes directly to the recipients. And the PLF events are a lot of fun! This year’s Chili Bowl will take place at the Grandview Theater on Sunday November 25th – come for a great day of watching OSU football on a huge screen, eating awesome chili, drinking beer, hanging with the Lawyer Talk gang and being part of the show – and feeling great while we’re raising money for a great cause!

050 – Prosecutors are Lawyers Too….Just Ask Emily



Lawyers talking with the enemy. Swapping courtroom drama with a 10-year veteran prosecutor.  Reflections on murder, mayhem, and whether juries notice a male lawyer’s shoes as much as they notice a female lawyer’s shoes.  Emily shares her unique perspective on juries, defense lawyers and the justice system. Learn how (and why) she got out alive and survived the courtroom battlefield.

049 – The Art of a Trial



Witnesses are against you, the judge won’t admit your evidence – so how does a lawyer win what seems to be an impossible trial?

Steve, Jeff and Jared worked on a felony trial together and give you a blow-by-blow inside look at what actually went down. If you are a lawyer – you should listen to this. If you might need to hire a lawyer to defend you in court – you should definitely listen to this.

The guys talk focus groups, investigators, how to prepare, the importance of understanding people and reading the room, voir dire, mishaps with courthouse alarms, the pressure cooker of the courtroom, lawyer egos – and how to check them at the door.

047 – Scooters + OSU Football = Tailgating Squared



Thinking about taking one of the new Lime or Bird scooters for a spin and want to know which is better? We tested both and give you a head-to-head comparison.

This weekend is a 3-day weekend, the start of OSU football – normally we are talking about red cups and tailgating – but now that these new scooters are now all over OSU’s campus and in the mix, we predict that this will create a “perfect storm” of increased mayhem.

Steve, Jeff and Jared talk reckless operation, bicycle law vs. scooter law, and good and bad scooter riders and why they remind us of the movie “Twister”.

Enjoy the holiday weekend and the start of football season! But if you end up needing help, call us:  614-224-6142

046 – Scooters of Prey: The Millennial Force



“Everybody run – it’s a flock of Birds!” And then someone throws a Lime in the mix and pandemonium breaks out!

Have you seen the scooters that are littering the city lately? Or perhaps you’ve witnessed – or been part of – one of the hair-raising stunts and near-collisions (and collisions)? The Bird and Lime scooters are sharing the roadways and sidewalks now in Columbus and many other cities – and throughout OSU’s campus. What are the legal and safety ramifications that surround this newer, Uber-ized, mostly unregulated mode of transportation?

Steve, Jeff and Jared cover everything from reckless operation, liability and what the problem is with trying to use a scooter to avoid a DUI – to DBDs (designated Bird drivers), bunny hopping, Bird-pooling, Bird-Littering –  just who are these battery-charging elves?! – and Bird vs. Lime: when in doubt, joust!

(Spoiler alert: there will be a show-and-tell in part 2, so stay tuned!)

 


045 – The Blinsky Chronicles -14- It’s A Wrap



The story of the chronicles have unfolded – so what’s next? Hint: a lot more fun stuff!

Years after the Nemesis, Agent X, a jaw-dropping verdict and the probation officer from hell, find out what’s been going on with Jared – and what’s next. Steve, Jeff and Jared talk losing fingers, “regular guy” clothes, the last Blockbuster, classic movies like Easy Money, Demolition Man, and Blade, making your own tools to fix things and how farm boy ingenuity helped the Americans win WWII, the Circle of Trust, OSU students and the new electric birds descending upon Columbus.

Steve, Jeff and Jared will be featuring many new people on Lawyer Talk with stories you won’t want to miss. And the guys share some of the fun new things they are planning, including hitting the streets  – maybe both literally and figuratively (you’ll soon see what we mean) – so stay tuned!

044 – The Blinsky Chronicles -13- The Pen and Probation – 30 Days in the Hole Part 2



Jared talks about the realities of federal prison and not having any control of your life, then what house arrest and probation were like. The guys talk strip searches, prison guards gone bad, when 30 days is too much and 5 years is not enough, doing weekly drops, when your probation officer is pulling for you to fail – and how to really disappoint him.
