Legendary Lawyer/UT Football Supporter Has Died

He's off camera in this crazy clip when he conducted a deposition:



A Texas Monthly profile of him is a "great read" if you get bored over the holidays.

When I went to a UT/Baylor game last year I asked a security guard whose statute[*] was by Darrell Royal's. (The stadium wasn't open yet and I could only see the two statues from a distance through a gate.) He told me is was Joe Jamail and began to explain who he was. I interrupted him because he didn't need to waste his time explaining to me who he was.

The fact that his statue is right by Royal's is something I do not understand.

He has a statute?

Is it a special statute?

I was just waiting for Roy D Mercer or LBJ to jump in.

I went to a party at his house in the 70's. He had life size statues of his childred in the garden and a swimming pools with silver dollars on the bottom.. Pretty nice time..

I've been to my share of depositions like that. People like that make me laugh, and with rare exception (Jamail being one), people who behave like that do it because they're awful lawyers.

Does the statute have to do with Utes? Specifically, two Utes?

If so, contact me. I have experience in this area, and as a side...I some suits available for sale that are courtroom ready to wear.

If you watch this video on YouTube, there is another video posted titled Joe Jamail: Texas Trial-Blazer. It's more informative. Too bad he never went into politics...but he went for the money instead.
