Today’s Brief, the daily news round-up, picks up this item from the ABA Journal about the quirky Web site of the Colorado firm Powers Phillips. Reporter Lori Patel writes: “One needs a sense of humor in dealing with Colorado firm Powers Phillips. In fact, the firm insists upon it. As a sort of quirky screening device, it has created a Web site so firmly tongue-in-cheek that some readers may have trouble swallowing. With the site organized in categories such as ‘sleazeball attorneys’ and ‘agonized clients,’ the firm’s uppity women and token males apologize in advance to readers they may offend. The attorneys add that they take their work — but not themselves — quite seriously.”
