tsk, tsk, tsk...u guys are going about this all the wrong way!
He's a lawyer. Offer to send him a slice of all the mad cheddah the sponsors are coughing up. A "kick-back," if you will. That'll shut him up.
Ya know, you grease his back and he'll grease yours.
...or is it the palm that gets "greased?" ...backs get "scratched," right? I'm not sure, either way, make a pass at him.
See if he gets a hard-on.
I am not a lawyer. Choosing to follow my advice may get you sent to jail and/or the electric chair. Proceed With Caution.
