The Pitbull

I can't say that I'm particularly interested in the divorce of Nicolas Sarkozy's brother and his wife Charlotte, but what I do love is the nickname of Charlotte's American divorce lawyer. 'Hard-hitting' attorney Robert Cohen is apparently also known as "The Pitbull". Now why can't we have divorce lawyers with nicknames like that over here? Damn non-confrontational lawyers, mediation, collaborative law and all that namby-pamby nonsense, let's have family lawyers with names like "The Shark", "The Python" or "The Man-Eater".


  1. Bob is a tough lawyer (I had a case against him when I was at Rosenman, and another against his partner several years later, at my own firm). To be honest, I never heard that moniker attached to him until I saw the article in the Telegraph.

    There's a divorce lawyer in Tulsa, Oklahoma, though, who uses the logo "Bulldog Divorce."

    Take a look!

  2. How about new legislation to curb the excessive visciousness of such divorce lawyers?

    ...a new Dangerous Dogs Act...
