Can Someone Explain Gloria Allred To Me?
Chicago Now - Chicago's Real Law Blog ^ | November 14, 2011 | Michael Helfand, esquire

Posted on 11/14/2011 3:00:48 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

Gloria Allred is a founding partner of an employment law firm in California. But the cases she is known for being involved in – O.J. Simpson, Michael Jackson, Scott Peterson, Robert Blake – aren’t employment cases.

So why does Gloria Allred always seem to pop up in these national, high-profile cases? Sometimes she represents a witness, or the family of a victim. Sometimes she just enters the spotlight as a commentator – such as when she publicly expressed concern about the safety of Michael Jackson’s children. Other times it’s just strange like when she’s hanging out with the mistresses of Tiger Woods.

I was thinking about this last week when the Chicago woman spoke out and claimed she was sexually harassed by Herman Cain. Gloria Allred was standing next to her. There was no lawsuit, and they weren’t in L.A. For some reason she took the press conference to New York City (where it was hilariously hijacked by the Howard Stern Show). So what was Allred doing there? It just doesn’t make sense for a Chicago woman to hire a high profile L.A. attorney.

Gloria Allred may be an excellent attorney. Who knows? She certainly appears to be excellent at PR. She touts herself as a crusader for the rights of women and minorities. Is that really all this is? Does she actually do what she does to further her cause? She’s a lawyer and certainly she’s in this to make money, but there’s no lawsuit to be had here.

I’m just trying to figure her out. She obviously works hard. Maybe she’s making a ton of money on all this. But if so, who is paying her? Maybe she gets speaking fees for her clients and takes a cut. I really have no idea.

The first line on her personal website reads “Gloria Allred is the most famous woman attorney practicing law in the nation today.” Maybe her agenda is as simple as that. But to me, she is the female Jesse Jackson. She pops up any time there is controversy and her mere presence makes a lot of people ill.

If you can explain her beyond this please let me know. I really just don’t get it.

There was a segment about her on CBS's Sunday Morning in which they said she made about $200 million just in sexual harassment cases.

When the payday for Rachel Uchitel disappeared so did Gloria Allred.

So much for standing by her clients.

Parse her name: Gloria Allred

She is looking for some kind of glory in taking the side of the (Socialist) “red” all the time.

I think it is a made-up name, playing with stereotypes and word associations.

When your body has digested the food you eat and no more calories can be extracted, what remains must be expelled.

And that is how an Allred is born.

Trust me. There's money in this somewhere for both Gloria and her client.

Gloria Allred is a big flaming lib who does everything in her power(With the help of the DNC) to bring down Conservatives. She pretty much destroyed Meg Whitman’s campaign(Not like she stood a chance here in left wing Cali but still..) she claims its not about politics but then brings up politics at the press conference. She doesn’t give a damn about these people, all she wants is money and to get her botox injected face on television..the same goes for her daughter Lisa Bloom who is just as bad as her mama

She wanted to be Al Sharpton, but they already had one.

I can tell you this much. Those “have you ever etc etc” commercials on tv by lawyers they pay for the air time. Nothing like a free commercial. Want a free commercial? Be so controversial news cover you. A lawyer in my area has done it his entire career. He doesn't have to advertise because several times a month his face is on TV.

She’s a left wing feminist and media whore. To my knowledge, she’s never tried a case before and instead “tries” cases through the MSM.

Things like that go a long way in explaining why we are loosing jobs to places that do not allow such nonsense to be so handsomely rewarded.

The tacky tabloid stuff is advertising.

Instead of giving speeches at the local Rotary club or buying keywords on google, she takes the circus clients to get her name and face out there.

She's a hurdle over which Cain must leap. He is cool so far. She is a legitimate test (i.e. she has an impact...she has an effect).

Go Herman!

Just remember, the Left is at war with America...it is a cold war but what does that matter.

This is a civil war (and a cold one at that).

Go Herman...go Newt.

Easy.

A typical predatory lawyer missing the morality and ethics genes.

I can see how she would piss off any juror with an IQ over 70.
Seriously, has she ever argued a case in a real courtroom?

Not in the last 20 years.

She offends not only jurors, but judges as well.

The only time she’s allowed near a court, is to stand OUTSIDE on the courthouse steps, before an adoring media, to announce that she has in her hands a Complaint that’s about to filed. That’s it. No law and motion, no depos, no discovery, MSJ’s, MIL....nada.

And certainly no trials, jury or non-jury.
