In our November edition of the Lawyer of the Month competition, we brought you three male candidates who just didn’t give a damn. We offered our readers an anti-military law professor, but he wasn’t able to rock the vote. Next up, we had a family law judge who beat his daughter on camera, but even this villainous act wasn’t enough to take the win.

At the end of the day, the man who didn’t want the title won it in a landslide victory, with 65 percent of the vote….

It’s fitting that we would announce Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft partner Ira Schacter as the winner of November’s Laywer of the Month title just days after the Biglaw firm announced its own bonuses. It gave our commenters the chance to go to town on CWT’s infamous partner with one-liners like these:

How much extra of a bonus do the associates get to work with Ira Schacter? Or do they pay for the honor?”

Some commenters discussed Schacter’s ex-Playboy-bunny, ex-fiancée, and the hearing aids that he allegedly denied his deaf daughter. This is why you can’t have nice things, Ira. This is what happens when you try to rig the voting in one of our polls.

Compared to Cadwalader’s less-than-enviable bonus scale, the title of ATL’s A**hole Lawyer of the Month is most certainly something Schacter can be proud of.
