#LawyerSuccess with Richard “Dickie” Scruggs…?

Dickie Scruggs may not be the person that you ever want to imitate your career after, we mean, like, ever.  He was convicted of bribing a federal judge, was disbarred and sent to prison.  We agree that part is not exactly a success story.  His real success comes after he was released from prison.  Oxford Magazine wrote an article on his life now, post-prison and scandal. In late 2007 the FBI raided Scruggs’ office, he faced (and was ultimately convicted of) a federal judicial bribery charge.  Not only that, his addiction issues spilled out into the public light during it all. Richard Scruggs has not had an easy road, himself being the largest obstacle at times.  But from the whole negative experience, he says he has learned so many things.  He also states,”I’m happier today than I have ever been before,” how is that possible?  Mr. Scruggs has left the terrible times as far behind in his mind as he can and focused on the future. But there is more than that. He let that difficult time lead him to a better place in his life.  One where he let his family in and started to give back to the community around him. When you have undergone a difficult time, has it made you a better person? Perhaps put you in a better place? We would love for you to share on our Facebook page here. Dickie Scruggs shares one of his favorite quotes from Gone with the Wind:”Until you’ve lost your reputation, you never realize what a burden it was or what freedom really is.”  So no matter what you...
Volunteering and Sponsorship

Volunteering and Sponsorship

Why are volunteering and sponsorship important to the Cady Family? We are honored to be included among the top litigation support providers in the country. We appreciate the opportunity that we have had to grow in this community. During our time period of becoming a pillar of the court reporting community in Ohio, we appreciate all of the resources we have at our disposal. We have gained knowledge and insight from the CMBA, the NNRC and long-time veterans of the industry just to name a few. When someone gives you a precious gift, you want to give back to others so that they can experience the same. That is why volunteering is so important to us. We volunteer on an ongoing basis with the CMBA so that the youth of Cleveland can have an even better chance at a bright future. We volunteer with the NNRC so that we can continually foster advancement in our own industry which helps litigators do their job even better. We are happy to give of our time and resources so that in small ways we can repay what we have been given....
