How not to practice law: when representing one of the most high profile people in the nation, write incoherent letters with grammatical mistakes, go on TV and make dumb comments, hold bad press conferences and more

Unless you have been hiding in a cave for the last few weeks, you are now familiar with Roy Moore: the twice removed from the bench former judge, Senate candidate from Alabama.  You would think that having been a judge he would know some good lawyers who would be willing to represent him.  Yet, the lawyer doing most of the talking on his behalf has become a laughingstock for his inability to write coherently, his poor knowledge of the law and his TV appearances.  It has also been reported that he was disciplined in the past.

There are many stories on this, and you can Google more, but here are a few:

On his poorly written (that's being generous) demand letter to a news outlet (here, here, here and here).  For the news outlet's reply go to this story (called "Roy Moore’s Lawyer Gets Called A Moron In The Most Professional Way Possible").

On his disastrous appearance on TV in which he expressed his ignorance, at best, about how cultural differences might be an issue related to the accusations against Roy Moore (here and here).
