Baker Donelson - Eugene Podesta Commits Malpractice, Absolutely Worst Most Unethical Lawyer

Eugene Podesta with the law firm of Baker Donelson represents three types of clients: 1) Doctors and Hospitals that commit malpractice by killing or mutilating people; 2) Unethical and Immoral Lawyers that commit legal malpractice against their poor clients causing huge financial loss or jail; and 3) Evil Large Corporations that dont care about people, only profits. In representing these three classes of refuse, Gene Podesta uses unethical and dishonest practices to ensure his wealthy clients are always protected from the little guy they injure or destroy. Several lawyers have commented that he abuses every rule of litigation to thwart justice, using his large firm to paper everyone into submission. The result is that the worst most incompetent lawyers, doctors and corporate executives never have to worry about being held accountable for their misdeeds, smiling in the courtroom to show they can get away with anything. This website is a great place where the small and powerless can make the corrupt rich and powerful answerable for their wrongdoing. Mr. Podesta should know that we the people are watching. You and other blue blood attroneys that protect the vicious and callous elite will have to answer one day for your misdeeds! Eugene, please feel free and respond to this and tell us what justifies your "legal" practice and practices. Tell everyone why you have made a career of defending the reprobate against the lowly poor and injured...... we are waiting.

Oh boy. Don’t get me started on Baker Donelson.

The law firm of Baker Donelson is the WORST! I guess if you’re a large rapacious corporation, it makes sense you would want to hire a predacious extortionist for a law firm.

FYI to the world, unscrupulous people make for unscrupulous dirty-dealing lawyers.


I know Eugene Podesta. If the court room was a classroom, Eugene Podesta would be known as the classroom cheater.

If the court room were a playground, we’d dub Podesta as the class bully. Podesta intentionally violates written and unwritten rules of the litigation process to improperly influence parties, witnesses, and especially judges.

I had a case where my client sued Podesta’s client for legal malpractice. At one point in the process, Gene was required by the court to inform me of previous proceedings (where Gene Podesta apparently spoke at length to the judge ex parte).

Eugene Podesta failed to inform me of the details of the “meeting” as required by the judge.

Eugene Podesta then manipulated the court into ruling on his summary judgment motion without any hearing through unprofessional and unethical behavior. Gene Podesta told me he would withdraw the motion and a proposed order he had filed when I filed an affidavit (which was the basis for his Summary Judgment Motion). Once filed, Podesta again untruthfully represented that he would withdraw the motion and order. You guessed it, Gene did not withdraw the motion or order which was essentially signed by the judge as being unopposed.

We were astonished when we learned months later that the judge had signed the order dismissing the case.

Gene said it was a case of “miscommunication,” which was absolute BS. Eugene Podesta cheats! He violates rules of civil procedure, local rules, and professional ethics. Podesta is the bully in the playground.

After intentionally tripping you he tells the teacher (judge) it was just an accident to avoid punishment.
