Robot Robot & Hwang -- Lindsay Lohan's Next Law Firm?

My predecessor Bob Ambrogi wrote on LawSites yesterday about a faux law firm website that made me smile. Robot Robot & Hwang is apparently the brainchild of Tim Hwang, who, though not actually a lawyer, purports to be the one human partner in the three-attorney firm.

Robot The other two partners are Apollo Cluster (pictured) and "Daria" XR-1029. Cluster has an impressive resume, having clerked for Judge Richard Posner on the 7th Circuit, and having lectured at Stanford on "the obsolescence of humans in legal practice and mankind generally." XR-1029's pedigree is not too shabby either, with an LLM on top of her Boalt JD, and having been named a "Super Lawyer" in 2008.

I, like Bob, can't exactly figure out what the purpose behind the site is, but I will say it's entertaining, and as there's no office address listed for the firm, I'm not sure where, if in any jurisdiction, anyone can go after Hwang for impersonating an attorney.

I suggest that Lindsay Lohan consider retaining the firm, as she seems to be having a bit of trouble holding onto a lawyer, and I imagine a machine stands a much better chance of being able to spend 10 minutes in a room (or a cell) with Lohan without contemplating an act of violence.
