When I first saw this I was not sure I wanted to post it. Did not want anyone to think that we were promoting a “love it or leave the profession” point of view but after more thought I realized that this list of skills could also serve as a reminder of what you need to highlight in your resume!!! and maybe how your pro bono activities could help fill these gaps! So here goes..Legal Skills You Can Use in Any Job
The New Jersey Supreme Court has disbarred an attorney convicted of conspiracy to commit immigration fraud.
From the recommendation of the Disciplinary Review Board
During his allocution, respondent admitted that, while working on asylum applications in Manhattan, New York, from 2008 through December 2012, he came to believe with a “high probability” that the applications were “false.” Despite that belief, respondent did not investigate the truth or falsity of the applications, and continued to work on them. He admitted that he worked in concert with others at his law firm and that some of the “false” applications were submitted to the immigration court.
He was sentenced to a 24-month prison term.
In the disciplinary case, he placed the blame on his being manipulated by his “young, attractive office staff.”
The breadth and depth of the fraud that respondent perpetrated against the United States government, along with his refusal to take responsibility therefor, beyond entering a guilty plea to the crime, lead us to only one conclusion: respondent should be disbarred.
He also has been disbarred in New York.
You can’t help yourself, your fingers itch to send a text! Might want to review some text etiquette from an expert. Check out this blog post: http://www.businesswritingblog.com
I am especially annoyed by the text telling me you have arrived at the restaurant and I am in my car on the way! If I could safely respond it would be ” duh” or ” I would hope so”
Think before you text and once you are a lawyer, think twice
