Wall of Shame: Lawyers Behaving Badly

Hey all!  I'm back from vacation. I had a blast. I am not going to go into details, but the country I went to was a model of socialism that I wish we would imitate here.  Everyone appeared to be upper middle class--although they complain that unemployment is high at 6%.  They have no idea.

So, I'm going to ease back into blogging.  I found these several stories and I thought I would share:

  • A lawyer stole $2.2 million of his clients' money to pay off a blackmailer.  What was she blackmailing him for?  Oh... she accused him of lying and threatened to have him disbarred.    Yah, you heard right.  He stole money so that he could prevent losing his law license.   I wonder what his score was on the MPRE.  What a dope!
  • Three lawyers are among ten that allegedly defrauded banks of $10 million by creating dummy buyers and false appraisals, thereby causing banks to give out mortgages they wouldn't normally have given.  Yah, these three guys are scum--allegedly.  But I'm in no mood to think of a bank as a victim.  
  • Susan Bysiewicz is up for Attorney General of Connecticut.  There's just one problem, she has never had a trial--or even a deposition--in her 24 years of practice.  I'm wondering who she slept with to be considered for this position.  I'll move to Connecticut.  Maybe they would consider me. I have TONS more experience than her.


  1. I could see not having a jury trial (Biglaw never goes to trial unless your firm is Quinn Emanuel -- there was a litigation partner at my first law firm who was in his mid 50s and had never been to trial), but not even a deposition? Good Lord.

  2. You went to Canada.
