I get a pamphlet mailed to me that says I can be a Founding Member of this organization if I send in a check or give them a crfedit card number. They explain all their resources that I already have, and which all attorneys should have already. I look on-line to see who the memebers are and I had to laugh. I see someone that I have never seen do a DUI. In fact when he came into court last week on a non-DUI, he walked up to me and another attorney and asked us if we knew what the penalty was for his client’s alleged crime. I asked him if maybe he should have known that before he came to court, and he got flustered and asked angrily asked if I could say it any louder so that his client could hear that his lawyer had no clue about the case. He is a Founding Member, so it is about sending in the $$$, not competence. The outside of the brochure claims you’ll get the training and expertise to “Command and Get Higher Fees.” First, you should really have to become a “real lawyer” and at least know how long your client can go to jail after you screw up the case before you get a title. Don’t hire anyone just because they are a member of some “club,” that only requires a check or credit card to join. I am doing my part in their endeavour by putting the brochure out for recycle.
