How Lawyers Can Be Desperate AND Stupid In This Economy

Former NACDL President Larry Pozner wrote in his farewell column that the worst decisions lawyers will make is when things are slow.

For many in our profession now, things are slow.

No reason to be stupid.

I'm hearing about lawyers connecting with "brokers" for lawyers who perform "loan modification services." The broker "sells" the client to the lawyer and then charges the client a fee for finding the lawyer.

Not a good idea, for so many reasons.

Be careful out there.
