Help law students create an ethical Business Image upon graduation from law school. My mission is to change the attorney brand forever, through you, our future, from Unethical to #1 in Most Ethical, Honest, and Trustworthy.
There is a movement in California and other states to allow Paraprofessionals – Legal Document Assistants and Paralegals, like me – to give legal advice and to appear in court at the table next to the litigant. This would remove from attorneys two of the most important and financially productive aspects of their services. This movement was precipitated by a lack of Honesty and Ethics, resulting in financial abuse of the client and unsustainable costs.
Where have we seen this before? Smile Direct Club and Uber. The public demanded better service and costs, and an option was created to provide to the public cost efficient pricing that was transparent. Smile Direct Club and Uber were game changers in the dental, car rental, and taxi industries. Now Law!
There is still time to save you. The brand needs to change. The business model must change. And ethics must replace financial avarice.
