Latest Recession Victims: Laid-Off Lawyers

The Washington Times reports, “The number of unemployed lawyers surged from a nationwide average of 20,000 last year to 31,000 in the first quarter, the highest in at least 15 years, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics” and “three thousand lawyers lost their jobs in the first three months of the year.” Jackie Finn of Finn and Associates, a legal recruiting firm in McLean, said, “D.C. is holding up better than other cities, but we are part of the global legal market now.” However, “David P. Landau, of Washington-based legal recruiting firm Klein, Landau and Romm, said younger lawyers who haven’t made partner are hit hardest.”

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
