Correct me if I'm wrong though, each and every lawyer on the list of lawyers above who have been suspended, with the possible exception of Koziol, was born with a sterling silver spoon in their mouth.
Bob Calli, Joey Hobika, the Petrone brother and sister never had a dime in debt for law school or anything else for that matter. They were well taken care of by their dads who put in the work!
The 50 somethings listed sure have debt now though don't they? Why? well, for starters none of them are very bright outside the paths that were paved for them by their hard working Fathers.
It's the way of the people on the list above. Spend WAY more than you earn or are even capable of earning, play big shot on a daily basis to keep up your phony appearance and worry about the consequences when and if they come.
You reap what you sew. These people reap only what they owe!

Most lawyers here struggle. They have student loans, kids, club memberships etc. it's not a sure thing anymore. Even the more well known practices in the city are all feeling it. When people can't afford to buy houses, there are no closings.

Business law is non existent in the city. So attorneys are eking by doing estate work. Sheltering assets in case dad has to go in the nursing home.

Go to traffic court. All the lawyers are there. They're also looking for assigned counsel work which doesn't pay very well. Done are doing debt collection .

Matrimonials are losers. No one is ever satisfied.

The big firms are all downsizing. Read Barron's or the WSJ. White shoe firms have cut their staffs to nothing.

In Utica the well known firms have all taken their practices for granted. I don't think it's so much bad lawyers but bad times. They're not good business people.

This is a tough area for anyone who isn't part of a family firm. it will be interesting to see what happens when the older generation dies off and the younger ones have to make an actual living. Some of the 'youngsters' will do well - Richard Cohen as an example.I guess you could make a living in Utica doing criminal court assignments if you wwere a hustler.

Couldn't you have fired his old ass and gotten a lawyer that would work with you? I don't really know this works, was it a criminal case? Civil suit? Comp? Can you fire your attorney at any time or does it have to be within a certain timeframe and if you pass that you are stuck with whoever you started with? Sorry, not trying to sound ignorant on this matter, just haven't ever had the need for legal representation and am curious now.
You can fire your attorney at any time you want. Only down side is that you need to pay our outstanding bill with them.

It's amazing how powerless you people seem. Sitting in your bathrooms complaining about others. Maybe your case sucked maybe you lied too much maybe you just need to blame someone else for your problems. Seek some help but I bet that if you do there'll be a whole thing on here about how your counselor sucks and couldn't cure your problems. Get a grip faggots.

Or maybe it was poor representation,maybe it was unfair treatment. Not all lawyers do their job the way they should. There are some that are only in it for the money. There are some that are in their little clicks.
Perhaps it is you spending too much time in the bathroom if you think these things don't happen in court.

Sounds to me like your case sucked and Johnny Cochrane couldn't have won it. You can blame everyone and everything but its history now and you need to deal with today and that ache in your gut will go away and you'll feel better about yourself.

As usual, Mr. Mentally disabled, you are 100% wrong. I have no need for a lawyer myself. I know a lot of people that are misrepresentated. If you believe there is no such thing as a bad lawyer, you are seriously misguided.
Sounds to me like you are a very naive,bitter, frustrated person.
Get out in the world, you may find out that not everything is the way you think it to be.
