Dear Tomthetemp,
I think your article on David Gelfand is disgusting. Mr. Gelfand is a respectable lawyer in New York, and most likely one of the highest ranked lawyers in New York as well. You have no idea what this man is like, and your sitting on your computer coming up with these nasty, untruthful accusations and putting them up on the internet. Mr. Gelfand is a very kind, intelligent, funny man, who cares about his partners and fellow employees at Milbank. Get your facts strait before you write another FALSE story.
Yours Truly,
Diane"



Dear Diane,
I apologize if you were offended by last year's David Gelfand posting. Your right, I have no idea what this man is like. While I agree with you that what was written was certainly nasty, I disagree with your assertion that it was in anyway untruthful. The posting merely repeated reporting conducted by Above the Law claiming that Milbank and Mr. Gelfand were less than forthcoming in their disbandment of their staff attorney program. While all this was going down, I merely commented on the fact that I found it curious that Milbank was contemporaneously attending conferences and instructing other organizations on how to best outsource legal services to low-cost, foreign labor centers. Certainly, it can't come as a great surprise that such a story would generate a firestorm of nasty comments on a blog populated by former, laid off staff and contract attorneys. Again, I apologize if any of my readers offended your sensibilities.

I worked at Milbank and they treated the staff attorneys like graduates of worthless law schools but made us do the grunt work. Now during hard times David G. gives us the shove off.

On the one occasion long ago when I worked with David Gelfand he was a collegial person and a very capable litigator.

Of all the people on this blog I feel sorriest for recruiter. She is also BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOORING, and very LAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAME. At least most of us admit we are here b/c we are in dire straits. But for a "successful" person to be here and spend so much time trying SO hard to come up with "WITTY" comments to put down others must mean that she is really one nasty lonely unshaggable cunt.

I feel sorry for you, whoever you are man, woman, beast, or enuch. Your shit became lame a long time ago.

My friend was unfortunate enough to work for Valvina Scissorhands [she has that moniker for cutting up co-worker boyfriend's clothes b/c he was shagging her friend at S&C] and she told my friend that if she ever caught her talking to her paralegal "boyfriend" she would have her fired. First, that girl was a classy lawyer and would NEVER even think about dating a ghetto para, second she was talking to him about work. I just don't understand how S&C can hire such people while really nice temporary lawyers are totally abused. No wonder this site has so many people bitching. Ghetto people are totally lording it over nice educated people. My friend was the sweetest person you could have known. But she got so afraid she left.

Don't fall for this work for free scam. Back in the day, our school told us to go work for the city for free for the so called experience. After an extensive application process and after having us do the grunt work for months on end without pay, nobody got hired. Someone eventually got hired by a shitlaw firm, but had to quit after she couldn't pay her credit card bill after months of working for free. Don't allow the state to work you for free like an unpaid slave, while public municipal workers are retiring at 45 with fully paid pensions.

Gelfand is merely participating in the free market. Let's face it, the legal industry is all for outsourcing and doc reviewers aka "the chimps" are disposable. No organization is there to protect us, yet we're expected to pay $350 every 2 years to be crapped on.

For all of you doc reviewers out there, if you have been put off hanging your own shingle and practicing substantive law... well... I'm afraid the market is going to force you to do it.

WARNING!!

Time to get out of Doc Review for Good -- NOW!!!

EXHIBIT #1:

This ad seen on DC Craigslist -- today:

A corporation in the DC metro area seeks unlicensed attorneys (unlicensed JDs) for a document review project. Project hours and project duration are not yet known. Compensation will be between $15 and $18 per hour. Overtime hours may be available. The project may start as soon as next week.

Please email your resume as soon as possible for immediate consideration.

EXHIBIT #2:

This ad received through Posse List -- today:

We may have a Virtual/Remote document review project coming up that will require Spanish fluent licensed contract attorneys. The project is indefinite for several reasons; we will not know for certain if the project is going forward for another few weeks.



In the meantime, we are accepting licensed attorney applicants who are fluent in Spanish (must be able to read, write, and speak Spanish fluently).



You must be willing to work at least 50-60 hours per week and be able to commit to the term of the project. Candidates must be licensed in any state in the US and must have a minimum of 1 year of electronic document review experience. You must have high-speed internet access.



Your status/pay: $28.00/hour; you will be a 1099 Independent Contractor; you must be available to work at least 50 hours per week and more as the project requires; the standard hourly pay of $28.00/hour will apply to any time over 40 hours per week, not at time-and-a-half rates.



To apply and to be considered as a candidate, please go to www.jurisclerks.com and fill-out the online application (required).



Minimum Requirements:



Please apply only if you are:


1) A licensed Attorney;
2) Have more than 1 year of electronic document review experience;
3) have high-speed internet access; and be
4) Fluent in reading, writing, and speaking Spanish.



AFTER COMPLETING THE ONLINE APPLICATION, you may also email your resume to jimtarantino@jurisclerks.com. Please put "YOUR NAME and SPANISH Doc Review Project $28.00/hour" in the Subject Line.



In your cover email please answer:



1. What SPANISH Electronic Document Review Experience do you have ? specify length of projects, type, etc?
2. What types of litigation have you worked on?
3. Are you a licensed attorney ? What state?
4. Where are you currently located?
5. What are you doing now?
6. When are you available for projects?
7. Are you able to work a minimum of 50 hours/week?
8. What is the maximum number of hours/week you are willing to work?
9. Any experience using Catalyst? If so, explain.

---

Don't know if these ads are real or fake.

If they are real, then they suggest that the BOTTOM HAS FALLEN OUT OF DOC REVIEW as a source of income.

Luckily, I'm already out of DR, but if these ads are real, and they are paying $15-18/hour for JDs (when it used to be $30, or $28 at the least), and only $28/hour (with OT but no OT pay) for Spanish fluent attorneys.... then this is the END OF DOC REVIEW as a viable way to make a living.

Temp work is always hit harder in a recession and recovers faster when the recession ends. As soon as the unemployment rate turns around you'll see a bunch of projects. I'm guessing 3rd or 4th quarter.

Or when the economy turns around, you could find yourself, ummm, like a real job, and have a career.

I scrounge around for demoralyzing scraps of work wherever I can find it, I am uninsured, and due to the economy I haven't been able to save for retirement or pay my student loans in the last two years. I doubt however that I will ever make it to Lifer's age as I am constantly stressed, depressed, and fatigued.
