As If California Didn't Have Enough Problems.....



Now this. I just received an obnoxious email from Lex-Pollution announcing that "Lexolution Co-Founder Nora Plesent is Now the Managing Partner of Lexolution's Los Angeles Office"

It says: "Lexolution is thrilled to announce that Nora Plesent, a leader in the temporary legal staffing industry for more than a decade, has permanently taken up residence in Lexolution's Los Angeles office. Nora helped found Lexolution in 2001 and has been an instrumental force in Lexolution's rise as a leading provider of temporary attorneys and paralegals in the New York, Washington, DC, Los Angeles and San Francisco Bay Area metropolitan regions. Lexolution has extensive experience staffing experienced attorneys in virtually every area of legal practice and managing large electronic discovery projects."

But then the key words come in: "We strategize with law firms and corporations about ways to significantly reduce costs through the use of our temporary attorneys."

Now, note this does not say that Lexolution does anything to present more qualified people, or that it is doing anything in the interests of its temps. No, it says that they "strategize" with the enemy, the law firms and corporations, to squeeze all the juice out of the lemons (lemmings) (both in terms of taking their best years and paying them nothing for their time).

Thanks Lexolution, for bringing your wrecking ball to the Los Angeles legal market after helping to screw up New York.

I am updating my resume and need to put a temp gig on there - do I list the agency that placed me? Thanks for your advice.

Great. Taxes are going to go up, services are going to be cut, and now wages are going to go down.

Well, they have been there for several years. This move would indicate that all is not well in LA if one of the principals is leaving nyc for la.
My guess is that they are in deep trouble and she is shuffling out there to try and save the failing branch office.

Either way the plague of locusts is descending upon LA. I hope that Lex puts that bitch Amy Kossoris out business.

No, you include the name of the firm. However, if you are submitting for a permanent position, I would recommend not including document reviews because of the stigma. There is nothing that requires that you include all experience that you have ever had on your resume. Only include document reviews for document review projects. No one else will consider this useful experience. If you do not have any other substantive work, you should volunteer on the side to prevent long unexplainable gaps.

You could have also been working in private practice or engaged in some type of buisness venture. This may have been what you were doing in the gap period on your resume. Nothing wrong with that.

whites need to help each other like the Jews do instead of being pitted against each other by Jew corporate owners.

Enough with the foreigners taking our jobs as well. Can't catch a break between the Africans, Asians, and all the other 'ians.

Enough is enough. Need to take back some small businesses and stop letting foreigners have our jobs.

But they just said "experienced." Ask not what your temp agency can do for you, ask what you can do for your temp agency.

Better Coder is a Metrosexual. Whether or not he is gay is another question. (N.B., he talks a lot about buying clothes, but never talks about dating girls.)

It had occurred to me that he is gay. But, as a straight white liberal male, I am pro gay rights, so I have no problem with his gayness (if he has any gayness).

Lets get back on topic here folks.

And the topic at hand is California.

Did you know that Alex Gaylard is from California? Here's the story - apparently he went to some TTT there, and after graduation he rather smartly realized the pedigree of his dogshit law degree, and decided that it would be most advantageous for him to pursue a full time career in ass-kissing and womanizing.

And not wanting to kiss the asses of some laid back CA people, he moved to the right coast - NYC - where the real brown nose lips-to-hairy-asscrack ass kissing goes on.

And thus he started his "career"
He was only kissing ass at Sullivan for about 6 months before he was hired full time for the great case known as Barclays, where he honed his skill day and night, womanizing, kissing hairy ass, and allowing himself to be metaphorically and professionally teabagged on repeated occasions.
After all, if you are going to be a professional ass-kisser, you might as well let them sit on your face as you do it! The rest is hostory.

Where art thou, Alex Gaylard? We have not seen you in the basement. Did you go back to California (for good??) We dont miss you.

Is the wicked witch with the face that looks like it was hit by a level 9 California earthquake still in the S&C dungeon?

Oh that's right, she's the token women minority, so they can't fire her.

Anonymous said...

7:12 That is an hysterical biography of Alex Gayllard. I hope that bag of shit has gone back to CA. I won't miss him at S&C either.

Isn't Nora UnPleasant the one whose daddy was some big partner at a 2nd rate law firm in midtown which gave LexPollution a shitload of work back in the day?

Anonymous said...

Yes, that is how she got started. She took advantage of 9/11 and the recession that followed by offering law firms bottom rate labor.

Like a plague of locusts the temp agency recruiters spread: New York, DC, Philly, Huston, San Francisco, and now LA. They devourer all in their path.

When they have eaten up all the good jobs or shipped them overseas they will pick a new industry to plunder. Plot their path of devastation: Office Clerical -> Administration -> IT -> Accounting -> Legal -> Medical?

Stan Plesent, who was very unpleasant, was a partner in Squadron Ellenoff, a has-been New York firm. Like most midtown firms it went down the tubes due to high costs and not being able to compete with the BigLaw. Now, she is collaborating with big law.

I hate to spoil the fun of all the morons who dominate this board lately, but there was a serious question earlier about putting temp work on a resume and I think it was mishandled: as far as I know, you cannot just put the name of a firm without the name of the agency that placed you - you must put both - you cannot make it appear that you were employed by "Sullivan & Cromwell" - (that would make for a riotously funny reference check phone call)

you can say that you were placed there by ABC Recruiters. check with your agency, most of them have specific guidelines on handling this

Lexolution has a project downtown where the attorneys are earning $28/hour plus paying for parking. This is unlivable and clearly indicative of Lex's "strategizing."
