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.
