Just started letting the mind wander yesterday, and realized that with fewer workers, with much less income to “…spread around…“(or as Obama considers it “wealth”), Americans have had less time and finances to incur injuries, have accidents and/or incidents at work or at play, to warrant legal counsel.
Without a solid insurance program, many are not being seen, so it is a safe bet malpractice suits are down. Also if there is no small business developments growing to medium, and then from medium to large that birth corporations, where is the need for corporate litigation? When was the last time an Immigration Attorney had solid work and a heavy caseload?
Pro Bono cases do not put food on the table or into the law firms’ coffers, though it appears that New York State’s Top Judge Permits Early Bar Exam in Exchange for Pro Bono Work, which appears to be contrary to the law… yet it is the dark days of the Obama lunacy of contradictions to rule of law.
The Raw Data table is an eye opener on the Layoff Tracker website. It details a sampling of layoffs in the legal profession and firms beginning in the fifth month of Obama’s first term. Records have not been maintained since August 2, 2012… so let me add just a few recent events here:
Current tracking of layoffs in the legal profession can be found at the Above The Law website.
Feb 1, 2014 Tenured Faculty Layoffs Coming at Albany Law School?
Jan 22, 2014 Husch Blackwell announces layoffs
Jan 17, 2014 Chief Justice Warns of Layoffs and Closures, Proposes 3-Year Plan
And the latest twist for the legal profession to potentially navigate –
Companies Must Now Swear — to the IRS — That None of Their Layoffs Are Because of Obamacare. Well this one is truly interesting because what if attorneys, who have worked or still work in an insurance firm, get laid off due ABSOLUTELY to Obamacare? hmm?
This vocation like many others… is reeling to be pulled out of the real shark infested Obamacare waters. And yes, as a matter of fact, IT IS ALL OBAMA’S FAULT!
