Yesterday I presented him for swearing in to the California Bar yesterday, some 17 years after he took the New York Bar.
Personally, I’m not sure I could muster the energy and the focus to sit for the bar again. It had to be tough when all his friends and fellow lawyers watched his effort.
I got a chuckle when, after he passed, it took the California Bar six months to find him of good character, suitable to be a California bankruptcy lawyer.
Must ask Jay what pictures the examiners could have gotten hold of to cause the delay<g>.
Now that he’s sworn in, I’m afraid I’ll have to share his time and attention with building a new practice in South Pasadena, 3000 miles away from the old one. We had a quiz on California exemptions and community property as he drove me to the airport to come home last night.
The good news is that the issues of marketing a bankruptcy practice will be fresh and painfully relevant when we meet in Dallas for our two day workshop on marketing, technology and practice management.
Things have changed in the legal and internet world since I first started Bankruptcy in Brief in 1998, and even changed since 2005. We’ll have lots to talk about at the workshop.
