"For Some Firms, Law Is All in the Family"
"Manager Minute": How to Manage a Law Firm

Remember that paralegal who impersonated a lawyer?

...well, he was arrested & charged with unauthorized practice of law:

"A man who prosecutors said had been representing clients of a prominent New York law firm for two years was arrested here on Wednesday and charged with impersonating a lawyer, state prosecutors said.

"The man, Brian T. Valery, 32, of Massapequa Park, N.Y., surrendered to the authorities and was charged with perjury, which carries a maximum penalty of five years in prison, and practicing law without being a lawyer, a misdemeanor with a maximum penalty of two months, according to David I. Cohen, the state’s attorney for the judicial district. Mr. Valery was released and must appear in State Superior Court on Jan. 24.

"The arrest came as a blow to Mr. Valery’s former employer, the New York firm of Anderson Kill & Olick, which said it had been scouring its records for several weeks so it could notify clients who might be due refunds as a result of being billed for Mr. Valery’s work."
