She says she's a lawyer, she looks like a lawyer
yet somehow she hasn’t quite made her case.
Is it you or could you be on to something?
Every lawyer needs to pass a state bar exam that
determines whether a candidate is qualified to
practice law, so there’s a record somewhere.
It’s common for full-fledged lawyers who’ve passed
this grueling exam to submit their info to the
mother of all law sites, Martindale.com.
Also, specific to New York is the
New York State Unified Court System - everyone who
is currently registered to practice law in the state
should be in this database (to find it do a google
search with "New York State Unified Court System" in quotations;
linking there seems a bit complex).
Just enter the poor vixen’s name and you’ll get the
full 411… including where she went to school, what
year she graduated (a great way to guess her age) and
her job title. Click the link to the company website
and you’re likely to find a bio too—presuming she
truly was a lawyer in the first place.
If you’re still unsure check with the lawyer disciplinary agency
to make sure she’s been a good girl.
Remember, lawyers can be excellent negotiators and tend
to ask leading questions. If she's just not the right
branch for you, hit a local courthouse bar – they’re
crawling with prosecutors, defense attorneys and
sometimes even a judge (Judy) or two.
Hey... it's a free country and all lawyers know,
ya win some, ya lose some.
