Profiles in Wicked Deceit: Jack Marshall of Ethics Alarms
The Liar Blames the Job Market on Recent “Lazy” Grads:
Back on October 26, 2011, some turd calling itself Jack Marshall posted an entry on its blog, under the label “Young, Gullible, Lazy, Unimaginative and Unbelievable: I Wonder Why This Lawyer Has Trouble Finding A Job?” Here are some excerpts from this trash:
“Do you know what the unemployment rate was for lawyers in 2010, according to the U.S. Department of Labor?
1.5%, and that’s a big increase from 2007, when it was under 1%. What law school is this where 30% or more of the graduates are unemployed? If true, it has to be one spectacularly crummy institution. Again, I am dubious.
But I am especially dubious about anyone with a law degree who isn’t a drooling idiot and yet says he has “no job prospects.” Impossible. A law degree is the most versatile and useful degree there is. It is just as useful for getting management jobs in business and politics as it is in law. It is considered a credential for consulting, negotiation, public speaking, and lobbying. I once was hired to run a health care organization that required a medical degree: they couldn’t find a doctor they liked, so the Chairman of the Board said, “Eh, a law degree’s just as good,” and hired me. No prospects? None? What’s wrong with this guy?” [Emphasis mine]
The cockroach concluded his moronic article with these words:
“And there is one more thing to consider. Nothing, presumably, is stopping a healthy young man who actually learned anything at law school from doing what young lawyers from Abraham Lincoln to Clarence Darrow to my father did and still do: hang out a shingle and start a solo practice, at least until another job materializes. There are indigent defendants that need representation; there are non-profits that need affordable legal work. He could be doing some good for the other “99%,’ and starting to pay of that loan in the process.
“No job prospects”?
Baloney.” [Emphasis mine]
The human waste product known as Jack Marshall fails to recognize that law students today typically incur an additional $80K-$150K in NON-DISCHARGEABLE student debt. That might preclude someone from hanging out their own shingle. Hell, how many banks will even offer a small business loan to such an applicant?!?!
The Pig’s Background:
“ProEthics, Ltd., is a national professional ethics training and consulting firm based in Alexandria, Virginia, just outside Washington D.C. It is led by Jack Marshall, who has diverse training and experience as an ethicist, teacher, professional speaker, lawyer, performer and stage director.
Founded in 1994, ProEthics has gained a national reputation for creating and delivering professional ethics training sessions, seminars, retreats and presentations that lead the field in their creativity, timeliness, energy and effectiveness.”
“A graduate of Harvard College, where he specialized in American Government and leadership, and Georgetown University Law Center, he practiced criminal law in Massachusetts and organization law in the District of Columbia, and led non-profit organizations devoted to education, public policy research, and health. He is a member of the Massachusetts bar and the District of Columbia bar.
He served on the adjunct faculty of the Washington College of Law at American University in Washington, D.C., teaching legal ethics from 2006-2008.”
Yes, this piece of garbage is neutral on the subject, correct?!
Prior Published Idiocy from Pig Marshall:
“Legal ethics are law. One doesn't lose her law license for merely not following guidelines. Anyone who doesn't understand that legal ethics are law can read some judicial opinions. The Rules of Professional Conduct are as much of a part of law as the Rules of the Road: Violate traffic laws, and you'll lose your privilege to drive a car. Violate the Rules of Professional Conduct, and you'll lose your livelihood.
It's obvious, then, that Jack Marshall lacks any understanding of ethics and legal ethics. He cannot comprehend that his opinions on how humans should behave is not the totality of the subject. He does not understand that one's duties as a lawyer are subject to enforceable rules - laws, in every sense of the word.
Anyone who charges people to attend his lectures on ethics after Marshall's display of ignorance, is unethical. After all, Continuing Legal Education must involve education. Jack Marshall is a de-educator.” [Emphasis mine]
Apparently, Goofy Bald-Headed Ass-Wipe Jack Marshall feels that a lawyer who play an April Fools Day joke is unethical. What a beacon of ethics, huh?!
Conclusion: In the final analysis, Jack Marshall is a ball-less, spineless, brainless waste of sperm and egg. The man has no character and no integrity. He bills himself as a purported “ethics guru.” Always be leery of these types; by nature, they are mere charlatans who seek to avoid real work. However, this physically and ethically grotesque pig takes deceit and dishonesty to another level.
This pathetic moron has chosen to ignore articles critical of the law school cartel and the legal “profession” - which have appeared in the New York Times, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, Slate and other mainstream publications. A law degree is not required for the following jobs: insurance adjuster, grade school teacher, sales, customer service representative, bartender, etc. Furthermore, no one with any semblance of sanity can expect a recent lawyer with $100K+ in student debt to give away his services - or to represent indigent clients.
