Elizabeth Warren Defrauded Asbestos Victims While Practicing Law Without a License

Elizabeth Warren Defrauded Asbestos Victims While Practicing Law Without a License
Posted by Daniel Greenfield
Sep 24th, 2012

Laws? They’re for little people. Laws don’t apply to Harvard professors. They apply to Harvard janitors.

Compassion? Liberals are great at that. Just ask Elizabeth Warren who was paid nearly a quarter of a million dollars to help Travelers Insurance deny asbestos compensation to asbestos victims… and she did it while practicing law without a license. And wearing a fake Cherokee headdress.

After this latest story, I have a feeling that Elizabeth Warren wishes she had run for the Senate in Oklahoma, instead of in Professor Jacobson’s backyard.

Warren represented not just Travelers, but numerous other companies starting in the late 1990s working out of and using her Harvard Law School office in Cambridge, which she listed as her office of record on briefs filed with various courts. Warren, however, never has been licensed to practice law in Massachusetts.

Maybe this will finally cook Elizabeth Warren’s goose. It’ll take more than smoke singals and a rain dance for her to overcome this revelation.

Sounds like just the sort of idiot the Massachusetts voters love to vote for.

Oh, for the good old days, when they used to vote for the Irish Mafia. Compared to their current rulers, the Irish Mafia were straightforwardly corrupt, ran a tight ship, and didn’t pretend to be anything they weren’t.

Exactly. This doesn’t even come close to dead girl or live boy, and Ted Kennedy and Barney Frank passed those posts. Clinton cinched it with rapist-in-chief. The only thing a ‘rat can do to bring censure upon his head is to be “politically incorrect” That’s the only sin in the liberal world, and even that depends on who does it to whom.

He hit her with so much (legitimate) stuff during the first debate that she looked punch drunk by the time it ended. I would be very surprised if he didn't bring this up during the next one.

Anybody have a contact with her campaign because this is gold and a legitimate story that I think could sink her. There’s lot of dirt thrown around in election, but practicing law without a license is something you can’t debate. It’s despicable and shocking.

“Warren, however, never has been licensed to practice law in Massachusetts.”

Do we know for sure that this is true? My wife is an attorney and she says that every brief or legal document filed has to have your bar license number on it and if these didn't appear the other side would balk.

The only way she could practice law without a license in her state would be if she was associated with another attorney with the proper license.

I trust Front Page Mag, but just wondering if we have other sources to confirm this. It is totally outrageous if true.

The laws may be written by lawyers to protect lawyers, but I'd think it would also be written to protect their legal monopoly. A question for the Freeper legal eagles: if you lose a lawsuit and the winning side's 'lawyer wasn't licensed as one do you have grounds to overturn the verdict? Or is there any way to sue that fake lawyer,' (and perhaps their 'client' too if you can show they knew she was fake or should have known so) for damages? I very much doubt the 'official' enforcement agencies in deep blue Massachusetts will act against Warren. But if there are $ available there's bound to be a licensed shyster somewhere who could find a greedy plaintiff and take on a civil case even Orly Taitz could win. Even if the courts lied together to protect Warren the news of such a suit would kill her candidacy. Now Jacobsen admits he still has a questions to resolve regarding possible licensure in other states, but those should be resolved in a few days leaving plenty of time for filing civil suits if suitable legal grounds are present.

All Brown has to do is ask the “professor” if she has ever had a law license in MA.

Yes or no ??

If she dodges the question or is evaisive in any way she is probably toast.

Brown can point out that since she refuses to answer the question, voters must assume the worst and she broke the law. Use the analogy of a surgeon working with out medical license.

Chances are she'll dodge it. He directly raised a number of points (she'd vote with Harry Reid 100% of the time, she never checked the box to pay the optional higher income tax rate, she gets a 0% loan from Harvard) and she ignored them and went off on some tangent each time. He should also try to work in the fact that she and her brother were flipping foreclosed homes back in her home state of Oklahoma.

Let her dodge them and show everyone with a brain that she's a hypocritical, greedy liar. And a liberal. But I repeat myself.

That is the best analogy I have seen to date on why Obama should not have four more years.

Credit counseling cuts criticized
Boston Herald - Monday, August 9, 1999
Author: JOE BARTOLOTTA

(EXCERPT)

Three years ago, Rosemary DePont was newly divorced and flirting with bankruptcy.

The Taunton mother of three used credit cards for food and clothing, and her debt soon hit $20,000. Today, DePont, 36, is paying her bills, thanks to a credit counseling agency that helped her climb back from the brink of bankruptcy.

And now, consumer advocates say, credit card issuers have caught agencies like the one that helped DuPont in a financial vise.

Fleet Financial Group Inc. and other major credit card issuers are cutting funds to those agencies, saying the organizations could stand a little belt tightening and save money by becoming more automated.

Consumer advocates complain banks are extending credit to more people than ever before, while shortchanging counseling agencies that can educate card users and set up payment plans that prevent bankruptcies.

Critics say the cuts mean people will be turned away and driven into bankruptcy - at a time when banks are pushing Congress to make it harder for people to shed credit card debt.

Some bankers say the agencies have brought the cuts on themselves, by stepping up advertising that’s attracting record numbers to interest-free repayment plans.

Elizabeth Warren , a Harvard University Law School professor who specializes in bankruptcy and consumer law, doesn’t buy that explanation. She says banks are just being greedy.

“The message is, take our cards and spend, spend, spend, and when you get into trouble, we will squeeze, squeeze, squeeze,” Warren says.

“The growth imperative in the credit card industry means that banks have pushed more and more credit into the hands of less and less credit-worthy people,” Warren says.

My wife is an attorney and she says that every brief or legal document filed has to have your bar license number on it and if these didn't appear the other side would balk.

I was a paralegal before I retired and MA courts do require the BBO (Board of Bar Overseers) number on filings; I don't think other states do, at least not all other states. Anyone know in which state the relevant suits were filed? Though one of the radio talk shows in Boston called the BBO and were told that since Warren is a law professor and was only doing it part-time, it was all A-OK, though the law as written makes no such exceptions. Of course, they may have gotten this answer from the receptionist for all I know! ;-)

The only way she could practice law without a license in her state would be if she was associated with another attorney with the proper license.

If her license in NJ (or Texas?) were current, maybe the "legitimate" lead attorney could file a Motion Pro Hac Vice" to admit her for a particular case, though I never heard of this with the subject attorney not residing or practicing in the state where he or she was licensed. I don't even know if it's possible. (I've only heard of this where a longstanding client of an attorney in one state gets involved in an action in another state and wants his "own" lawyer). You'd think if it were that simple though, she'd have said something.
