Your credentials are very impressive

Title of Article: "Know What Your Lawyers Are Doing"
Author: David D. Johnson

I try to keep up with legal thoughts and cases that may affect my friends and legal actions they may have commenced relating to a horse-related issue; (Remember, I am NOT an attorney...talk to your own lawyer).

The District of Columbia Court of Appeals recently held that a partner was in violation of the Washington, DC, Rules of Professional Conduct. The problem came from his lack of supervision of an associate, also an attorney.

The case's issues are unimportant. Suffice to say that the partner was not fully aware of what the young and inexperienced associate was doing or not doing, which was required by the Washington, DC Rules of Professional Conduct. (The case is In re Cohen, 847 A.2nd 1162 (D.C. 2004)

It's important to keep aware of who at the law firm you engage is actually keeping up with your case. This does not mean that you are to "second guess" your legal help. So rather than simply turning your case over to the law firm, "en masse," you need to be helpful in perfecting your case, legal issues and keeping an "eye on the store" as well.
