Lawyer Resume Fraud

The Legal Profession Blog had an interesting Jan. 2, 2009 posting about resume fraud by attorneys. It reports on a California and D.C. case where attorneys were sanctioned for misrepresentations on their resumes. Frankly, I am not sure that this should rise to the level of professional misconduct. I understand that it might be employment related misconduct and believe that termination from employment should be the only sanction.

This just goes to show how very important it is for people to look into the credentials of their attorneys. Any really good attorney shouldn't have to fib on his or her resume.
