Dear Attorney Korman,

At this time, I am writing to inform you that I will not be accepting your offer.

After careful consideration, I have come to the conclusion that the pay you are offering would neither fulfill me nor support the lifestyle I am living in light of the work I would be doing for you. I have decided instead to work for myself, and reap 100% of the benefits that I sow.

Thank you for the interviews.

Dianna L. Abdala, Esq.

Dianna --

Given that you had two interviews, were offered and accepted the job (indeed, you had a definite start date), I am surprised that you chose an e-mail and a 9:30 PM voicemail message to convey this information to me. It smacks of immaturity and is quite unprofessional. Indeed, I did rely upon your acceptance by ordering stationary and business cards with your name, reformatting a computer and setting up both internal and external e-mails for you here at the office. While I do not quarrel with your reasoning, I am extremely disappointed in the way this played out. I sincerely wish you the best of luck in your future endeavors.

Will Korman

A real lawyer would have put the contract into writing and not exercised any such reliance until he did so.

Again, thank you.

Thank you for the refresher course on contracts. This is not a bar exam question. You need to realize that this is a very small legal community, especially the criminal defense bar. Do you really want to start pissing off more experienced lawyers at this early stage of your career?

I can't believe that is real! BLA BLA BLA! Next time someone disagrees with me here, that'll be my response.


And you don't need a written contract. The emails and voicemail imply there was a verbal contract and that is just as good.



The good news is that at least Will Korman found out she was a retard early instead of waiting for her to actually work for him :p

What I want to know is whether she gets another job after her email is published worldwide and in the Boston little Criminal Defense community.

Educated and intelligent are two different things.

But I bet she got a job somewhere. Most likely a place where being technically right is the best form of right. I mean, who cares if its wrong by all counts, except its legally fine, right?

BM, can you enforce a verbal contract?

Last semester I had a teacher that was really old, and always reminisced about the days where a handshake was as good as a contract. He would always tell stories. One story I always think about is a story about these two men who were business rivals. One of the guys had fallen ill, and was hospitalized. The rival came in, and they negotiated a deal over a certain building(or something). They agreed upon it with a hand shake, and thats all there was to the agreement. During the mans hospitalization, events occurred that made the deal he agreed upon a losing transaction. But instead of backing out, and giving his rival the big shaft, without any consequences(other than losing pride/honor/respect), he went through with the deal knowing full well he was about to lose a load of money.

The problem with burning bridges is that you, too, need to cross them.

par for the course

Since when is being an assh*le surprising for a lawyer? Where's the irony here?
