Having worked for (and started a few) small companies over the past few years, this sort of thing is quite common. Normally, you just instruct your recruiter or hr person to be professional and cool, even in the face of the sometimes personal attacks that you might receive (it happens) from a disgruntled or disappointed candidate.

What I find more amazing about this is the navel-gazing that goes on in the legal community such that literally thousands of lawyers received, read and forwarded this on over the past two days. This is hardly a very interesting example of this kind of thing, but I guess it's worthwhile for them to forward (while billing out at $350/hour) as a matter of interest to all their friends and colleages.

I wonder when they get that warning letter about business travels having their kidneys stolen, do they forward those on as well?

Even if she really has to learn how to suck dick and kiss ass , she has a valid point : why commit resources without a contract if you are going to later complain about misallocation of oh-so-prrrrecious resources ?

Yes. I thought so, plus offering her $X and then telling her later you can only pay $Y where $X > $Y is bound to piss some people off. She had every right to be a little pissed.

I think it's also interesting that she's taking state appointed cases right now, how does that work in Mass? Do regular defense lawyers have to take court appointed cases there, rather then a dedicated PD office?

I received this the other day -- and promptly forwarded it all about town.

For you non-attorneys, this seems to happen somewhat regularly in the legal community. I would bet that a good number of practicing attorneys have emails like this (and the 2000 Fenwick & West Charity Auction, the 2001 Cadwalder Summer Associate, the "burning bridges" departure email, ad infinitum) stored somewhere in their computers. I think it's a way of documenting our urban legends.

As an aside, does anyone remember the dude who sent a faux pleading to law firms as a form of job application? That's my all-time favorite.

Normally, you just instruct your recruiter or hr person to be professional and cool, even in the face of the sometimes personal attacks that you might receive (it happens) from a disgruntled or disappointed candidate.

I had a situation once, where I was set up for multiple interviews with a small company, but each time when I called to confirm before showing up, they said "oh, such-and-such is in the bahamas" or "oh, he's not here now", and could I reschedule. That should have been a red flag, nevertheless, I kept rescheduling.

Each time we spoke, there was at least ten minutes of back and forth between myself and the recruiter over the phone, where we talked about the job, my future plans, and so on. The one piece of information I had been unwilling to divest, however, was the amount of money I was asking for; I felt it best to wait until the face-to-face meeting.

During our last phone call, however, when the recruiter (for the upteenth time) asked me how much salary I was looking for, I elected to give up waiting and just name a figure. So I said: "$".

She thanked me curtly for the info, and she was polite, but it was obvious from her change in tone (not her words) that I was too expensive for them. Shortly after we got off the phone, I received a form email that thanked me for my interest in the position, but that no positions were currently available, and they would keep my resume on file.

I wrote back (as politely as I could) that I would rather they not keep my resume on file, as I was quite disappointed to have received such a sudden and impersonal rejection letter considering the amount of back-and-forth that had gone on during the previous several weeks. What went unsaid in the email was how shocked I was that she couldn't tell me "no" over the phone, but chose instead to fire off that email.

The response that came back was stunningly hostile, and was essentially one big personal attack.

I knew a few folks who worked there, and heard stories later from others who had ridiculous interviews (like a guy in his 40s with over a decade of experience being asked by the 20-something owner of the company to "write an essay describing why you want to work for me" -- the guy being interviewed got up and walked out without a word), so it turned out to be a good thing I didn't get the job.

Esp. because I landed a job elsewhere with a much more reputable company -- aka one that everyone on this board has heard of -- and a salary 15% higher than "$", but that's just me being snarky now.

According to the Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly article, he decided to hire two lawyers instead of one and reduced the amount of salary that they'd originally discussed. She still looks bad, but that makes her initial response a little less out of the blue.

I'd be tempted to get snippy in that situation, too, but I hope I'd find a more graceful way to decline the job because the money wasn't good enough.
posted by kirkaracha at 2:52 PM on February 16, 2006


Cut this woman some slack. The job was at a pay rate calculated when he was only considering one lawyer. He decided to hire two, and told her that the rate would be less than they had agreed to. It seems to me that HE broke the agreement that they had made, and I can see how that would piss her off. Is what she did smart? Obviously not. But she's 24. Everyone does something they regret at the age of twenty four.

Yep. I edited out the 50 or so headers--of people saying "I have to forward this to you. Start from the bottom" or "Sew! Ha!"--which show how it snakes through the community. I also edited out the footers which include different variations of the "This Email and any files transmitted with it are confidential and are intended solely for the use of the individual or entity to whom they are addressed. This communication may contain material protected by the attorney-client privilege.... yada, yada."

What I quoted was the entirety of the exchange. Which is why I can't believe it made into the Boston Globe.

It's one thing to be irritated. However, most experienced lawyers I have seen have a great sense of eloquence, something this woman does not. In fact, I can go so far as to say even considering "bla bla bla" as a retort to a fellow professional is at very best, a sign of immaturity and unreliability.

Yes, Mr. Korman jumped the gun. However, his irritation was simply that, until Ms. Abdala's first reply. Playing high school social games in the real world doesn't go over well.

2) Thousands of lawyers all across the country are, at this very moment, just loving the feelings of superiority and schadenfreude that they're getting from gloating over this girl

Lawyers almost never have employment contracts. Neither do most non-unionized employees, even though many think they do. It's employment at will, like most jobs. Further evidence that this person is not the sharpest tool in the shed.

Is this earth shattering? I don't know. I do know that cautionary tale emails (and voicemails) are especially popular in the sit-in-front-of-a-computer-all-day legal community and somehow, they always end up in the paper.

No. Korman mentioned one salary in the first interview, and a lower salary in the second interview. She accepted the offer in spite of acknowledging the lower salary. If he had lowered the salary after she had accepted, then that would clearly give her the moral right to walk away. But such a thing did not happen.

Korman sounds smug when he tells her that their paths may cross again. But he is absolutely, totally right. For all the lawyers that are churned out of law schools every year, state bars are close-knit societies. Everyone pays dues; everyone goes to the same continuing education classes, and everyone in the same field - in this case criminal defense - will share an elevator many, many times in their careers. Abdala is not only doing herself a disservice by burning bridges with the entire city; she is doing her clients a disservice because nobody in the bar or on the bench will ever do her a favor.

UPDATE: Just got this email, apparently from the father of the applicant:
To All:

My name is George S. Abdala. I am a lawyer in Springfield, Mass. If you are reading this, then no doubt you are aware of the situation that occurred between my daughter, Dianna Abdala, and William A. Korman.

I must first apologize to Mr. Korman for the lack of respect that my daughter showed to you. You in no way were deserving of the degrading remarks that she made towards you. In fact, she should have been grateful
for the opportunity that you had given her. Next, I must apologize to everyone else.

It occurred to me while reading the same forward that I am sure that many of you have read that I have raised a daughter that is not only spoiled, but socially unaware. As a father, I am ashamed that I allowed her out of my house without a shred of integrity. I guess I realized that she
was spoiled, but it took this to have me realize just how much.

You will all, I am sure, be happy to know that going forward my daughter will be without the luxuries that she is used to. I have since sold her car, stopped paying her rent, and totally cut her off from my finances. I guess now she will finally see what the real world is like. Hopefully she will do as many of you have and learn to work hard to earn the
things in life that she desires.

I do have one request. Since this email has started circulating I have received a rather substantial backlash. I am starting to lose some of my business. Although I do in part take responsibility for the person that my daughter has become, I do not wish it to affect my business. If you could please refrain form forwarding the emails anymore I would greatly appreciate it.

Thank you for taking time out of your busy days to read this. I wish all of you the best that life has to offer.

Sincerely,
