Law firm hosts Global Fairness Initiative meeting
A couple of weeks ago, law firm Edwards, Angell, Palmer & Dodge hosted a meeting of the board of directors of the Global Fairness Initiative (GFI). GFI is a nonprofit organization that focuses on economic globalization and how it can improve the lives of people in need. The meeting included discussions of how GFI can raise awareness among donors and increase fundraising efforts. Bill Clinton is the board's chairman. Edwards, Angell, Palmer & Dodge employs more than 550 attorneys and provides a variety of legal services in different states.
Nonprofit legal aid organization accused of scamming the elderly
Are a Yellow Pages ad and an answering machine all you need to run a scam? According to attorneys at Morrison & Foerster, LLP, in San Francisco, that seems to be the case. The attorneys have filed a complaint in the California Superior Court against the "Legal Center for Legal Aid" stating that they believe scammers are targeting elderly residents being evicted from their homes. Scams perpetuated by so-called nonprofit legal aid organizations claiming to offer help to the economically disadvantaged are apparently a growing trend.
Lawyers flee Southern California fires
Many San Diego law firms have been evacuated, and some of their attorneys have even lost their homes. The Carmel Valley region is home to many firms, including Sheppard, Mullin, Richter & Hampton; Latham & Watkins; and Cooley Godward Kronish, just to name a few. Many attorneys and legal professionals still fear losing their homes in the savage fires that have been going on for days. At Luce, Forward, Hamilton & Scripps, a partner's home and a chief operating office have already lost their battles with the fires, which still continued to blaze at press time.
