Sweet. There you have it.
This is the sort of soul crushing response I was expecting, and i appreciate it. I thought my lack of compliance with the terms of probation, thus far, would pose more of barrier to me as well.
My plan is to complete the terms of probation, which I think I can accomplish in less than a week, fax the proof to the Bar analyst, and go from there.
It seems to me that you think I have little to no shot of being licensed without a licensing attorney, and still not a great shot even with one, is that right?
Thanks again for your in depth response. Even though it isn't good news, it's the real news, and much appreciated.
Re: "It seems to me that you think I have little to no shot of being licensed without a licensing attorney, and still not a great shot even with one, is that right?"
Very likely you can ultimately be licensed. It will likely take longer than you are hoping. You will probably have to make some commitments and some long-range courses of action that you were not anticipating (although you should have). It will cost you some unexpected money for programs, experts, assessments, and skilled licensing counsel.
But soul-crushing is when they have you on video-tape with the weapon in your hand. This is a problem, a legal problem. Lawyers are problem-solvers. You have a legal problem, you need a legal problem solver. And you need to begin to see the architecture of the solution to the problem as a sustained course of conduct, not a single event or burst of activity.
I understand. I think saving time and stress in trying to come up with my own solution when I know next to nothing about this whole process will make a good licensing attorney worth while, like you've said.
Can you take my case and help me work through this? Or recommend another attorney?
Thanks again for you help.
