My law practice is nearing 52 years. It began with a dual commitment to law and to physics (applied)/engineering. A major commitment has been teaching business law and tax at Columbia University, Graduate School of Business (1970-1995) and on visiting professorships at Stanford University, Graduate School of Business (1978) and Harvard University, Graduate School of Business (1981).
After attending the Naval Supply Corps School in Athens, Ga. (http://www.georgiaencyclopedia.org/articles/government-politics/navy-supply-corps-school) for three months in 1957, I served aboard the USS Tarawa (CVS40) as a supply officer for 21 months (1957-1959 (see photo of the Tarawa annexed)).
Important Notice: My current law practice commitments have been qua lawyer, professor, author, and scholar. Currently I am concentrating on completing written works in progress for publication. The completion of a long-delayed book on certain aspects of international business law is a priority. I am also working on several articles and posts on current legal issues. Therefore, I have not been accepting new matters from clients except in extraordinary circumstances, nor have I sought to teach any courses. My registering in AVVO is not to market my practice to clients (pre-existing or new). I do not register, pay, or participate in any way in, or pay any marketing or any other fee to, AVVO, for a recommendation or referral. My AVVO registration profile is 85% complete to make clear that my registration is limited to, and for my activity as, an educator and is for educational purposes only. See New York Ethical Opinion 1132 (8/8/17) (re paying non-lawyers for a recommendation or referral) available at NYSBA, ONE ON ONE (Vol. 38, No. 2 (Summer/Fall 2017)).
