Sounds like hard work and accomplishments are a novel concept for you. Lol No amount of money can change your personal reputation so why make a fool of yourself in any area of your life?

People who win major jackpots and lose their basic good sense, seem to end up broke.

I Agree!

    Apparently this will be a novel concept for you. Getting disbarred, especially for something you do on purpose, doesn't diminish the accomplishment of having passed the bar in the first place, nor does it effect whatever work you've already done. I guess it will also be a novel concept that the post you responded to does absolutely nothing to indicate what Murgatroyd actually thinks about hard work, accomplishment, or what quitting says about the person who quit.

    Anybody who quits their job with no notice, especially in the middle of the workday, is walking out on an obligation they made voluntarily. It doesn't matter whether it's somebody flipping burgers at McDonald's, a lawyer, or this woman.  Quitting on the spot tells us that they're a person who doesn't honor their commitments unless circumstances force them to.

      Hmmm..sounds like someone has been sanctioned or disbarred...lol. So much for your oath. You give attorneys a bad name. If you don't view dIsbarment as wiping out a legal career, you must never have had much of a career. As Marilyn would say...jejejeje.

        You're welcome to think whatever you like, but since you've got absolutely no idea what my career is or how it has gone it's all just a product of your own psyche.

        Disbarment may stop somebody from many of the things that attorneys typically do, but it doesn't have to wipe out a career, even if it's a legal career.  More importantly, as was pointed out in the post that started this, losing a career, especially when it's voluntary, doesn't mean much when you've got $140 million in your bank account. Other than your fevered imaginings, that's all this is about.

            I'd quit right away after all I live in an AT-WILL STATE.  Congrats to her.
