  1. That person that was not an attorney arrested through Nye County...look at that hair. What a scumbag. Who would hire that clown?

    1. I have seen plenty of attorneys who look way worse than this guy.

    2. He is handsome. He looks like he should work for Naqvhi the "Tom Brady" of attorneys.

  2. Curious as to how many people have been arrested, charged with, and convicted of, these same charges in Clark County? I'm guessing none, even though it is rampant here.

    1. UPL has been prosecuted in Clark County (see Charles Radosevich-- who really got in trouble for forging Judge Gonzalez's name) but it is EXTREMELY rare. While the SBN claims to want to go after notarios and others, it does nothing. The CCDA does even less to prosecute. The problem is that if you don't claim to be an attorney, it is a difficult crime to prosecute just on the basis that what they are doing SHOULD be done by an attorney.

    2. The state bar is a jobs program

    3. Judge's don't care about "paralegals" practicing law without a license. It will be remembered at election time, and when I donate money.

      Delete
    4. @3:59-- OK so you will donate money to other candidates who will get on the bench and also not care? Which judicial candidates are running on a platform for getting rid of notaries? And what would you propose judges do about it? You aren't making it better.

    5. @ LawyerBird- The State Bar has turned into a full employment division for underwhelming attorneys. There is maybe one lawyer there now that I would ever want on my side in Court (and no it is not Stan any longer).

      Delete
    6. 5:30, yes I am. At least I talk about it. Navarro cares about it. Kearns cares about it. All a joke, just like the State Bar.

      Delete
    7. Navarro is not elected, so your $100 donation is not going to help, but keep talking.

    8. 11:54, I hope you're not a lawyer, because your reading comprehension is not any better than a fifth grader.

      Delete
    9. 11:54 here. I am a notary. Are you scared you will lose clients to a non-lawyer. UPL is not that big of a deal. It really only hurts the people who hire the notaries or paralegals.

      Delete
    10. Notary=paralegal. I knew it.

      Delete
    11. You could not even afford a $100 contribution.

      Delete
    12. Yet I have more clients than you and make more money than you. At least you talk about it though. You are a true activist for change. Your problem is you are a talker and not a doer. I will give you a discount if you need help in court.

      Delete
    13. 9:02, keep up the pipe dreams you piece of shit. You make more money than me, that is funny. You are so stupid, you would show up to court as a notary, you fucking imbecile.

      Delete
    14. The talker is so upset. Who knew someone could get so upset from a blog that is anonymous. Mr. Tough guy. Do you talk that way to your $.99 a minute phone sex partner? Have notaries taken that much business from you. Would you like to sublease an office? I will give you office space at a discount. Maybe even throw you a case or two.

      Delete
    15. 10:11, I want no part of your clients, dumber than you are, if that is even possible. Notary, you probably don't even have a high school education. Keep ripping people off, asshole. Let me give you a list of courts you can appear in while being a notary....Johnson, Cadish, and Cory, to name a few.

      Delete
    16. Can you sublet out of a hostel? How do you know what phone sex partner's charge?

      Delete
    17. You lose a few hearings to a pro se because you suck and now you hate notaries.

      Delete
    18. 6:51, keep displaying your stupidity my notario.

      Delete
    19. I am not the notary trolling you, but you sure seem really upset by some internet notary troll.

      Delete
    20. He is a notary troll. You are the one who keeps bringing it up.

  3. I guess the one positive aspect of Brexit is it will be cheaper to vacation in Britain. I'm sure Scotland is going to GTFO. So, go sooner rather than later.

  4. What is the Bar doing about Marisa Border?

    1. Amen, we are hearing crickets. This is an embarrassment. Good job, Board of Governors.

    2. But if you make a $63.00 human error with the trust account, quickly rectified and harming no one, then God help you.

      Delete
    3. What kind of practice does someone have that they don't have $63 in their trust account? I handle civil litigation, real estate disputes, and some other miscellaneous matters and mine floats from $45k to $70k every few months, but never less than $40k in the past 18 months (and we're only a two attorney firm.)

      Delete
    4. If you are on the LRIS panel you have to sign under penalty and perjury, but Marisa Border kills somebody, and it has been a year, and she is unsure if the Bar will do anything? Are you fucking kidding me? WTH does my $800 a year pay for, Hawaii bar conventions I don't want to go to?

      Delete
    5. I don't know Border. Never heard her name before and had to read the article the other day to even find she was an attorney. She was responsible for the death of a person in an accident. She is paying a HUGE price right now in the criminal justice system for something that in no manner affects her fitness to practice law. Was she convicted of a felony? Because unless and until she is convicted of a "serious crime", SBN will do nothing and let the criminal justice system run its course. And frankly I am fine with that.

      You touch your Trust Account (ever for any personal reason), and the State Bar should rain locusts down on you.

      Delete
    6. HUGE price, YUGE Price. She killed somebody, but she gets to keep her law license. Few years in jail, that is a Yuge Price. Nice to see back posting, 5:39, James Murphy.

      Delete
    7. Wonder if Marissa Border will run for judge? I killed a man, reckless endangerment with my two small children in the car, speeding, risk the lives of the other motor cyclist. Hell, I am game. I will vote for her.

      Delete
    8. The man Marissa Border killed, and his family are paying a huge price. Please, 5:39, you are funny.

      Delete
    9. I was disciplined when I received a DWI, why is Border getting the special treatment? Who does she know?

      Delete
    10. Maybe because it wasn't your first rodeo, 7:23? The Supreme Court dismisses 1st-time misdemeanor DUI discipline proceedings as a matter of course. It's always the same Order: "Such and such self-reported the conviction to the State Bar (You did do that, right?). Because the crime is not one of those specifically enumerated in SCR 111(6) as a 'serious' crime, temporary suspension and referral to the disciplinary board are discretionary with this court. SCR 111(9)"
      "The seriousness of drinking and driving can not be minimized, however, first offense driving under the influence is not the type of offense for which professional discipline is typically imposed."

      So, what did you do that made the Supremes decide to spank you?

      Delete
    11. I did not have the juice Marisa Border had.

      Delete
    12. Marisa Border is "excellent," she killed somebody.

      Delete
    13. 5:39 here-- so let me clarify. I am not saying discipline is not warranted. My question/point was related to the procedural posture of her case because that may answer the question as to why the SBN/NSC has not taken action. Rule 111 says that the Bar acts against attorneys convicted of crimes; has she pled guilty and/or been convicted?   Upon being advised that an attorney subject to the disciplinary jurisdiction of the supreme court has been convicted of a crime, that is what triggers bar counsel to file a petition with the supreme court. Only upon the filing with the supreme court of a petition with a certified copy of proof of the conviction, demonstrating that an attorney has been convicted of a serious crime does the court enter an order suspending the attorney. If she is convicted of a non-felony (see Stubbs) that is not deceit, extortion, bribery, etc., she is not going to be summarily suspended pending discipline unless the conduct adversely reflects on the attorney’s fitness to practice law. No one here said she should not ultimately be disciplined, The question was merely one of where she is in the process which might explain where the State Bar and Supreme Court are in their respective processes.

    14. My understanding with Marisa Border was that it was an unfortunate accident. She was passing/speeding and the biker turned in front of her. The conviction is presumptive on the liability so she is still facing the music on the liability. It was just negligence plain and simple resulting in a deadly accident. It is no different than blowing a stop sign and or a light. There is a big difference between someone who is driving under the influence and going against the traffic resulting in a fatality. But for the fact that the biker made a turn at that precise moment the accident would not have occurred. She has plead guilty to a misdemeanor.

      Delete
    15. 10:04, yes, it is an "accident" when you drive recklessly, speeding and enter in a no pass lane, with two small kids in the vehicle, and you decide that you are more important than others, and kill somebody. You also risk the lives of the other motorcyclists on the road. Blame it on the man she killed, douche.

      Delete
  5. If she pled guilty to a misdemeanor then that explains why the SBN is not moving to summarily suspend her, as 2:45 said.
