Ask a Business Lawyer. Get Business Law Questions Answered ASAP.
QUESTION FOR LUCY ONLY Not sure this is a question for you but as you are both a lawyer and a fraud consultant here, I was wondering if you can help me either with providing the following information, or with advising me where I can typically find it. I will not disclose the name to begin with, as I will post a link so you can view next if needed, and I will remove the page behind the link, for confidentiality purpose, after. The information I need to know is for which lawfirms a person X licensed lawyer of the FL Bar, has worked iwith from 1982 to 1987. The search could be restricted to the Souther Florida counties (3). The person has stated that she was working for 3 lawfirms, it's public information, but the names of the lawfirms are not disclosed and I need to verify who they are. The answer is to find the paper directories of lawyers back then ??
Thank you for the information.The admission to the bar in 1982 is verified. I checked the newspapers archives online, but there is nothing to be found.How does one gets the paper directories typically ?I would assume that calling the local association of the FL Bar would be an option,to find out if they have any paper directories of these years ?Lexis Nexis has a special and additional program for judicial investigation.It is part of the "LexisNexis Total Litigator" and especially the
"SmartLinx" search.Do you think that I can post a question on this forum asking for a lawyer who has that tool of Lexis nexis to make a search on someone?
