Yeah, and in order to turn left you have to get in the right-hand lane and turn right. Who knew?

Its most sad, that New Jersey doesn't want to come out of the dark ages and usher in progress.

Sue Wittie

The bona fide office rule does not create responsiveness or accountability. The New Jersey bar-tenders seem to think imposing bricks-and-mortar requirements will make a derelict lawyer answer the phone or stop hiding behind the front office excuses of "busy" or "in court." This position misses the mark. Requiring a commercial rental and formal office does not create competence in lawyering.

This ruling by the New Jersey Bar is out of touch with modern reality. Its effect will simply keep the cost of legal services unnecessarily high. When the Bar of any state acts in this fashion, it risks losing the ability to regulate itself and having that regulation placed in the hands of a government agency more in tune with the economic needs of the public. Do we really want that?
