Elizabeth Warren’s law license problem

As detailed below, there are at least two provisions of Massachusetts law Warren may have violated.  First, on a regular and continuing basis she used her Cambridge office for the practice of law without being licensed in Massachusetts.  Second, in addition to operating an office for the practice of law without being licensed in Massachusetts, Warren actually practiced law in Massachusetts without being licensed.

Warren refused to disclose the full extent of her private law practice when asked by The Boston Globe.  If Warren denies that she has practiced law in Massachusetts without a license, Warren should disclose the full extent of her private law practice.  The public has a right to assess whether Warren has failed to comply with the most basic requirement imposed on others, the need to become a member of the Bar of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts in order to practice law in and from Massachusetts.

1. Warren Is Not Licensed To Practice Law In Massachusetts

Warren is not licensed to practice law in Massachusetts.  Warren’s name does not turn up on a search of the Board of Bar Overseers attorney search website (searches just by last name or using Elizabeth Herring also do not turn up any relevant entries).

I confirmed with the Massachusetts Board of Bar Overseers by telephone that Warren never has been admitted to practice in Massachusetts.  I had two conversations with the person responsible for verifying attorney status.  In the first conversation the person indicated she did not see any entry for Warren in the computer database, but she wanted to double check.  I spoke with her again several hours later, and she indicated she had checked their files and also had spoken with another person in the office, and there was no record of Warren ever having been admitted to practice in Massachusetts.

Warren’s own listing of her Bar admissions is consistent with not being licensed in Massachusetts.  In a June 25, 2008 CV  Warren listed only Texas and New Jersey.

    Interesting article; “the ‘person’ I spoke to said”: Ms. Warren is not licensed in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts in order to practice law.

    The way the article is written; the write ‘insinuates’ and negates to show details other than ‘heresay’ echoing from the other end of the phone and reads more like a suspense novel instead of confronting their ‘enemy’ to be conquered.

    I say this from experience, as is proud progressing NYS Conservative in King James first Empire RePublic within the New World. And this is also similar to the slander Ms. Warren has endured regarding the Indigenous peoples of this ‘new world’ of whol-e ghost_person corporatism “Corporate_Citizen vs. inclusive people huemanity….

    How the Neo_Conservatives came to hijack “we the fulcrum” between the ‘solid-ideas of the Democrats and the financial expertise of the ‘then’ RePublican’s with huemanity for all and ‘absent’ of manufactured sickness, is beyond me except for our daily “Dow_Chemical_Monsanto” DIE_T enabling physical-sufferings too numerous to list!

    Yes, manufactured sickness is the only ‘absolute’ enemy of physical body people; instead we have ‘physical body’ people as the ‘enemy’ of the “Corporate_Citizen” and people having strict regulations upon them for the ‘protection’ of the “Corporate_Citizen” as a “gift from god” as can be viewed in Mormon theology of a CEO to reign over the “State_RePublic’s” where the “Ghost Person Corporate Citizen” is the NWO “public” of the Masonic RePublic’s…

    Yes, manufactured sickness is the only ‘absolute’ enemy of “we” the physical body people; instead we have ‘physical body’ people as the ‘enemy’ of the “Corporate_Citizen” and people having strict regulations upon us, for the ‘protection’ of the “Corporate_Citizen” as a “gift from god”. This can be viewed in Mormon theology ‘manufactured’ prophecy where a CEO would reign over the “State_RePublic’s” where the “Ghost Person Corporate Citizen” is the NWO “public” of the Masonic RePublic’s and people the ‘sickness’ commodity for ‘pharmaceutical’ sickness maintenance…
