Why Settle for Cherniak If You Need a Lawyer?

Sorry Jason but there are a lot of lawyers looking for work these days.

Among the ranks of underemployed advocates you'll find the likes of Alberto Gonzales. That's right, he can't find a firm that'll take him in. From TPM Muckraker:

"Alberto R. Gonzales, like many others recently unemployed, has discovered how difficult it can be to find a new job. Mr. Gonzales, the former attorney general, who was forced to resign last year, has been unable to interest law firms in adding his name to their roster, Washington lawyers and his associates said in recent interviews....

"The greatest impediment to Mr. Gonzales's being offered the kind of high-salary job being snagged these days by lesser Justice Department officials, many lawyers agree, is his performance during his last few months in office. In that period, he was openly criticized by lawmakers for being untruthful in his sworn testimony. His conduct is being investigated by the Office of the Inspector General of the Justice Department, which could recommend actions from exonerating him to recommending criminal charges."

Then again, maybe you should stick with Jason.
