You have probably already seen this on your social media, but if not, PLEASE watch this short video of a poor lawyer who used his secretary’s computer for a ZOOM court case – and look what happened.
The comment under this You Tube video was:

Thanks for this! In response, I didn’t mean “poor” in the sense of financial. I meant ‘poor’ in the sense of lacking something… lacking the ability to fix the situation.
Respectfully: “poor” is not exactly an accurate modifier for “lawyer.” After 45 years in the legal field (which among other things wrecked my physical health as well as my writing abilities) I am here to inform you that there is no such thing as a poor lawyer; even lawyers who just recently passed their state’s Bar earn close to a six figure income in larger municipalities. Also, secretaries in law offices banded together (albeit unofficially) decades ago – they are now legal assistants or paralegals dependent upon their skill level/tasks assigned. Nothing against secretaries per se, but the change in label designated a skillset not generally found among the secretarial ranks, long-suffering and multi-talented as those ranks may be: deep familiarity with the body of law and its application to clients’ issues under the supervision of a “poor” lawyer. Sad but gentle smiley added here because civilians usually are unaware of these subtleties.
