Looking for a job?

Postby Paul Campos » Fri Oct 12, 2012 2:28 pm

5) You must subject yourself to a rigorous, competitive evaluation process.

The Firm utilizes the following hiring process:

* All candidates are allowed to begin a paid contract legal assignment at $20.00/hour. If you apply you will be given an assignment.

* Each day the candidate with the weakest work product will be cut until one candidate remains. This process will take one or two weeks until the final candidate is offered on-going employment. If you have seen reality television shows where contestants are cut from episode to episode such as Top Chef, Top Shot or Project Runway -- it will be like this. Do you have what it takes to be Top Associate?

* If you want to participate you will come to the first day of hiring with your laptop ready to begin. You will be given a group orientation, and then an individual interview. You should be free to work 8 hours per day for the next two weeks to participate in the evaluation.

If you are interested in applying to the Mellen Law Firm please call Molly Bell-Mellen re: "hiring" at ********* between the hours of 12:00 and 5:00 pm on October 3, 4th and 5th.

February 29, 2012

MATTHEW DAVID MELLEN [#233350], 46, of San Mateo was suspended for one year, stayed, placed on one year of probation with a 60-day actual suspension and he was ordered to take the MPRE. If the actual suspension exceeds 90 days, he must comply with rule 9.20 of the California Rules of Court. The order took effect Feb. 29, 2012.


After crashing his car into a median and leaving the scene with his then-wife, Mellen told a police officer he wasn’t wearing his glasses but admitted he’d been drinking. His blood alcohol content was .12 percent. He pleaded no contest to one count but chose to go to trial later, where he and his wife both testified that she had been driving. The jury convicted him of driving under the influence and DUI with a prior.

He stipulated to the conviction and to acting with gross negligence by suggesting his wife was driving.

Are we sure this wasn't intentional suicide?
