resolved to the customer's satisfaction
It is peculiar how a small estate planning firm has decided to position itself as a full-service law firm, and hire a former government lawyer with very poor skills to launch a securities and broker dealer compliance practice. Sylvia Scott represented our small public company in connection with SEC compliance issues. Other than the shockingly high bill from Freeman Freeman & Smiley, there was nothing that stood out with Sylvia Scott. She had to research the most basic issues - the kind legal questions that our general counsel (3 years out of law school) knew from the top of his head. The bottom line is that we made a poor choice in lawyers (and law firms) - an expensive lession for next time.
