So far, the Young Lawyers Section has swept the challenge, winning all four years. In that time, nearly $15,000 has been raised in ticket sales alone - all of it going to Legal Aid of Southeastern PA!

MBA Member Quick Tips - Scam Alert!
Quick Tips

One of our members has notified us of a potentially dangerous and widespread scam. A potential client visited his office for representation on a wrongful termination case. The client provided supporting documents validating the employer (Tractor Supply Company - Harleysville, PA) and situation, all of which appeared completely legitimate.The attorney agreed to represent him and the client provided the attorney with a cashier's check for a significant amount ($100K+). A few days later, the attorney received a call from the client claiming to be out of the country (Mexico) and asking the attorney to wire him those funds immediately so he can purchase new equipment for a new company start-up. Luckily, the attorney did not provide that money as the cashier's check still hadn't cleared (and eventually bounced).

This case was reported to the authorities so if you have experienced this same scam, or would like to view related documents, please contact Nancy Paul at 610-279-9660, ext. 202.
