Alex not practicing attorney
By - Numerous_Property_77
Passing the bar doesn’t automatically make you a licensed attorney. There’s an application process that usually takes months to complete.
He didn’t pass character and fitness
That was my thought as well but didn’t know if we could confirm that
Don’t do this because it implies he alleged to you he was a licensed attorney and now you’re looking into that. That’s unfair.
And furthermore when he passed it on Instagram that he had passed the bar he did imply that he was a practicing attorney and that he had passed the bar and was more than a JD that he was in Esquire so The “unfair” argument kind of flies out the window because it’s exactly what he did
Passing the bar is more than a JD. But representing to a potential client (which is what you sound like when you call like that) that you may practice because you’ve passed the bar is different than posting on Instagram that you’ve passed the bar.
I made it very clear that I know that in JD does not mean you pass the bar Also anyone who saw the Instagram post might become a potential client of his eyesight if I call it I’m not doing anything wrong because he said he passed the bar which implies that he passed character and fitness and is able to be a practicing attorney and a licensed attorney in Florida which she is not if you want to keep fighting we can but you will not win this
1. If you read the model ethics rules, followers on Instagram are NOT considered “potential clients,” and 2. Passing the bar does not imply or represent that you have passed character and fitness because those are 2 entirely different things. You are literally fighting with someone who has passed the ethics test and is close to taking the bar.
And then also you’re not getting your own argument because if somebody calls the bar and says I saw on Instagram that this person passed the bar I’m wondering what his statuses is then they’re not implying that he said he’s an attorney they’re just asking what the statuses so thank you for being a really shitty argumentative wanna be attorney
Your original post said to call and say “you were speaking to him and wanted to know his status. you’ve abandoned your original post to now calling and saying “I only saw on Instagram he passed the bar.” Those 2 sentences imply completely different things.
For calling yourself a lawyer tells people that you’re saying that you pass CNN character and fitness
Please Google lawyer v. attorney. You will quickly learn that the term “lawyer” may be used for someone who only has a JD but is not licensed to practice and “attorney” is used for someone licensed.
Not if you were saying that you’d like to implySaid that he was just a JD but you were wondering if he is going to pursue becoming a licensed attorney and that is what someone would say if they are looking into somebody becoming a licensed attorney and they’re looking into hiring them that does not imply jack shit
That’s just really not information anyone here deserves to know.
I didn’t say we did but I did get the ability to anyone who wants to know and that’s not my problem and it’s not yours either it’s general information you can Google it
Ooooh someone please do this!!
I didn’t realize “fitness” was part of the actual exam/requirements/whatever and thought you were making a joke and I laughed
It’s about how morally fit you are to practice law. It takes 6 mos-1yr and most answers have to match with what you put on your law school app
Whether it be about character fitness or physical fitness, can’t say I’m shocked he didn’t pass
I mean from the beer belly to the racism and shark killing I can’t either
There's no way to know that someone didn't pass character and fitness unless they straight up tell you lol
Well I thought they were making a joke about Alex’s physical fitness so I clearly know nothing about this
Yup - don’t lie on your law school application because it can come back to bite you.
LMAO this made me laugh
I thought that was a joke too 🤣😂
Even if he was licensed, I wouldn’t want his ass to be my lawyer anyways. And if he gave a damn about his “character,” he wouldn’t have signed on for a reality show without scrubbing his social media first and then proceed to act like an insufferable tool bag while he was at it. Oh and who can forget the sociopath/sociology comparison? Moron.
I mean…who would hire him 💀
his dad is why he got on mtv. so yep.
I passed the bar in July and was admitted in December (in a different state and a few years ago). It can take a while.
Do we know for sure that he did actually pass the bar?
No, that’s why OP wrote *allegedly*
His name was on the pass list
It can take a very long time to get barred. Especially since the bar is gearing up for the July exam.
He most likely filed his application at the last minute, took the examination, and is now just waiting to pass CF. Which he will. One of my current law school classmates just passed FL CF and has an objectively worse record than him lol
Rudy Giuliani already exists. They didn’t want to let future Rudy become a lawyer too.
So can he “re-do” the character/fitness after some time has passed or is he degree a waste now?
Most states give you an interview if they don’t immediately pass you on character & fitness. Then if they still don’t pass you, you can appeal.
He can appeal. But it always depends.
He’ll get through C&F but they’ll give him a hard time. Bar associations have admitted violent convicts. If you show contrition and growth and you’re open and candid, you’ve done everything they’ve asked.
He probably didn’t get a flat denial just caught up in the administrative process which is very long in Florida. It can take 2-3 years to get through that if they’ve flagged concerns for the applicant. You wouldn’t get an actual denial until reaching the end of that process and multiple hearings. Most people are ultimately admitted. The process usually begins while the person is still in law school because in Florida you’re allowed to essentially preapply to the bar.
It’s odd, but there’s also two other lawyers I follow/know that don’t practice, one is an insta influencer and another a corrections officer. (Australia based)
It’s called “Ethics” portion of the Bar Exam.
shame ethics no longer exist
I passed the February bar and didn’t get sworn in until October of that year. Florida is brutal in their application process and their C&F review. They go through every tiny detail. It’s takes quite a while.
I also passed the Florida February bar, got my results in April and was licensed in less than a week. I know maybe that’s just my experience but that’s why I’m confused
What is your age range? And when did you submit your application? I had lived in like ten different places since 17-18- they said that was one hiccup. And I submitted right before deadline so I was pushed to the back of the pile. And I had three professional jobs because I went back to law school after starting my career (they got references from each of those jobs) and I went to law school outside of Florida. An older attorney family friend said all of that would factor in to why it took so long. I’m not sure with Alex though- he’s had criminal convictions and other stuff so…
how is you living in different places a hiccup?
Gary doesn’t even come up….
That’s because Gary kompo was never an attorney. He was a chiropractor
AH. I thought Alex was “following” in his fathers footsteps…
Nah his dad is just the Amazon for attorneys and ambulance chasers
This is a hilarious way to describe him. Thank you 😂
I don’t think he practices anymore. He just owns a referral service to other attorneys.
I wonder if that was before or after his DUI. Makes sense though.
Oh that I have no clue about.
probably because he's not that smart. and he works for his dad.
