The law firm of Preston and Scott LLC, in Salt Lake City, Utah, has been graced with the label of being a "Super Lawyer" firm. Well, isn't that super? What, exactly, does that mean? Nada. Zip. Zilch. Nothing. Getting the label of "Super Lawyer" is about as easy as getting friends on Facebook. There's really nothing beyond that. It's lawyers "friending" other lawyers, if you will, joining the club and saying great and wonderful things about each other so they can get ranked as "Super Lawyers." It's the profession glad-handing themselves to boost their public profiles. Other lawyers vote for you if you vote for them. Shocking, isn't it, that lawyers would stoop to something like that? It's all really just an incestuous thing.
That might fool some people, but not me. Something else that doesn't fool me? How does shared Social Security numbers grab you? I find it extremely interesting that these two legal eagles have other names associated with what purportedly are their social security numbers — or theirs associated with others. Hard to tell for sure. That little nugget alone should cause you to steer a wide course around these two "Super Lawyers." Think about the implications of that. Think about if someone else, or five or six someone else's, were walking around with your Social Security number. Or you with theirs. Makes for some intriguing possibilities, don't you think? Bottom line is no good will come from either of those scenarios. Do you really want to be involved with that, anyway?
