Would You Want to Work Here?


At a kiosk in the middle of a Boynton Beach mall?
Just south of the food court and past the $15 "designer style" jewelry stand is an unusual mall kiosk staffed not with vendors hawking holiday ware but attorneys offering legal advice.

The Law Booth at the Boynton Beach Mall was opened Nov. 1 by three Palm Beach County attorneys who said they saw a need for legal counseling outside normal business hours and the traditional office setting.

Founded by Melva Rozier, Richard Carey and Paul Burkhart, the stand, which sits outside American Eagle Outfitters, is typically open from about 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. with "Walmart"-priced advice on legal matters including foreclosure, bankruptcy, estate planning and family law.

They were even open at 4 a.m. on Nov. 25 for Black Friday shoppers.
Ok, at first blush I thought this was preposterous but now I think it's kinda genius.

It's true you're not at a large law firm on Brickell, getting paid a lot of money to service a client who would have no idea whether or not you got fired the next day.

You're where your clients are -- at the mall, shopping of course -- but you're providing immediate help to real people with real legal problems.

And you're working.

Could be worse, right?

I rate it several levels above:

advertising...

on TV;

on the Radio;

in a newspaper;

on the side of a bus;

on a bus bench;

on a car (shrink wrap);

in the New Times next to hookers;

and finally, one of the worst:

through self-promotional YouTube videos at Breakfast meetings;
