I didn't stop to think, however, that also started an open season on attempting to intimidate potential, but currently non-candidates. Oh well. For the record, the spin is wrong; in fact, my firm and I parted ways on an exceptionally good basis. I have already referred potential legal clients to them and they have done the same with potential consulting clients.
