NY-26: Alice Kryzan's Career

by on November 1, 2008

For a while now I’ve heard rumors about Alice Kryzan’s legal career… Apparently she worked at quite a few law firms:

Phillips Lytle, LLC
Whiteman Osterman & Hanna
Kryzan & Kolaga
Buchanan-Ingersoll
Harris Beach & Wilcox

That is a lot firms to have worked over 26 years.. especially when the longest stretch she spent at any of them was 6 years.

So what does this tell us about Alice Kryzan? That she jumped around from law firm to law firm?  Okay. But that really leaves us with a big question: Why? According to rumors I have heard she was fired from a few of these firms… 

Alice is running for congress largely on her experience as a lawyer. But it looks like that experience is hardly something to brag about.

    The word is that Alice does not work and play well with others. People that know her don’t like her,

  2. Those are pretty much the same things I have heard.

  3. 6 firms in 26 years is not excessive in any way. In any event, whether Alice “plays well with others” or not is certainly less of a character flaw than, say, hacking into your employer’s computer system to artificially inflate your customers’ credit scores for personal gain, and getting fired for it. Cantankerousness > fraud, IMHO.

  4. Let’s do the math… 6 firms in 26 years… averaging 3 years per firm…

    That is a questionable career if I have ever seen one.

  5. Then you must not know a lot of lawyers, because in private practice – especially in the Buffalo area – it’s completely within normal limits. I know at least 2 or 3 lawyers who have been in practice for about 5 years and have already worked at 3 firms.

    Either way, it’s better than Lee’s “hack ‘n fraud”.

  6. Also, 26/6 = 4.3. Not 3.

  7. Actually it is 5 firms, with an average employment span of 3.2 years.

    A lawyer who has been at three firms in five years is not a very good lawyer.

  9. A lawyer who has been at 3 firms in 5 years is looking for a good opportunity.
