No one caught on

A Newburyport, Mass. attorney formerly with the big personal injury firm of Kreindler and Kreindler has been suspended from practice for two years “after Suffolk County judges ruled she falsely claimed she was also a medical doctor.” The firm reportedly was unaware of the imposture (no one checked, then? ) and cited her nonexistent credential in its promotional materials.

She claimed to have graduated in the top 1% of her class from Columbia Univ. medical school. Not surprising that her attendance , academic performance, and degree from there could not be verified. That appears routine for people in high profile legal positions who say they graduated from Columbia.

“Dr. Friery was a principal dancer and soloist with the Empire State Ballet Theater and a guest soloist for the Canadian National Ballet and the American Ballet Theater. ”

Please tell me that at least this is true… looking at this picture: http://www.boston.com/news/local/massachusetts/gallery/101508_lawyers?pg=2

I think she played that one straight.

“Dr. Friery was a principal dancer and soloist with the Empire State Ballet Theater and a guest soloist for the Canadian National Ballet and the American Ballet Theater. ”

I would bet money that is not true….

Probably more like: “took a few ballet classes when she was 15 at the Empire State Ballet Theater”
