David Jampol ex-lawyer

Summary: An ex-lawyer disbarred for stealing from clients landed a decade-long job teaching by lying about his past.

Would you not be known to do a thing, never do it. Sound, simple, practical advice, but assuming that like David Jampol, 58, you’ve been disbarred from practicing law, and this for stealing $64,000 from clients, how to move on? After all, having a criminal history is sure to haunt you.

And so Jampol lied about his past. When applying for a job with the Department of Education a decade ago, he was asked on the “moral questionnaire” whether he ever “had a professional certificate or license denied, revoked, or suspended,” and he answered “No.”

We can expect in this life that if we’ve done some wrong, sooner or later, others will know. In the case of the DOE, they could have simply googled David to discover a 2004 court document detailing his dealings with former clients. Why they didn’t do this they have as yet not explained.

Jampol, meanwhile, in the past ten years, has taught at the Urban Action Academy on the Canarsie campus in Brooklyn.

Sometimes it isn’t a matter of simply being moral, but it also is a matter of being practical, to own up to past mistakes that could otherwise return as a condemning specter.
