    Some of my best college experience was at Tidewater Community College while I was earning my associates degrees in paralegal/legal assisting. I had some of the most fascinating professors (attorneys) as well as fellow classmates wherein the platform for teaching was engaging and always challenging. I am very proud of this degree and find it is of more worth than a certificate in the same field.

Questions & Answers

What is compliance?
Adhering to the laws, rules and policies. This is achieved through maintaining the highest standards in not just your professional life but your personal life, as well. Integrity is everything.

While it sounds like a cliché, it is true that the tone for a company is set at the top and you know that they say about things rolling down hill- they do.

Pressure to Produce will cause Compliance violations

In expanding on micromanagement and the pressure to produce is one of the leading causes of compliance and ethics violations.

What is this SOX all about?
SOX is the acronym for the 2002 Sarbanes Oxley Act. The Act is a direct result of the Enron Scandal (news clip is in the Resources Section). SOX is an act that put Corporate America in the mainstream legal hot seat with all kinds of regulations that when violated will result in expensive fines, criminal and civil penalties. While SOX was geared towards only publically traded companies the financial industry and its regulators see most of the provisions to be applicable to all companies as a form of ethical business  practices (e.g. Best Business Practices).  Some of the main points are that a CEO must certify financial reports as to their accuracy; there must be an audit of the records and systems and this time the auditor is banned from doing other work for the company being audited (the auditor is only there to do the audit), and of course there must be a compliance program.  The best way to think of SOX is this- even if you are not a publically traded company (i.e. a private company) you better have a working compliance program and ethical business practices.


Dodd Frank?

Another financial industry compliance act implemented in 2010. It is a direct result of the 2008 financial crisis.
In looking at Dodd-Frank and comparing it to SOX, Dodd has more of a consumer or tax payer protection focus. For one The CFPB (Consumer Financial Protection Board) was formed with this Act. And lets look at section 165. It requires large financial institutions to file annual reports that provides the plans for their institution to be liquidated in a "rapid and orderly fashion"  to avoid any harm to or bail out from the American taxpayer. In the event they are unable to do so in such plan (as regulated or determined by the Fed and FDIC) then they will need to simplify their plan or liquidate assets to do so.  That is a tall order for large financial institutions but paves the path of transparency and protection for the American market place and tax money.

What is the CFPB?

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. A place to begin before you do anything with your money or credit or if you are having issues with a creditor.

Stay tuned on the legal structure of the CFPB. As a result of

Gramm Leach Bliley Act (aka GLBA aka Financial Services Modernization Act of 1999)
  • Repealed the Glass–Steagall Act which prevented a financial institution from functioning as a bank, insurance company and an investment firm and the conflict of interest provision that kept an officer of one of those such companies from being employed simultaneously in the consolidated or one of  new ones.
  • While GLBA allows for the option to consolidate the placement  and workability of consumers money and other intangible assets, it prohibits the disclosure of their personal financial information via The Financial Privacy Rule
  • GLBA also requires financial institutions and any companies to ensure safeguards to such information via The Safe Guard rule. 
  • ATM Fee Disclosure

Did you know?
According to Brian K. Payne's White Collar Crime book that "...the same technology that makes Facebook possible is the same technology that provides the opportunity for computer crimes..." @241

Did you also know that "... Mark Zuckerberg- the founder of Facebook- has been accused of various white collar crimes relating to [the] creation of [Facebook] and the administration of it." ibid

It's true! "As an undergrad at Harvard he worked... on a ...social network called ConnectU." ibid [Facebook was created  after his time there and he was sued for stealing ConnectU's source code] ibid

What on earth is a Source Code you ask?

According to Oxford Dictionary: A Source Code is: A text listing of commands to be compiled or assembled into an executable computer program. www.oxforddictionaries.com  2014

However what you should really know is- Black Law  defines a Source Code as:

A text listing of commands to be compiled or assembled into an executable computer program.If it is not included with the software sold to the public, source code is protected by trade secret laws as well as copyright and patent laws.SOURCE CODE, Black's Law Dictionary (9th ed. 2009)

the two "Did you knows"are cited from:
White Collar Crime by Brian K. Payne 2014 page 241

Will you accept a position with just any company, if the money is right?
Absolutely not! Unethical and power driven people work everywhere. While income is at the top of a lot of our priority lists, people will leave one way or another when they are unhappy.


How do you feel about micromanagement?

I interpret (from experience) micromanagement to account for every moment of your time on the clock for an employer and daily assessments and heightened pressure to produce. In the legal world it is counterproductive.

Contract Administration


Time and again resources that are negotiating and/or binding an organization in an agreement are clueless of the ramifications. Some strictly rely on the automated tools for determining document or redline changes without actually reading the contract. Some fall for the line of “we only use our contract- sorry it’s a deal breaker”. Some don’t even assess the big picture of the agreements impact as they are more...
