It doesn't end there though. Just as common are cases of unsuspecting jobseekers that send their resume to co-workers, friends, and family for "their opinion." This makes it very easy for the recipients to use the resume as their own if the occasion arises.

Even so, would you feel comfortable with them using your resume, especially if you paid for it to be professionally written by a resume writer?
If you are a recent graduate, a law student, or a lawyer who has only worked for one employer, limiting your lawyer resume to one page may be an easy task. If on the other hand you are an experienced lawyer, or one that has made several transitions, limiting your lawyer resume to one page may be a tall order. In that case, you may need an additional page. However, you can still enjoy the benefits of the "single page" lawyer resume format if you capture the most relevant information on the first page of your resume.
