Best Career Transition For Lawyers?

” Well, for me it was maybe becoming a consultant. I don’t see myself ever returning to private practice because the only way you can make money is by putting people through hell. Also, I just don’t want to do that anymore.

Do you have any final words of wisdom?

I think one thing people forget is that litigation isn’t all about money; there are other values involved here as well. It gives you an opportunity to help other people and help solve problems in society—that may be social or economic problems but they still exist regardless of whether or not your client gets paid whatever he thinks he should get paid for what he thinks he should do with his property. There are still things called justice issues out there, so helping groups like consumer protection associations who work on those issues really keeps lawyers working on real professional matters rather than being purely about making a lot of money off some stupid person suing somebody else over some dumb contract dispute or something like that.
