Taft and others have a proven track record. Don't go with a DL school that has no attorney alumni. You can verify their claims by checking the Cal Bar pass rates. And if you do not want to travel to California to take the exams, this is not for you. Finally do you have the time - figure 20 hours a week minimum for the next 4 or 5 years. DL success is time intensive because it depends on rote memory and essays. If you are outside California, you will be limited to federal practice - Immigration, Tax, Veterans Disability, Social Security and a few other esoteric fields. Insurance is a good background for Social Security Disability, Veterans Disability. The latter two fields have training and seminars available through professional orgs like NOSSCR.
