what are your plans for after law school???
« on: April 19, 2004, 10:51:08 AM »
hey guys, the more I read about what paths a fresh lawyer can take after law school, the more I get confused.
So, tell me, what makes more money, to be a partner in a BIGLAW, or practicing solo, like in malpractice (getting that fatty one third). I mean, John Edwards, took the later path, and his furtune is estimates between 15-64 millions. I mean, i guess that even if you are a partner in wachtell you may not make that amount of money in that little amount of money(he is in his forties for God's sake).
But isnt being a solo lawyer(of course after some years in a firm) a little risky. Is it again a take it all or nothing case?????
thanks guys

I'm gonna get drunk until my wife tells me to straighten out and my daddy buys me a baseball team.
