I have been reading some articles, biographies and visiting several law office websites to find out about being a plaintiff trial lawyer.
It seems to me that it is well worth it working off of contingency fees, especially because one can choose which cases to accept and which to decline.
If the money in trial lawyering far exceeds (for the most part) BigLaw salaries, why do so many stay at BigLaw?
And what's the path for becoming a lawyer like the one I mentioned?
I'm not really sure what they're called. . .personal injury lawyers?
If anyone could offer more insight, I'd appreciate it.
