The other one I'm curious about is DUI defense. Unlike a lot of criminal law, a lot of these defendants have money and really need as favorable an outcome as possible.
As a former restaurateur, and current lawyer, I would say that owning a profitable restaurant is more likely than graduating top 10% from a Tier 1 school.
My comment was mostly tongue in cheek, but frankly, my advice to anybody considering buying or starting a restaurant is this: most people go into business for improved family time, freedom to set their own schedules and to make more money than they could with a job.. The vast majority of restauranteurs don't get any of the those three things.
* * * Higher Ed was good to me so I decided to pursue a Master's in Higher Ed Admin and work my way up, but my heart and soul wasn't in it. For the last five year all I can tell you is that going to work for something that you don't truly enjoy is the most difficult thing in the world. I loath every morning and am elated at 5:00 p.m. everyday. * * *
