jclay - That sounds too good to be true, turducken. I assume you could throw PI nuisance cases into the mix? Hey, maybe they fired her for being black and she tripped on the bunched-up rug as she left in tears.

If it was that easy to make money, how is the market not saturated with these lawyers?


The market is indeed saturated with these guys. I do employment defense, and these guys afford me a very comfortable living.

I know what it is like to be you, if only for a few days. From Monday morning to Thursday morning I basically didn't sleep and worked straight through. It sucked.

I'm on a weird shift this week.  Once a year, for one week, I have to work nights, so I'm in a different office from Monday-Friday 4 - midnight, and on call from midnight to 9 AM during the week and 24 hours over the weekend.  BONUS:  I can wear shorts and sandals, and I sit around doing nothing but play on the computer and watching TV waiting for the phone to ring.  Tonight, it didn't, so hooray!

im beginning to think it is an absolute requirement UNLESS you are in a highly specialized expert...and of course there are exceptions to the rule...but to deal with all the bad personalities and politics necessary to get ahead, it almost seems like you must be a calloused asshole (see steve72)
