Let's dispel a few myths about leaving the law

 These common misconceptions are holding you back from leaving the law: 

  • It’s too difficult for me to find a mentor or help 
  • There is no else out there suffering from this 
  • I’m all alone 
  • It’ll costs too much to leave 
  • I’ll have to leave my job right now in order to leave the law 
  • I’ll never find out what jobs there are beyond Transaction and Litigation 
  • I’m too old … or I’m too young … to ever leave 
  • I’m too busy to find a way to leave the law 
  • I will disappoint my friends and family 
  • I’ll lose my whole identify I’ve carefully crafted if I leave the law 


I’m here to tell you that these are just myths. I have personally worked with all types of unhappy attorneys who were able to drive through these obstacles to find a non-law, alternative career
