Lawyers are tanking in NY state. Due to the economy, fees are way down - and harder to come by. Less M&A activity, because companies are not merging and acquiring. The only lawyers making money are personal injury parasitic scum. I think you would be shocked at what lawyers don't make.Good for her! Glad to see that it wasn't an illegal, lawyer, doctor or someone that has been on the "system" for generation after generation. The only bad thing is it wasn't me, lol.
Law firms closing, a glut of newly minted lawyers with no place to go... it's bleak for the law business. My next door neighbor, who is a partner at a large local firm, whines constantly about his income declining over the past five years. I try to feign sympathy.
Medicine, on the other hand, is booming.
