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.
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.

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.

You're welfare system should have a clause that any active recipient, if they win the lottery, has to turn it over to the state. Or at least reimburse the state for what they have received before the rest of the pot is distributed to them.
