In this economy, many lawyers are facing an unanticipated fork in the road. Layoffs leave some lawyers contemplating an exit from the profession, others considering whether to launch a solo practice, and others still looking to shift practice areas in hopes of finding a new position.
I recently watched a video of a presentation for the Georgia Bar Association by my friend and colleague Monica Parker of LeavingTheLaw.com, in which she offers a 3-step process for leaving practice. It seems to me that the process is equally applicable (with some modification) to other professional changes. The video is about an hour long… Pour a cup of coffee, grab a pen and paper, and prepare to think through your next steps. View the video here.
