Why I Like Being a Lawyer

Quora logo

This post (which, I admit, is a bit off-topic for this blog) is based on a Quora question that I answered.

Q. Attorneys: Why do you love being a lawyer? (Kindly exclude financial reasons.)

A. For me, “love” would be an overstatement. However, I consider myself quite fortunate in that:

  1. I get a great deal of satisfaction from helping my clients (for a startup, everything I do is significant).
  2. As a solo I am my own boss, so I get to do what I want when I want.
  3. My training to “spot the issue” is valuable in all aspects of my life, not just my work.
  4. The vast majority of my professional interactions are with people having greater-than-average intelligence, ambition, integrity and accomplishments.
  5. Because I need to have many clients (startups don’t have a lot of money for legal fees), I learn about many different types of businesses.
