Lawyers have the highest depression rates, highest pressure, lowest popularity ratings, and the longest hours of almost any profession that exists. No wonder that according to a recent poll 70% of lawyers surveyed said they would start a new career if they could. If you are disillusioned by the realities of law practice or want to get into a different type of law, then you can start a new career. In Alternative Careers for Lawyers, you'll hear from many people who managed successful transitions: one of them is an NBC news anchor, another started her own bicycle tours company, and yet another built a $20 million attorney temp agency.

We'll show you how to manage every step of this uncertain yet ultimately liberating process:

Deciding whether to change careers or just switch jobs
Choosing which new careers to pursue
Re-tailoring your resume for non-legal careers like education, consulting, publishing, and sales and marketing
Networking, interviewing, furthering your education, and more

Lawyers, You Can Revitalize Your Career Starting Today.

Whether you are in law school or a senior partner at an Am Law 100 firm, this book can help you revitalize your career to find the perfect job and create your ideal career.

Benjamin Barton, a law professor at the University of Tennessee, in his recent book on the legal profession, stated that only “44 percent of BigLaw lawyers report satisfaction with their careers.” According to a 2014 Gallup poll, only 32.4% of professionals in the United States were engaged with their jobs. And over 15% were actively disengaged.

There is a disconnect between lawyer’s passions and their work. Some

lawyers detest their jobs. Others tolerate their work for the paycheck. Either way, these lawyers are detached and dissatisfied with their jobs. They desire something deeper and more meaningful in their work and career.

This book can help you revitalize your career and achieve success, prosperity, and personal fulfillment. Success, prosperity, and personal fulfillment as you, and only you, define those terms.

The Professional Prosperity For Lawyers System

Through the career revitalization system in this book, you will use your strengths to achieve goals reflecting your personal vision of an ideal career. You will explore jobs aligned with who you are and create a career path you have only dreamed of pursuing.

Your career revitalization is based on two central premises.

First, lawyers must view their career as a business. Whether you are a lawyer at the largest law firm in the world or are a sole practitioner, you are a business. Your career should be run like a business.

Second, run your business as an entrepreneur if you want to be successful, prosperous, and personally fulfilled.

If you want to realize your dreams of a perfect job and ideal career, the career revitalization process provides the framework. Use the framework, follow the process, and take the actions. You will get your perfect job and create your ideal career. A career giving you the freedom to do the work you what you want to do. When you want to do it. And, with the people you want to do it with.

Imagine getting up in the morning looking forward to your day. Being rested and full of energy. Controlling your schedule. Working on projects that interest and excite you. Collaborating with people you like and respect. Taking time off to spend with family and friends. Having time for leisure activities or working on projects outside your job.

This career revitalization system is grounded in the practices, processes and actions of many lawyers who are successful, prosperous and personally fulfilled. You will live your dreams by implementing the career revitalization process.

Why I Can Help You Revitalize Your Career

I had a successful legal career, developed a book of business over $3.5 million, was an equity partner at two Am Law 100 firms, was an in-house counsel at a publicly traded investment bank, went from in-house counsel to a law firm partner and left the law on several occasions.

Most importantly, I know how you can achieve success, prosperity and personal fulfillment, and I have a strong desire to help you discover the path to your ideal career and life.

I also endured decades of boredom and stress as a practicing lawyer. I disliked much of my work and was frequently disengagement from it. Substance abuse, bouts of depression, divorce, and financial issues are part of my career story. And, consideration of suicide on more than one occasion. I could not enjoy the fruits of my career “success” story.

I am now on a mission. A mission to help you create an epic career of success, prosperity and personal fulfillment.

Now is the time to take action. Start today by buying and reading this book.

Product Description:
Build a legal career in one of the hottest 21st century employment areas! In his 21st Century Legal Career Series, Richard L. Hermann researches, evaluates, and predicts where the employment opportunities are and will be for law graduates. Volume 17, Elder Law: Riding the Age Wave, spotlights a practice area often overlooked or deemed slow-moving and stodgy by legal career seekers. Not anymore. That all changed on January 1, 2011, when the first Baby Boomer turned 65. Baby Boom demographics are unprecedented. Beginning in 2011 and not ending until 2029, 80 million have, are, and will turn 65 at the rate of 10,000 a day every day. That’s a lot of potential clients. This most populous and prosperous generation ever is now confronting both the health and financial issues attendant upon age. And demand for elder law advice and legal services is not exclusive to seniors. The potential client pool also includes millions of Generation Xers and Millennials concerned about their senior relatives’ financial, care giving, quality of life, and succession issues. Elder Law focuses on the growing epidemic of financial fraud targeting older Americans, which costs seniors an estimated $2.9 billion annually. Elder financial abuse is where financial services meet social services. It is also where legal practitioners can hop on board an emerging, highly remunerative practice area that is creating legal and JD-Advantage jobs throughout the nation. Highlights include: • Defining “Elder Law” • The Astonishing Numbers • Elder Financial Abuse: the fastest-growing and most “monetizable” practice subspecialty • Why Is Elder Law Hot? • Where the Jobs Are • JD-Advantage Job Opportunities • Positioning Yourself for an Elder Law Job • Compensation • Advance Notice of Elder Law Job Opportunities • The Future Despite the ravages of the Great Recession, Boomers are aging up blessed with more wealth than any other generation in history. The average net worth of 65-and-over U.S. households is more than $200,000, triple that of any other age cohort and by far the highest in history. This massive senior population is served by almost 90,000 residential and other institutions, including assisted living facilities, nursing homes, home healthcare agencies, retirement homes, hospitals, dialysis centers, adult day care facilities, hospices, and senior centers, among other service providers. Hermann provides a guide to the Elder Law practice area, which is gaining prominence, and producing career opportunities in law firms of all sizes as well as financial services companies and governments at all levels.
