Making a big change like starting your own practice requires careful consideration.


I don't think my opinion really matters at this point. He doesn't have a job right now and based on what you have told us, it doesn't sound like he has any offers in the making. What matters is how your husband keeps his practice going and manages to hang on to his current business, meager though it may be. $70,000 in portable business is not enough to make your husband an attractive candidate to other law firms but if he stays unemployed for a period of time, he will probably lose those clients, and then where will he be?
