Don’t give up working as an attorney in a law firm. Always work with the best law firm you can for as long as you can.

My typical conversation with law firm attorneys—young and old alike, at top firms and small firms, in large cities and smaller cities—involves their decision (or contemplation) of giving up on law firms completely. That’s right: The majority of law firm attorneys are ready to give up and quit the law firm world (or “trade down” to a law firm that will not challenge them). You are not alone by any stretch of the imagination. Most attorneys are in your shoes and thinking the very same thing you are.
