A Reason to be in the Legal Profession?

This is an example of how being a good lawyer can be more lucrative than being a good software engineer, teacher, or accountant.

Two years ago today I began a project for Amazon.com and that was the first billed minute of my own practice after I left the mother firm. A couple of days later Fred at Richemont sent over an assignment. Jane at Bird and Bird was another early supporter.

Today Schwimmerlegal has over 2000 lawyers and annual billings of over US$1.4 billion. It is the sole tenant in the 80 story office tower looming over Bayberry Drive in Mt. Pleasant, NY. And we still provide the best value in copyright, trademark and domain name law.

Choose your career carefully. I am not saying you should become a lawyer to make loads of money. I am only saying that some careers have greater financial potential than others.
