Ask A Legal Recruiter

Entering my 2nd year as a medical malpractice (insurance) defense litigator. My billables are 2200 per year, even during WFH and COVID while the courts are moving very slowly. Any advice as to what I should look into for an exit? I can’t hit those billables while maintaining my sanity.

Insurance defense is a common practice area with high billables. That’s typical. I’m not sure I understand your Question about what to look for in an exit....

Thank you, Recruiter 1! Just messaged you.

I'm doing the same thing rn. I used to do construction and business litigation, plaintiff's side, and I liked that better. Still scratch the complex litigation itch but it wasn't so many hours. If you like civil litigation but just find med mal defense is too much, you may like something like that. Neither has really been "it" for me though so I'm still looking at something else.

I've been struggling since February to get my WFH setup in a way that works for me. I live in a 2br apartment with my partner so clearing the extra bedroom of distractions (we used it as a video and tabletop gaming room) was an easy choice. Unfortunately my productivity is much lower than it ever was at the office. I don't really get distracted at home, but I'm not getting as much done either. Anyone else still stuck like this? My company doesn't provide budget for home office either :/
