Hasn't she been a professor for 30ish years? And was the countries foremost bankruptcy expert who consulted on incredibly complex cases? Seems like not that much when you take into account the length of time and how much she would have made as a biglaw partner doing bankruptcy work.

Almost all of it is held in appreciated retirement accounts and real estate. Even if not at her amounts, that's typical for most Americans with any semblance of net worth. But she also did consulting, amicus briefing, and published a number of books, so she'd have earned quite a bit from fees and book deals.

This may be just a naive/dumb question, but how do you relax when you’ve got a really stressful file?

How much do you rely on your para?
