I am switching gears from immigration law, to criminal law in the coming month. This is coming after years with a small firm. No general complaints on where I am at, I just feel I have peaked here in terms of what I can do and be compensated.

The new firm has a better compensation structure and room to grow.

The point of my post is, has anyone switched fields like this? I am excited but also a little nervous the change of pace will be overwhelming at first.
