Short term, find a reputable shop where you will be able to learn the business of plaintiff’s work as well as the substance of it. Long-term, go solo and make real money

Most important thing in Plaintiff work is to have a well-developed infrastructure of support staff. You need people who can shield you from the clients’ calls to complain about everything from their pain, medical care, how long the process is taking, so you can focus on actual lawyering. If you have to talk to them, it will drain your entire day and you won’t be able to actually work on their case. Of course, they won’t see it that way.

I did plaintiffs and moved to defense, plaintiffs is way less professional in there you’re dealing with getting the plaintiff to show up for doctors appointments, getting them transportation,etc. a lot of hand holding. Vs defense where you’re working with an Insurance company. Pro is no billing more so overall case settlement but that is not always in your control and is a gamble at times

Product Management - I am somewhat interested in trying to move into product management. I have led internal analytics product development at a prior firm, and have led clients through developing/improving “products” for their teams to use however I have not led “consumer facing” products and my experiences have not been as “formal” as many PM roles ask for. I work in healthcare and would want to stay there. I’m wondering if others have any thoughts on these transitions.
