Thinking about a career change from insurance defense to district attorney. It will be a SIGNIFICANT decrease in income for the first few yrs, but I can't think of any other "con." I don't like what I'm doing & think I'd like being a prosecutor. Pros for me include more trial experience/client contact, less hours & more time for a future family, no billing, no travel, loan forgiveness, and generally feeling like I'm actually helping people. Has anyone done this? Thoughts?

Anyone following this gabby petito case?

The entire situation is a true mirror of how flawed our law enforcement system is to deal with crisis situations or DV disturbances.
