Short term: Listen and do. Don’t be too aggressive “in the past at blah blah blah” Long term: know what you want out of your career and articulate clearly, find a mentor or two, always keep your word

I currently work as a personal injury lawyer at a small law firm, 5 years experience, graduated from T30 law school in 2015. Our subject area is pretty niche, and I am looking to branch out. Not big law, but a different subject area, and hopefully something with a better work life balance (have a small child with hopes for more). Open to leaving the law for a compliance/HR/other type position. Am I even marketable for something like that? Am I being unrealistic?
