It’s never too late change directions. Hell, I had a whole other 8+year career in real estate before going to law school. There is always hope, and even if it means a little reset, if you made it to where you are today in law, then you have transferable analytical skills. Take a step back from the profession even if it’s getting this bad.

Wow. I’m feeling a bit surreal. There was a home going for $450k and went down and then I negotiated off another $40k. Now I’m getting the home for about $350k with a 5.99 rate (30 year fixed).

It’s in the exact area I wanted to live in too (prime location) and all the homes around are well over $400k!

How many billable hours per week is considered at capacity? I’m getting pushback on boundaries I’m setting about additional matters and marketing work from my firm when I’ve been billing 60-75 hours per week for the last 6 weeks, and I’m still behind on my work. I feel like it’s reasonable to not kill myself further to fit in more/turn things around faster at this point, but am I being unreasonable? I expect my workload to remain at this level through the end of the year at least.
