A successful lawyer has its own struggles. Here are the struggles every wannabe lawyers and every lawyer encounter:
You are quite sure that 90% of the legal rules have exceptions. This can make you wonder whether the whole concept was based on exceptions or theories.
It is hard to keep up with the clients. Some clients expect a lot from you, as a result, they have a wildly unrealistic expectation.
Lawyers consult and assess the client’s question, the client who only wants a quick answer. Legal advice is not that quick to comprehend and analyze the client’s situation.
You may win the case but your heart is still not happy. Regardless of the outcome, the litigation takes a negative toll on the people involved.
Lawyers never stop competing. Lawyers are extremely defensive and will do everything to gain the case.
Basic knowledge of business is expected from you.
In a nutshell, being a lawyer has also its own ups and downs. To not feel the struggle, live a balanced life. Be prepared to study more! One advantage is, you can speak and understand another language.
