Forty-one years of a life in the law, and then, one day, no more law. Just like that.

Many law students and attorneys never actually want to be attorneys. They spend hours exploring ways to leave the practice of law. Did I always want to be an attorney? Once I became an attorney, was I satisfied with the law firm life? Heavens, no!

With humor and self-deprecation, this book presents observations on my life before the law, my forty-one years in the law, and my life after I left. If you're a law student or an attorney; if you know an attorney, if you live with an attorney, if you are friends with an attorney, if you are curious about attorneys, and if you hire attorneys, you will find this book an entertaining read of how one attorney finally dreamed his way into his law afterlife.
