Why Are Lawyers So Expensive?

A few nights ago, I suddenly woke up from a deep sleep at 3 a.m., and my mind instantly recalled some obscure procedural issue that I had overlooked on a case that was set for Bankruptcy Court at 9 a.m. that day.

This, law students, is what you have to look forward to.

Being a lawyer isn’t one of those “Hey, my shift ended at 5 p.m., so you need to call __________ to deal with that problem.”

In many cases, I take on a care and concern over my clients’ problems that it greater than my own clients’ cares and concerns over their problems.

I’ve wasted concerts, parties, movies, and spent countless hours of family time being physically present, but, on some level, worrying about my clients’ problems.

All that having been said, that’s Why Lawyers are So Expensive.

Side note, for the potential clients out there; don’t hire a lawyer unless they care this much.
