First, Jason Tolerico's latest Free Outline offer opens on May 1, 2014. Get 'em while you need 'em. Links to his site are just over there towards the top on the right side of my page --->.
Second, I am transitioning my practice from Judgment Recovery to Disabled Student Advocacy. I'm partnering up with another attorney who has a very busy practice representing students with learning disabilities. We step in when the school district fails to implement an appropriate learning program for the child. It's much more satisfying than trying to squeeze money from bad guys.
Third, the actual practice of law is much more enjoyable than trying to pass the bar exam. "What's that," you say? "You can't be serious!" Yes, folks, I'm serious. (;-)> Besides recovering money for people who have won their case, I'm handling a couple of civil matters. It's not the easiest thing I've ever done - I'm sure it would be easier if I wasn't doing it solo - but there are enough resources out there, including other friendly attorneys, to make it manageable. I'm not rich (yet!), but things are coming together.
And I still receiving the occasional email from people looking for advice on how to pass the CA bar exam. I always begin my reply by reminding them that, given my history, I might not be the best person to ask, but I am happy to relate to them the things that I did differently on the exam that I passed. I believe I've actually helped some people and that makes me feel good.
