Default Legal Jobs In Seattle

Yeah, I know this is a pilot's board, but many of you have asked me about going to law school as an alternative. Like aviation, we have our ups and downs, so it's still buyer beware. One big difference is that a lawyer can hang up his own shingle and be his own boss. No more phone calls from scheduling. And no more getting paid $20 an hour to fly a complex machine. Many of my friends in private practice routinely charge $350 an hour. Just like a FedEx captain!!
