Private Estate and Family Law is less stressful than public criminal law

I worked for an attorney for a year during my last year of high school. It started as a simple internship but I was offered a paid position to learn from this man and do basic filing and clerical work. I learned a lot from this man, but it’s sad that his life was cut short when he ran into hot water with a failed real estate deal. One of his friends went after him and he took his own life in his garage one day while I was busy in my second year of college. I had no idea how bad things were back then, but he told me for a while that if I ever wanted to do law, I should focus on civil litigation, especially estate and family law. He said there was better money for less stress if I pursued a law career within that domain compared to his own path. There are a lot of options these days if you pursue a law career; some people forgo becoming lawyers at all and go into politics or lobbying. Others opt to become teachers or reporters if they wish to avoid jobs as an attorney specifically. Back in the days when I worked for the attorney in high school, he never directly discouraged me from going to law school to get a degree, but he told me that I didn’t need to focus solely on being a lawyer with a Bar Association certification and license. I have a close friend who works in private estate and family law and he makes quality money without making himself crazy with too much stress and anxiety on a day by day basis.
