The other day my man John Skiba posted an article on Facebook that discussed the idea that the legal profession is dying.
I read the article (you can read it here), thought it was a little lacking on analysis, so I thought I’d chime in.
I’m not going to give you everything here, because it’s all in the podcast episode, but I’ll let you dine on a couple of nuggets.
1. The legal profession is and will dying in some ways.
2. Personal injury, DUI defense, and traffic ticket lawyers should be wary for one specific reason.
3. Everyone else (family law, estate planning, bankruptcy, business, etc.) should be wary for a different specific reason.
4. No matter your practice area, level of experience, or anything else, if you keep one thing in mind you will survive this.
5. If you have several very specific traits you don’t have to worry about anything.
If you want the whole ball of wax, you have to listen to the show!
