Give the guy his props if he can still get it done. He was here first, he's got a right to stick around and do it as long as he likes. That's going to be me in about 71 years, only I'll be a multimillionaire, I'll look better and my wife will be a 29 y/o hottie. :wink:

Honestly some of the retired partners at my firm have no idea what is going on around them and they still come in everyday. It's actually really sad.

I think its pretty depressing. Who here wants to be in private practice for the love of the work? I'm going to say its not too many. Problem is, when its all you've been doing 60+ hours a week for 20 (or 70) years, you don't know what else to do with yourself. You've sold away your entire life so much that you're willing to give away the rest because you have nothing else.
