type of law question

Postby shane0515 » Mon Apr 23, 2012 10:22 am

Hello,

I'm wondering in your opinion what type of law allows for me to still have a life when I come home from work? I want to be able to practice a type of law the makes decent money but also allows me to spend time with my children and wife when I get home. I want to work to live not live to work.

What type of law pays decent money, $50,000-80,000 but would allow me to still have a life when I come home from work?

Thank you

Immigration law, especially if you do employment-based (as opposed to / addition to family-based and removal defense, which tend to be lower-paying for obvious reasons).

that sounds like an interesting option. Why do you say immigration law? What makes it not as grueling as the other legal fields?
