It costs to be the boss.
Yes, if I was in a BigLaw environment, I definitely would do it since you are dealing with people on a mass scale. I am saying if you're an entrepreneur like most Shitlaw or MidLaw(call it what you will) attorneys are. I personally know some (I don't know if it will be referred to as MidLaw or Shitlaw, etc) attorneys who have 2-5m+ profit yearly.
This will be me if I don't work BigLaw. I have done it in a different business and doing it as an attorney would be much more fun. Your average shitlaw lawyer is an entrepreneur; he is shooting commercials, making sure he looks good on billboards, and pumping out as many advertisements as he can, costly ones at that. In addition, there isn't a single Romanian attorney in Las Vegas, NV. My mother is on the board of directors of a Romanian church thus my name can get around. I don't envision even staying in Las Vegas but worst case scenario, I would stay here & prosper.
All I have to do is add immigration to my line of work if i'm solo and I can get anywhere from 1,000 - 5,000 for any giving client and that is for easy work paralegals can do. I have experience with this from my own situation. It needs to be done. Immigration law can be a gold mine, people become permanent residents/citizens every day and it is real easy work that requires almost no going to court.
This is just a side practice, you will only see the client once or twice at most. It's enough to where you can add it to your area of expertise without it interfering with other work you may have because most individual immigration cases entail work that is an easy task; such as simply filing a few things, etc.
You've mentioned earlier about dumb attorneys. Vegas is full of them. I would love to destroy these attorneys in court. I also have ties in the DA's office and further ones I will not get into. Actually I will, if someone close to my family went to school with a judge (Vegas is small) would it be unethical for me to clerk with such judge, or ask for her help in regard to clerking? I am not saying I would do this because doing so means I would have to go to LS in my state which I highly do not want to do. Just a thought. If I go to school in CA I would clerk there if I wanted to clerk but say if I didn't find any clerkships in CA & wanted to clerk in my state for some reason (esp. in liaison with the ties I have in the DA's office). Is this a good connection to rely on or absolutely not?
