Obtaining the services of a competent Michigan lawyer can be a lucrative proposition. Michigan, after all, is one of the most litigious states in the country. Every doctor, every teacher, every landlord – really, every property owner of any kind there – has to occasionally obtain the services of a Michigan lawyer.
All of this turns out to be very good news for those of us in the legal profession. You see, at a time when, because of the large number of new law school grads, lawyers across the country are finding themselves out of work, a Michigan lawyer like myself finds a higher level of job security. I am comfortable – really verging on wealth – and business shows know signs of slowing down.
Of course, this isn't just a matter of being in the right place at the right time. Sure, being a Michigan lawyer constitutes an ideal placement, but really in this business, its your record combined with your publicity that do it. I have been involved in a wide range of legal fields, and have met great success in all of them. I have clerked for circuit court judges, and ghost written some of the most important decisions of the decade. I have been involved, as an attorney, in divorce law, inheritance, personal injury, malpractice, and real estate. I even did a three year stint as a prosecutor back in my more idealistic days when I was fresh out of college. I'm not the only Michigan lawyer, and it is only because of my tireless work that I am among the most successful of them.
Of course, working at a good law firm will also do amazing things for your exposure. I work at one of the most respected law firms in the state, and have for ten years. I was never seen as a shoddy or second rate Michigan lawyer, but I certainly was rather green when I began to work at Levin and Schlitz. Green, at least, in comparison to my current level of success. But seeing where I worked, and being aware that the partners valued my legal skills and credentials enough to trust me to represent their law firm, There would be a respect which would come over those I came into professional contact with, be they judges, prosecutors, or even police investigators. To make it as a Michigan lawyer is something many can do, but to obtain true respect from your pears requires both talent and the right connections.
