In this book, I spell out the top 10 telltale signs that it’s time for you to quit Biglaw once and for all. And since Biglaw lawyers are notoriously busy, this book is broken down into 10 easily digestible chapters, each of which should take just 6 minutes to read (which all Biglaw lawyers know equates to 0.1 of an hour, or one billable increment!).

I’ve written about quitting Biglaw many times before (see here, here and here!), but I wanted to put together something that was accessible for anyone short on time and looking for the real answer to: should I stay or should I go?

Each chapter highlights a specific sign that it’s time to leave Biglaw. After reading this book, you’ll be able to figure out once and for all if the universe is screaming at you that it’s time for a career pivot, or if perhaps Biglaw is the right place for you.

P.S. – Realizing It’s Time to Leave Is Just the First Step. Then What?

I recognize that realizing it’s time to leave Biglaw, while a huge first step, is just that – a first step. Realizing it’s time to leave and actually leaving are two very different things. That’s why I’m hard at work on two follow-up books that will go through the how: how do you actually leave Biglaw once you realize it’s no longer the right place for you?

It might sound easy – you just leave! But most Biglaw lawyers know it’s not that simple. Hopefully, these guides will help make your journey out of Biglaw easier than it was for me and for others who struggled with the decision and the leaving process for way too long.
