Success Story: How I Left the Law During the Pandemic

If money weren't an issue, what would be stopping you?

Like a lot of people, I went to law school because it was the thing to do.  

The programs are so well organized and the community is so incredible that  I'm simply thankful that LLB gave me my life back!

I was anxious about leaving the security of the law behind, but now I earn even more money than I did as a lawyer. My "lawyer" skills have been a perfect fit for these "non-law' jobs - I've been promoted three times and my career growth upside seems limitless... On top of that, I am a much happier, calmer and motivated person. I even look forward to work on Mondays!

I knew within the first month of law school that law wasn't for me.  By following the Modules step by step, I was able to quickly learn and build on Casey’s leave the law concepts with minimal questions or frustration.

Meet the Leave Law Behind Team

Casey Berman

Founder, Leave the Law Coach

I like to joke that I went to law school for the simple reason that I was a Jewish kid who didn't like blood ... so I decided to attend law school, and not medical school! That's about as critically as I thought about becoming a lawyer! I left the law in 2004 after focusing on software licensing, mainly because I found the practice of law to be very reactive and always about putting out fires. I also never considered myself that good of a lawyer. Since then, from my home base in San Francisco, I've been on a mission to help other unhappy, unfulfilled attorneys create their own alternative, dream careers out of the law like I have.

Leave the Law Coach

I practiced law for over 20 years in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, across the areas of commercial real estate closings, real estate litigation, business law and family law to name a few. I built a very successful law practice, but realized I liked the business of building a firm more than practicing law. I also found the practice of law to be so overwhelming and stressful, that it began to impair my health - I was rushed to the hospital three times for stress-related incidents! So I left the law and have been writing and speaking ever since on life purpose, career change and entrepreneurship from my horse ranch near Asheville.
