David Lat of Above the Law has just posted a thread on careers in family law firms. The post quotes Dahlia Lithwick, Slate’s Supreme Court correspondent, as saying that her time in family law practice “bickering over the pots and pans” made other career options look more appealing. The post contained some more positive reflections on being a family law practitioner, but, overall, it was probably not family law's best moment. In your experiences, does the practice of family law deserve the more negative aspects of its reputation?
***This post has been corrected to reflect that in the Above the Law post, family law was not compared to other fields of law specifically, but to other career choices generally.
