About this Book

Practicing law is one of the most flexible, lucrative, fulfilling, intellectually stimulating, and rewarding professions available to Americans today. Legal careers can and often do span more than fifty years, and taking a break from law practice is normal, worthwhile, and manageable. Returning to practice afterward is not an insurmountable brick wall, but an opportunity to strategically build and improve upon the last level of practice achieved.

In this handy guide, successful lawyer and author M. Diane Vogt shares her own personal tools, tips, and techniques to help you navigate your way back into the practice of law. In the author's own words, this book contains everything she wishes she could have known as her own legal career developed over twenty-eight years as she took breaks from legal work and returned successfully to a practice even better than the one she left.

You'll find out how to develop better strategies to achieve the quality of life, practice quality, and personal fulfillment issues that had become increasingly important to everyone. This book contains the best and most useful information and suggestions to help you pilot your own successful reentry into the field of law, and achieve your personal plan for growth.

With this book you'll find the practical advice you need to manage a critical phase of your career, rather than having your career dictate how you live your life. This book is perfect for men or women, new lawyer or seasoned veteran--anyone who looks toward moving back into the field of law.

Topics Include:

--Return of the Champions
--Reenter Your Ideal Practice
--Making the Most of the Lawyer Personality
--Getting Your Head in the Game
--Supreme Role Models
--Timing the Trip
--Navigating Reentry
--Navigating Reentry into Large Law Firms
--Work/Life Balance
--Roadblocks for Mothers
-- and much, much more
