I am turning 57, and as a trial lawyer I am trying far fewer cases, but really can’t imagine not practicing law or giving up my office. I am blessed to have invested early and wisely, and don’t have to worry at all about keeping the lights on, but have always enjoyed what I do and plan on continuing to do it till at least my mid 60s. I do take far more vacations where I used to take none, and plenty of long weekends. As long as I can do that, I’m happy. I have been self-employed for almost 30 years, so that probably contributes to my ability to be happy while continuing to work.
