Well done, Nicole. Success is a concept I've only come to terms with as of late even though I've been practicing for over 15 years.

When I grew up, lawyers made a lot of money. From what the elder statesmen tell me, there were less lawyers, less rules and the practice was more congenial. As you correctly pointed out, times change. These days, the money is on Wall Street and many law practices - big and small - are starving or folding. While I still work to achieve mogul status, I've learned to adjust my understanding of success by not discounting my non-monetary achievements. Using creativity to win cases, being invited to write for the New York State Bar Association and figuring out how to score bigger and higher profile clients are successes I have come to relish.

While the practice of law may not be as lucrative as it once was, there is still plenty of success to go around.
