Being a Lawyer - The Battle of Experience

Many careers believe that the older you get in your career, the more experience you will have and the more valuable you will become to your industry. This concept doesn’t ring as true as in the field of jurisprudence, where your career is a constant struggle to know everything that has already been created, while improving yourself to master what is being changed each and every day in the law of the United States. With this challenge comes the true meat of becoming a lawyer: once you get in, how do you stay afloat?

With the number of lawyers constantly rising all over the country, the competition is becoming a game of effectiveness more than location. In the past, lawyers were among the most intelligent minds in the country, and the choice of lawyer was more or less based on which lawyer was the closest to the client. However, with the flood of lawyers that have entered into the industry, the game is now decided by the quality of the lawyers, and that is usually chosen by the experience that they have in their practice.

Douglas MacNeille, a South Carolina lawyer that has been in practice for over 35 years, credits his statewide reputation and his expertise in his practices to the amount of time that he has been a lawyer. While there are masterminds of law that occasionally sprout about, the most prominent way to increase your clientele and create a great reputation as a lawyer is by gaining experience with clients and lasting the test of time as more lawyers fail, and you stay alive.
