Hate being a lawyer? I get it.
I'm Sarah Cottrell, and I'm on a mission to help as many unhappy lawyers as possible know that they are not alone and figure out what they really want to be doing. I've seen too many unhappy lawyers stay stuck in jobs they hate for literally years because leaving seems impossible and they don't even know where to start.
I left the law in the summer of 2018 after practicing for 10 years and paying off over $400k in debt, mostly law school loans. (My husband also is a lawyer, so we had double the law school debt.)
On The Former Lawyer Podcast, each week you can hear inspiring stories from my guests about how they left the law behind to find careers and lives that they love.
