Not unlike this guy, "The man asked the woman what she was eating, but became sexually aroused and decided to take upskirt photos of her." Who becomes sexually aroused while asking about food??

No point to do a job with immense stress that it makes you do the wrong things.
According to psychology (btw psychology is a good area for Ex lawyers to branch into), people vent their stress in different ways.
Smoking, etc. itís all part of compulsiveness

Hi! Does anyone have first-hand experience working with the lawyers on demand model? Would like to hear from seniors who have taken this route. Thanks!

If you had entered the US market in March 2020, and hold till today, youíd have earned more than the lawyers on furlough in the magic circle and the white shoe.

Well he had perfectly legal avenues - he could have quit his job, like many do, without using stress as an excuse. He could have gone to a smaller firm. He could have done other forms of legal work. Stress is not an excuse for upskirting someone.

Neither is depression - litigation is depressing, you don't see daylight when you have trial or discovery. Any normal lawyer will feel the pressure. There's the added pressure on you to win, along with time pressures and client pressures. If he needed an out, he should have quit

That being said it's hard in that he might be too caught up in the cycle to realise it
