Errr me. I just tendered my resignation not too long ago and got another job offer. In the meantime I still have so many files to clear. I know itís tough to find something in the present economy but there are still plenty of jobs out there that pays decently.

Not the OP but I am with one of the big four tier one corp department and I am thinking of switching to family law. I know the pay is not as good but pay is really not my concern. My priority is to find work which gives me better satisfaction. I foresee myself having more fulfilment in doing family cases and having the personal touch with clients, knowing that my work will help them significantly in their personal lives.

Can a helpful soul give some guidance or sneak peak of how the family law practice is like? Will I get a better sense of fulfilment than being in the corporate field?

Others' MMV but I did fam law and it was really not as meaningful as what I had envisaged. Exchanging snarky letters with opposing counsel detailing unglamorous details of your client's marriage because your client's ex-husband missed one payment of the kids' school fees was not my idea of meaningful.

Congrats! That was me 2 months-ish ago.. resigned from big 4 tier 1 disputes team and got another offer which thankfully offers the same pay. Yes there are still jobs out there, leaving your current job really isn't the end of the world.
