There are a handful guys who settle multiple seven and eight figure cases every year. There are also a few ultra high volume/low quality shops that just crush me by sheer volume (for example Jacob Emrani, The Barnes Firm, and Burg and Brock have literally thousands active cases each). They dwarf my income. But definitely I'm in the top .1% of plaintiff's lawyers based on what I net.

what defines a "low quality" shop? do they not get maximum $$ out of each case because they have so much volume and just dont give a fuck? what % of value are they losing on each case?

how big is your staff?

what's your life goal?

I mean they have so many files they don't really work them up. They just have them treat with doctors and hope some of them get MRIs, injections, or surgery. Most of their files end up being chiropractic only and settling < 8K. My files on the other hand are all worked up like crazy and I generally get tens of thousands of dollars on the average case.

I have 2 full time paralegals now, but I had only 1 until a few months ago.

My life goal is to retire with enough passive income to not worry about money and spend time with my family. My family is by far the most important thing in the world to me. I don't really care about money that much. I should be able to hit total financial independence around 38-40 (which would be like 8-10 mil). At that point I'll probably have someone run my firm and collect passive income from that.

Step dad is a high end divorce lawyer. He charges 650/hr and his office is in Beverly Hills. He handles main celebs and rich people. He graduated first in his law school from a T50 school and then opened his own practice 40 years ago. Fun fact: his law partner is his ex-wife (he's been married four times). My mom has been with him 15 years and they seem to be good to go until they die.

Other than that, my uncle is a shady immigration lawyer (who is currently suspended), and one of my cousins is a trial attorney for CalTrans. That's pretty much it.

Actually, no he didn't help at all. He was always kind of douche until I become really successful. Now he respects me a lot. He sends me referrals when he gets them, but that isn't too often.

My real dad is a radiologist, but I haven't spoke to him since law school. My parents divorced when I was 11 and I never really had a great relationship with him.

Lol at actual legal work. I don't file motions ever, my paralegal answers discovery, most of my depositions are covered by contract attorneys, and I farm out all my big trials to heavy hitter trial attorneys.

85% of cases settle prelitigation. Plus most of the job in PI is just having good people skills, working up the case (basically getting the right treatment) and negotiating. I'm really good at that and LOVE doing mediations and negotiating settlements.

JFC that's amazing. I just closed the books on 2017 and made a total of $215k in profit as a solo for the entire year. Sounds like you make that in an average month.

I didn't average 215K a month last year because my net profits were 1.325 mil. But I'm hoping to net 2 mil this year if some of my bigger cases settle. I have a brain damage case that I should make at least 2 million off alone, but that probably won't settle until 2019 because it just got filed and those cases take a LONG time to settle because of their size.
