Show Notes

"You might end up in a firm that doesn't suit you. You might end up in two in a row. But don't let that put you off. There are so many practice areas and they are so different." 

Being a lawyer is hard. Succeeding in law is even harder. 

In this episode of the Leading Lawyer Project, Simon Creek, one of Western Australia's best-known family lawyers, shares tips for lawyers who are doing it tough right now. 

Simon talks about how a "farmer's son" found his feet in the legal profession and built a firm with a strong culture and a commitment to purpose. 

In this episode, we cover:

  • The benefits of working in mid-sized firm;
  • Finding your niche in the law;
  • Time billing vs Fixed Fees;
  • Diversity and mental health in the legal profession;
  • Options for lawyers who don't find their passion in legal practice;
  • The realities of lawyer's salaries;
  • Leading a law firm vs being a lawyer.
