I've never made over 6 figures before and it's fun to dream about how my future will look. I hope I make all the right choices and exponentially increase my net worth. I hope I made the right choice by accepting this offer and I hope that I like this job (or that it is at least tolerable). It is definitely going to be more work. I have close to 30 cases. One of the other attorney told me that he had 50 at one point and he was struggling to keep up. They have added several new attorneys and the workload is okay for now.
I do have a client that was interested in continuing to work with me and hopefully I will get some work from him. If I do get a case from him I will receive an origination fee of upwards of 5% of every invoice paid. If anyone else in the firm gets a case that falls under the umbrella of that client, I will get the origination fees from those as well. That is so cool to me. I accidently brought in a client at my old firm, an insurance adjuster who knew me told her friend at another insurance company to use me and we ended up with those cases. I did not receive any fees for those cases.
This is truly a whole new world!
