Hi, Dejanna. The answer to your question depends on the type of lawyer. I am a corporate lawyer at a Fortune 500 company. I work a typical work week (M-F) with regular hours. I go into the office, or work remote, just like all the other employees. I attend meetings to discuss various issues that arise and work on lots and lots of contracts.
I originally had planned on law enforcement as a career. So yes, I sometimes do wish I could do something else. However, my current job is a great fit. My hours are good, my pay is good, and I get to work on challenging items.
