First Time Solo Practitioner at 75

Here's a great article in the Washington Post regarding a first time solo at the other end of the spectrum. Having practiced more than 50 years with a very distinguished professional history, Stan Sporkin is finally striking out on his own.

"He's hung out his own shingle as a lawyer and consultant, signing on as a part-time ombudsman for troubled petroleum giant BP and filling out his time by working as an arbitrator and mediator at Gavel Consulting Group. He says his favorite part of the job involves advising companies on how to keep in line with securities laws.

"What I enjoy is being able to consult with people," he said. "We've become such cookie cutters that we've lost common sense."

While Sporkin's experience is vast, unique and impressive, I find it inspirational he wants to keep his own counsel and go solo capitalizing on his reputation but getting back to dealing one-on-one with clients, again.
