The Former Lawyer Podcast

Aug 19, 2019

On today’s show, Sarah interviews Maria Phillis, former lawyer turned doctor (ob/gyn, to be specific). 

In this interview, Maria shares:

  • Why getting laid off during the big crash of '08/'09 wasn’t a terrible thing in retrospect;
  • Why loving trial work wasn’t enough to keep her in the law; 
  • How she challenged herself to prove that she was truly interested in med school while still working as a lawyer;
  • Why she doesn’t regret taking the path that she took (even though it meant even more student loans);
  • Why she thinks it’s so hard for lawyers particularly to allow themselves to think about making a career change; and
  • Why brutal honesty about what you actually want is essential if you’re thinking about leaving the law.
