"Sometimes attorneys are desperate to find a way out of the legal profession."

"Sometimes that desperation will lead them down a strange road to an entirely new career — and not just a new career, but a new way of life."

ADDED: From the comments at the link: "That Boy George, come-hither look seals the deal."

Hot she is,

intelligent certainly.

Wise?, the jury is still out...

AllieOop said...

Kind of reminds me of that film, with Ellen Burstyn, Resurrection. Instead of simply healing people, she resurrects erections.

Sexual healing, so to speak.

Palladian said...

She's acting like a whore and lying to people for lots of money... how is that a "new way of life" for a lawyer?

traditionalguy said...

She says to change you sub-conscious emotional state. Then you will catch the women in no time at all. OK, so what if you haven't decided that you want to catch a women you don't yet know.?

How do you get them to leave after the sex is over...oops we are back ato seriously hurting the women who are not trained whores. Maybe if I become a Libertarian then can I do that easier.

Erika Frick's head shot in the link makes her look like a Bond girl, but the head shot on her Web site, Erika Awakening, makes her look like she sells soaps at Whole Foods. Quite a contrast.

Chef Mojo said...

I've known 14 chefs who are law school grads. 10 of them actually practiced law.

All of them preferred being chefs.

traditionalguy said...

Wait a darn minute. You are working a theme like Drudge's tea leaves do.

The prior post headlines St Bernard's prayer, "Please let me catch her. Please let me catch her."

Then their is the famous foxhole athiest's conversion prayer adjusted for pick ups in bars, " If you let me nail her, I promise that I will serve You forever." But that might not be answered unless it is a special Dionysios Feast Day in heaven.

I was pre-law in college, did quite well on the LSAT, but every lawyer I knew or heard about back then hated their job.

My way away from the legal profession was to go to seminary. A lot less lucrative of a choice.

But, there are other rewards, both in the present and in the extended future.

bagoh20 said...

When I think of all the makeup that college loan could have bought. Dammit!

When I was young, I knew people in the high end escort business in Beverly Hills. Many of the working girls were highly educated, including lawyers. They all had well planned out futures that did not involve using their degrees much. Looking good, just pays better...for a while, and getting rich young and quick is hard to beat.

traditionalguy said...

Palladian... very funny Palladian. Actually liscensed attorneys are new to the whore business because Legal Ethics forbid they divulge confidential pillow talk confessions. It's almost as good as a Catholic Priests confessions priviledge.

She has moved into the P T Barnum territory, where there is a new socially untrained man born every second. For which I blame their mothers.

If her Profession is actually a Life Coach, then hot sex with the pick up babes is a small area of her skills curriculum.

Titus said...

I work in HR as a OD Consultant for start ups.

I am all about reorganization. reengineering, restructuring, downsizing, ramping up, organizational design, performance management, salary planning and commission programs, succession planning, employee development and "total rewards".

Total BS, but it pays big money.

The most important criteria is be hot and dress fab and show up-really that is life.

tits.

AllieOop said...

I guess I don't understand going through law school, taking the bar exam, then dropping it for some foolishness like this. Why couldn't she continue as an attorney and moonlight or have this service as a avocation.

If my daughter dropped her career as an attorney after me helping her out financially during those years, she would get the Jewish mother guilt trip big time.

I suspect she may have sustained brain damage during her near death experience.

bagoh20 said...

Allie, I would guess that this pays better, is more fun, and she has the freedom to decide her own level of success; and to make her own hours and working conditions. I noticed that your pic is turning back to the left and that's probably why you don't appreciate the freedom component. Beside she probably gets lots of sex, but that's more bipartisan.

edutcher said...

She's a looker, 'tis true, but it's amusing a law blog would get so huffy over a woman who gave up a life of ruining people's lives for money in exchange for making others' lives more fun.

ddh said...

Erika Frick's head shot in the link makes her look like a Bond girl, but the head shot on her Web site, Erika Awakening, makes her look like she sells soaps at Whole Foods.

As The Blonde is wont to say, some people's taste is all in their mouth.

That shot on her website has an elegance that hasn't been seen much in the last 60 years.

Titus said...

I love laying off old people who have become complacent and have a false sense of security and stability and who are total dead weight to an organization.

And then a month or two later reposting their "position" which much different requirements and specs and hiring some young buck at 1/4 of the pay.

It is a great cost savings for an organization and a win win.

I always say to the poor saps, "it's only business, take care, the car is downstairs, you don't need to go back to your office, everything has been packed for you, take care, thanks...and good luck".

tits.

AllieOop said...

More fun?! What could be more fun than being an attorney?! ( I jest)

I'm spinning as fast as I can, but I'm gettin' a bit dizzy. That test today proved I must be a lefty at heart, but hey, I was 51% Libertarian!

yashu said...

Interesting. Stories like these-- of a sudden dramatic life metamorphosis, personality metamorphosis-- have a big mystery at their center. It's an archetypal narrative of metanoia-- conversion-- but in this case what she's converted to is baffling, and the pivot point is totally opaque.

One remote possibility (especially given the unspecified "near-death experience") is that she suffered some kind of brain injury causing personality change. One possible result of brain injury is loss of inhibitions, e.g. sexual inhibitions, prompting a dramatic change in sexual behavior.

yashu said...

Just noticed Allie had the same idea about brain damage. Agreed Allie, that's the first thing that occurred to me.

edutcher said...

Somebody (maybe Ann) tell Titus it will happen to him some day.

traditionalguy said...

Allie...I always thought you were right handed. But, whatever. I bet you would make a great life coach for young ladies and young men. Their parents could hire you and you could do a mother's training job on them after they get out of college and need some social skills training.

I know a fine lady who does that at age 65.

AllieOop said...

Frontal lobes, Yashu.

AllieOop said...

I don't know Tradguy, I might mess them up big time, turn them into lefties inadvertently.

ndspinelli said...

Titus must be a stone cold corporate hatchet man[girly].

YoungHegelian said...

At my gym, they post the photos and bios of the gym instructors on the back wall.

Out of ten of them, three of them have law degrees. One of them from Stamford.

I know in DC, some of the parking lot attendants have law degrees. The town is rife with lawyers & shrinks, but when I saw the gym wall I thought "Jeez, overqualified much?"

By the way, of the 10, only one didn't have at least a bachelors.

Titus
Your scenario is not unlike the one Ericka will face in a year or so when her looks go.

virgil xenophon said...

Her "look" on her web site would do Mortica proud. Would sure give Morticia a run for her money. Looks like a typical Southern European/Balkan-area ethnic type, tho YMMV.

Paddy O said...

I have a friend who got her JD from UCLA, then passed the bar, then went to seminary for her MA, and now is finishing up her PhD in early Christian studies, getting a full fellowship at one of the most prestigious places to study that topic. One of the smartest people I know, both academically and in choosing to basically start over again in her higher education and pursue what she loved to study.

Freeman Hunt said...

Is it possible to be a female pickup artist?

Eric said...

All of them preferred being chefs.

Law firms have gotten quite comfortable with dangling the possibility of making partner out and then working the associates to death.

If you actually stood a reasonable chance of making partner it might be worth it, but unless something in you was broken you'd still hate it.

Eric said...

Is it possible to be a female pickup artist?

Certainly, though shooting fish in a barrel would be easier. I think she's supposed to be coaching men.

Michael K said...

My daughter is a lawyer, passed the Washington and California bar, and is an FBI agent. She runs recruiting in southern California and I'll bet she has plenty of applicants. The IT guy from the firm I worked for a few years ago applied and went to Quantico. I doubt they are looking fro many new agents now.

kentuckyliz said...

It sounds like her Near Death Experience was drowning in semen.

kentuckyliz said...

In my little Appalachian town, the downtown area is all lawyer's offices and a flophouse hotel for the cheap hookers.

Hoors and lawyers.

In Appalachia speak, those two words rhyme.

Sex and sexuality.

The mortals' faux salvation.

Nothing new here.
