Solo At 75

I was about to post on  this article from the Washington Post on former federal judge and biglaw partner Stanley Sporkin, who’s just started his own law firm, but I saw that Susan Cartier Liebel beat me to the scoop. Though Sporkin expressed enthusiasm about his new venture, I wonder whether seventy five year old Sporkin was a victim of the mandatory retirement programs that I blogged about at Legal Blogwatch.  If that’s the case, it’s just further evidence that solo practice provides us with a soft landing or a second chance at the law, no matter what our backgrounds.
