    being one of the worst spellers and typist to ever pass the bar, I
    would never dream of sitting in judgment on someone else. Andrew:
    yes, PDs don't make much money but it is steady income with benefits
    to get you on your feet and gain experience. do a few years of it
    to learn the ropes and become really good at it, make a name for
    yourself, then you can command your own price. private defense
    attorneys can make a very good living if you are in the right area
    (not an severely economically depressed or rural one) DUI defense
    seems to be pretty lucrative in my state since some very big names
    (like a supreme court justice) seem to getted nabbed once in
    awhile. Do the PD to learn and get good at it on a smaller but
    consistent salary.
