Welcome to my website Quitting Law .com. My name is Mark Ford, a member of the Law Society in the United Kingdom and former Magistrates Court lawyer and qualified Solicitor.

 A brief history.

I have always held the view that earn while you learn is the best way to achieve want you want. So as a young lad I did exactly that. After achieving my 'O' levels, I left school and found employment working in the law offices of the Magistrates Courts. I then went on to obtain my 'A' levels in law and successfully passed the Law Society exams and was admitted to the bar as a Solicitor. Working for Her Majesty's government exposed me to many different aspects of the law from criminal law, family law and other areas. However I found my niche in licencing law, which was perhaps a throw back to my youth, working with my father in the social club scene.

As a Solicitor working for the government I was privileged, to work regular 9 to 5 hours. The drawback however is that working for the government your salary is not the best in the world. However one can say that my position was relatively secure. The blow fell for me, when the government started changing the licencing laws and then they were devolved away from the Magistrates Courts to Local Authority level. This was basically the death knell to my career as suddenly I was out of a job. So then I became a 'Solicitor without portfolio', the Magistrates Courts were very nice and since I was working for the government they looked to keep me employed. So in their wisdom, I was then pushed into an office and effectively became an over qualified clerk and was far removed from the actual practice of law. I very quickly became bored and stuck in a rut, which made me very unhappy. So it was decision time! Stay where I was or find an alternative to law. The bottom line, I did not want to stay stuck in a career that was going nowhere and find myself stagnant and redundant.

The purpose of Quitting law.com

As lawyers we all live in the 'worst case scenario' world and that transfers into our everyday lives as well, so we become pessimists by nature. This pessimism is our biggest downfall as we often realise we are stuck and cannot find our way out of the doldrums. Statistically lawyers rank in the top figures for divorce, depression, suicide and a whole handful of nasty problems associated with our career. I have many friends and colleagues who are highly dissatisfied with being in the law and feel stuck in their existing career and stay where they are and slog out their days, praying for retirement to set themselves free.

My aim is to show you here, that it is never too late to change. In all honesty I broke away from the law at the tender age of 46. Yes I have had to go through a huge learning curve but after 10 years of success I want to share with you the problems associated with working in the law and offer viable solutions. I have become an entrepreneurial lawyer and have two businesses that do well, a property portfolio and an internet marketing business. The internet has allowed me to create a global business.

After having bumped my head a few times in building my business. There is nothing that gives me greater pleasure than to show the opportunities that have worked and are still working for me, as well as, to create a relationship with you and be able to mentor you in your endeavours to change your life and reach the dreams you desire.

If quitting law is a serious consideration or you want out now! Then you are in the right place. nothing gives me greater satisfaction than being able to help you and see you succeed.

Please feel free to to make an appointment with me via SKYPE and we can meet and discuss options open to you. I offer a free 30 minute consultation under Home Business Lifestyle Coaching.

Welcome to my website, wishing you every success in your decision to quit law and your future endeavours.
