Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
Every lawyer is expected to opine about the outcome of a case, but not to make psychic predictions.
Attorney Steven F. Macek, however, is not like every lawyer. He is not like any lawyer because he is also a psychic.
"I do it more than law," he told the Boston Globe. Macek has an interesting side gig for an attorney, but then how does any lawyer know what they're going to do in the future?
It's a practical reality that the legal profession is in flux, if not a funk. The economic downturn has turned out lawyers from jobs and scared students away from law school.
In the lurch, many would-be law students and used-to-be lawyers have found their future in other fields. Part-time work, like Macek's, is a real option.
Macek is not so different from other legal professionals who thought about becoming an attorney early in life. He knew it when he was a child.
"My mother went to a psychic when I was little who told her I'd be a lawyer," said Macek, 44. "And now I'm a psychic, too."
He is a certified "past lives reader," and offers psychic reading out of his office and through his webiste: www.steventhemedium.com.
A JD is good for more than juris doctoring. Like the undergraduate education before it, a legal education is about learning a discipline.
Erstwhile esquires have graduated to the highest levels of politics, education, science, the arts and many diverse fields. It's not just the famous ones, like Barack Obama, Geraldo Rivera, Edwin Hubble or Julio Iglesias.
Victoria Lai became an ice cream maker; Dave DeFazio started a whiskey business; Drew Shoals became a rock star. For these lawyers, pursuing their dream was really just reaching for the future.
Macek, of course, knew that about himself from the beginning.
