I can see "gee-whiz" as a real edge in water law. "Patent law?" You averse to working with Civil Engineering and construction firms? "New improved structural anchors/footings," that kind of thing? Well casing techniques. Architectural designs, methods for retrofitting of unreinforced masonry. The "American Dream" is to sue someone and retire, and there have to be plenty of opportunities regarding "due diligence" and acts of "Geophysics."

Thanks and yes, I meant "patent lawyer".

Mine safety equipment (regarding actual material handling and stabilization problems) --- actually you might have more opportunities than you'll know how to handle.

The second thread in this form is "Anyone considering a career as a patent attorney?" It's worth reading.
