I'm a third year attorney trying to get out of this ridiculously overcrowded field where the clients all are broke.
I do have a real estate license I use infrequently for at least awhile. (anticipate selling my place for one).
I interviewed with John Hanc*** and they said no real estate license.
I was a stock trader with a 7 and 63 before law school. Finance was my first real love so to speak but got burned out.
Are there any decent firms preferably with an insurance focus that'd let me keep the real estate license?

Thanks in advance.

Why don't you go work in compliance somewhere?  I hear they like attorneys.

Or you could strike out on your own as an RIA.  You'd be an estate planning attorney and a financial advisor all rolled up into one. 

One good niche that is NOT overcrowded is Special Needs Trusts.  There are only a handful of attorneys across the nation that specialize in them.  And they usually try to the financial part of it, not very well.

Incidentally I interviewed at northwest mutual. They seemed good. I also enrolled in casino dealer school as a backup. the high limit room seems like it would be a good place to prospect for clients.

Mass Mutual will.

No issues in the RIA world.  I support several estate planning attorneys who recently formed an RIA to expand their service offerings to their clients.  Some of these same attorneys also maintain a real estate license too. 


Whether you can have this model in the Broker-Dealer world will depend if their 'house rules' allow it.  I would ask any firm you are interviewing to receive a document outlining all of their house rules.  Since your essentially running a business -- you need to know all of the rules in advance so you can properly structure yourself (and not be surprised when you assumed you could do something only to receive a phone call from the home office..."I'm sorry -- company policies don't allow for this..."

Ooh good advice. House rules. I was worried about the ria route because then I couldn't sell insurance like disability or long term care.

If insurance is what you like there is a company called Time that send high end insurance guys out to assist Brokers. The guy in my area is awesome. I'll be they could care less about using a real estate license.
