If so, take a look at this bit of wisdom shared by Mark Herrmann.
As for me: I like where I am. I didn’t get here with circuit court or Supreme Court credentials (I don’t have any); just an aptitude for the work coupled with years of experience. My only advice is not to let your earliest years out of law school define your entire career. It took me 10 years to figure out that appellate practice best suited me.
