And in 2014 I was struggling to find a way out of document review. Like many attorneys entering the legal market in 2010, document review was the only viable option for a job that could provide decent pay. I quickly realized that document review is not a long-term career option. After almost having a nervous break down from the stress of the job, I knew I had to find another career fast!
I was introduced to Anti-Money Laundering (a division of Financial Crimes) and everything changed - and that's why I am excited to share with you this Case Study, where I explain, step-by-step, how I was able to transition from document review where I was being paid $25/hour to Anti-Money Laundering where in 7 months my rate more than tripled to $80/hour.
Today I consult with banks and other financial institutions to assist them in conducting various AML investigations. I also help document review attorneys overcome the four obstacles preventing them from landing a position in Financial Crimes, so they can enjoy being an attorney again, work on exciting cases, and have the ability to travel internationally while working in an exciting career.
