My Electronic Career Portfolio

Domestic Attorney
My Plan
Domestic Attorneys, also known as Family law attorneys, help clients with divorces, guardianships, prenuptial agreements, adoptions, parental rights and custody. They may also advise clients on the financial and tax implications for these proceedings.
You'll need an undergraduate degree to start a career in law, followed by three years of law school. There is no specific major for aspiring domestic attorneys, so it's best to take a multi-disciplinary approach and hone your verbal and written communications skills as well as your research and logical thinking abilities.Individuals looking to go into family law should choose courses that teach about the law and relationships, especially marriage and parental rights. After graduating from law school, you must pass a written bar exam in the state where you intend to practice. Each state has its own requirements, and some require more than one examination.
Useful Skills
Verbal Communication
- A Domestic Attorney needs to be effective in communicating ideas to many different types of people.
Written Communication
- A Domestic Attorney needs to be able to write out the material he/she will present in front of judges and jurys.
Creative Thinking
- A Domestic Attorney needs to be able to come up with different ways to handle certain cases.
- A Domestic Attorney needs stay organized so that they will be able to obtain the information they are searching for in a quick manner.
Decision Making
- A Domestic Attorney needs to be able to make split-second decisions based on a clients needs.
Problem Solving
- A Domestic Attorney needs to be able to come up with solutions to unique legal problems.
As of December 11, 2014 the annual salary for a domestic attorney was $76,437.
The hourly wage was about $45 an hour.
Job Outlook
Employment of attorneys is projected to grow 10 percent from 2012 to 2022, about as fast as the average for all occupations.
How I Plan To Stand Out
Experts expect competition to be fierce for many more years due to the number of students graduating from law school. To stay ahead of the competition, I plan on taking part in internships and clerkships while I'm still in law school. In this career, it's not just what you know, it's often who you know, so I hope to make new contacts throughout my career.

Another way I plan on standing out is by getting involved with my local bar association and with community activities that pertain to the law. Continuing my education is also very important to me because it shows that I am staying apprised of new developments in my field.

I plan on becoming the most prominent Domestic Attorney in South Carolina. I plan to do this by attending Coastal Carolina University in the fall, where I will be majoring in Political Science. From there I hope to attend Stanford Law School. After law school I will take the South Carolina State Bar and start my own practice in Charleston, South Carolina. My practice will focus mainly on Family Law while also doing Criminal Law, Personal Injury Law, and Labor Law.
*My intentions are to make the most of every opportunity, to acquire not only the expected knowledge, skill or degree from an experience, but to also gain interpersonal and public relations by networking with diverse groups of people.
