If you're on the partner track, either you're the type that will always be biglaw, or, you'll saddle yourself with so much debt to justify your existence that you'll never leave.

If you figure you need ~$90k/year to live on, you can sustain that level of expense with a balanced $3M portfolio. Assuming a 6% rate of return on your investments, you'd need to save ~$120,000/year for 15 years to get to $3M. Would take dedication, but that's very achievable for a BigLaw salary.

Most who can make it through 12 years of bigaw are so irrevocably broken by the experience they won't be able to retire.

Hard to make it past a few years on a frugal budget in biglaw. After a while, you'll want to enjoy the same things as your peers, e.g., weekly massages, eating out every night, etc. Some will come because of peer pressure, other out of necessity as you'll be stressed the fuck out and fapping just doesn't provide enough of a mental release to never-ending pain of shit-eating grinning as more work gets piled on your plate.

But then you realize that spending a lot of money on pointless shit just because “you deserve it” is only buying you more years on the treadmill

When does that happen? Just around the mid-level to senior-level transition? Only did a few yrs in biglaw.

I remember a senior atty being incredibly frugal. Like using coupons at Subway and skipping out on group lunches. I don't blame him on the group lunches, the shrews always picked some trendy, extremely expensive place.

With pension it depends on the multiplier and also on your contribution percent.
