For those of you who left Big Law (or made other left turns from your legal career), how do you tell whether you just don't like your working environment or whether you should get out of law altogether?

employment lawyer recommendation in Chapel Hill / Durham?

My Dude has been offered a contract (software/tech/biotech related) with a one-year do-not-compete clause from a contracting agency, which (I think) seeks to preclude his being hired by any of their clients and possibly their clients' clients, which we think could affect his ability to be employed once the 4-6 month contract runs out. The job is supposed to start next week. We're willing to talk to a lawyer, but the one he called today didn't have time and we don't have a good referral. Any suggestions? This is in the NC Triangle (Chapel Hill/Durham, but willing to work by phone or e-mail). [more inside]
