Like many DC lawyers, we love reading the legal gossip blog Above The Law, even though we don't practice law anymore. So we were thrilled to see our past and present converge with Law Shucks' interview of Gordon Chin. As his real estate law practice slowed down (because of the economy), Gordon Chin increasingly focused on his side interior design business. When he left law last November, he turned to design full-time...

The photos show Gordon Chin's Columbia Heights condo, which he designed to be his "little oasis in the city." The condo was recently featured in The Washington Examiner article "Gordon Chin." The economic recession pushed Gordon Chin to follow his design dreams. Has the recession spurred you or anyone you know to focus full-time on creative work?
