A junior lawyer has traded her £60,000 a year salary to communicate with people’s pets — both living and dead.

Nikki Vasconez, 33, was working as a property lawyer when she began researching how to ‘speak’ with animals.

Vasconez began by practising with family and friend’s pets but in September 2021, she launched her pet psychic business on social media and “began to gain a steady following and it wasn’t long before requests started pouring in”.

Up until 2021, Vasconez who studied at both Florida Atlantic University and Delaware Law School, worked at Pennsylvania-based HighPoint Law Offices.

The pet psychic charges clients around £280 for a one-hour session where she will sit in a quiet room, studying a photo of the animal and “telepathically” ask a series of questions. She then records her questions and the responses on her phone for owners.

Vasconez says she is also able to communicate with animals that have passed away, which she says makes up around half of her requests.

Vasconez told Metro that her move was borne out her having a ruff time in law.

“I was so miserable in my previous job, I was working huge hours and was just unhappy but was too scared to change. Until this came along.”

And the career switch appears to be paying off, with Vasconez now said to be earning more than what she did in her previous gig as a lawyer.

Vasconez isn’t the first to abandon the legal profession for an unconventional career.

Legal Cheek previously reported on a New Zealand lawyer turned clown, a Linklaters lawyer and a criminal barrister who swapped cases for cakes and even a junior lawyer who quit to do ‘The Nicest Job in Britain’.

A more honest profession than the one she has just left.

Dead or Alive

I would like to book an appointment for her to speak to Schrödinger’s cat. That will answer the bloody question once and for all.

A pet *psychic*?

No loss to the profession, then.
