I also don't see this changing any time soon as the schedule in the case I'm on is expedited and aggressive. Plus, a lot of traveling should be in my near (and mid-term, and distant) future.
That said, I'm really enjoying the work. Very exciting, lots of action, constant battling over this and that. It's tiring and often stressful, but at its core it's what I signed up for when I got into litigation. I'm starting to get to the point where I'm senior enough that the amount of real "lawyering" starts to balance all the busy work, the shit work, the hierarchical stuff, and all the hours. We'll see how it keeps going.
