With 1.9 million Instagram followers, there’s no need for deliberation on Pia Muehlenbeck, a former lawyer turned model. Her choice of career change has worked out well.

Based in Australia but originally from Germany, Muehlenbeck is one of the country’s best-known social media influencers, who’s racked up 45 million likes and 20 million video views. She eighty-sixed her life in law in 2014 and went into business for herself, founding Slinkii, an sportswear company.

She’s also an editor at fashion magazine Grazia, and is an ambassador for a champagne brand G.H. Mumm. The verdict is in: she doesn’t need to spend another minute in a courtroom.

Take a look at a number of the reasons why she’ll never have to try another case.
