Dec. 10 (Bloomberg) -- Inspired by a post on the website Above the Law, we asked our Bloomberg Billionaires Index colleagues to research the wealthiest lawyers in America.* None of their fortunes are from practicing law: Robert Rowling is number 5. He briefly practiced tax law before joining his father's oil and gas company. Number 4 is Randa Duncan Williams, daughter of oil billionaire Dan Duncan. New York's Richard LeFrak is number 3. He went into the family real estate business after law school. Number 2 is Richard Kinder. He practiced law in Houston, then joined his friend Ken Lay at Enron. And number 1 is Rob Walton, chairman of Wal-Mart. *Net worth as of November 16, 2012 (Source: Bloomberg)
