Trial lawyers like me are close-minded to the topic

"Close*d*-minded," and that really ought to be "about," not "to."

P.S. The whole sentence is really awkward; if I were editing it, I'd change it to

"Trial lawyers like me are closed-minded about the kind of lawyer we should be." or else

"Trial lawyers like me are indifferent to the question of 'What kind of lawyer should I be?'", if you really want to emphasize that the question is being asked.

Sarah: I believe both "close-minded" and "closed-minded" are proper. But I agree the sentence is awkward. I'm going to change it to "Many trial lawyers like me, undoubtedly suffering from ego overload, are too self-absorbed to analyze the legal roads we chose not to travel."
