I have a civil engineering degree form India. I graduated almost 9 years ago and I have just about 7 months of experience. I moved to this country after getting married and have kids who are big now. At this juncture of my life I am considering a career in law, especially in patent law. With my background, do I have a chance at all? Is it even worth pursuing it at all? I see in the forum, who are in the field, are either with a EE degrees or are Ph.Ds . So I am a little overwhelmed.
Would appreciate any input.

You are asking a hard question!
Well, I do see lots of civil engineers practicing software patent law.  You don't need to be a IT or EE person for software patent practice.
If you get into top law school, you will most likely get a job.  You can also think of environmental law! Its another huge area.  
There are lawyers practicing construction law.  They help builders, investors and architects.
There are LL.Bs from India practice software licensing/outsourcing here in US.
