Comment about job opps

Postby nygiants56 » Wed Jun 29, 2011 4:49 pm

Obviously with the overwhelming sentiment in this forum about working for "big law", with the current economic situation why is the realm of opening a real estate, wills, divorce, etc practice not discussed?

1. you don't make enough money to pay off your loans
2. a lot of ppl are attracted to the prestige of a V10 etc. which you don't get from working at a mom and pop shop
3. supposedly better training at biglaw firms (although I'm still not sold on this)

Oh yeah, it's a fucking cakewalk to just open up your own practice. I'm sure the vast majority of people who try this don't fail or anything like that.

most of the top "consumer protection," mass tort, product liability, personal injury etc.... trial attorneys start at big law or at least some mid law insurance defense firm I have yet to see a successful bio of any top player that just started up out of law school...

Just to clarify, are you bragging about the fact that you paid someone to make your resume for you?
