And the name of your firm is what again? Yeah, right.
I'm at a v-50 firm, and I'm typically on the interview committee for lateral candidates, as well as summer associates. If I ever see "Esq." on the person's resume, I would think the person is douchy. We know you are a lawyer, that's why we're giving you an interview. No need to use "Esq." -- just as lawyers typically do not use "Esq." when filing court papers. I also think it's extremely douchy to use latin phrases in legal writing when the equivalent english phrase would convey the same meaning.
Not a tough question... again, what is the name of your firm?
For obvious reasons I'm not going to disclosed the name of my firm, just as I wouldn't ask you to disclose your real name. But perhaps you wouldn't mind pm-ing your real name, just in case your resume ever come across my desk.
