That firm is getting into the realm of midlaw.

Shitlaw is not just size, though, it's also the type of practice.

Man they have a lot of Southwestern grads on there. I saw one USC and one Davis though. One of the attorneys doesn't look like she went to law school. Maybe she did the whole "learned under a licensed attorney" thing in CA.

Why would this firm be considered 'shitlaw'? Is it beneath the OP to even consider working in that firm or one like it?

I don't know what you mean. It seems fine.

I will say I only think of that term as applying to students who finish law school and start their own firms.

No matter what you think or what people tell you, no recent grad is prepared to practice on their own. They're simply not.

Some people choose smaller firms on purpose.

For example, if I chose NLJ250, I would be specialized quickly and would only deal with a 2-3 areas (that were probably related).

If I chose a smaller firm, I would be able to work in probably 8-10 different areas (many of which unrelated).

The pro for the former is the pay, the con is that if that area fades away (due to downsizing, less business in that area, etc.), I'm toast.

The pro for the latter is being versatile, the con is that I may never make a ton of money (but it's very possible).

I would choose a 15 attorney firm comprised of divorce lawyers from the bottom of their TTT as a better example

Doesn't appear to be shit law. Hell, here's part of one associate's C.V.:

Anyone else find the "in three years" addition above to be a pretty ridiculous thing to put on a bio? Come on.

I thought it was a play on word... WC-LAW. And then I discovered the extra c and was sorely disappointed.

Could be much worse. OP was anonymous. Maybe he's self-conscious about his/her summer work this year and needed reassurance??

The guy that posted right after him said: "HEY that's my dad's firm!" It was pretty hilarious.

(apparently he deleted his post though)

Looks like a solo practice. My personal feeling is that any job that pays, puts food in my kids' bellies. Who cares what some rich kid labels it as?

I concur. These days, a job is a job.
