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.
Agreed. My opinion is that as long as you like what you are doing and you can survive doing it, then go for it. I have known many solo-practitioners who have done very very well and were successful enough on their own to go into big law but chose not to. Big firms practice many "shit law" areas and need people who know them well. I am mostly speaking from experience with immigration attorneys, but I know several who had solo firms, then went into big law, and then got right back out when they realized it sucked. People on here don't seem to realize that the legal profession is not as strict and closed-off as they think it is. Success is not only measured by one's ability to get an SA with a hugely awesome-tacular firm for 2L summer. And that SA is not the only way into a big firm evar. My opinion is that being good at and liking what you do is more important than the name and size of the place where you do it.
