Even if the poll had been well-written and concise, we probably would not have learned much. I doubt there are many posters on TLS who have worked at both Quinn and Boies. Beyond that, you're just going to get anecdotes from partisans of both firms.

They're both excellent litigation firms with a reputation for working their associates hard. Boies pays a little more. If you can't make up your mind based on that, then go to your callbacks, talk to the firms' lawyers, and go with what seems like a better fit.

I think "little" is an understatement. Base salary at Boies is already ahead of Quinn + bonus. And Boies bonuses are supposed to be insane.
