The answer to your question depends upon your background, location preference, and firm culture/size preference.

Finnegan's practice is probably more diversified than Fitzpatrick. That said, there's not necessarily anything wrong with being more or less diversified, especially as certain industries see business dry up or boom (cyclically or not). You've really got to make a choice about what you want to do and which firm will give you the opportunities to do it. Finnegan is also about 2x larger than Fitzpatrick (but IIRC they both took around the same summer classes this past year). DC v. NYC is also a huge consideration. The list goes on...

I'm not going to say more in this poast, but if you want moar insight, shoot me a PM. Both firms are excellent, so you can't really go wrong either way.

NYC vs. DC should be the tie-breaker.
