Stop just thinking about yourselves! The amount of "but what about me and my own career and bidlist wah wah"-like comments is annoying. This person's spouse just got laid off. Do you have any idea how much that sucks? Have you ever had a parent or spouse get laid off and come home? It's a terrible sinking feeling you never want. If you're going to post, at least offer advice, counsel, sympathy, etc. Not this continual mob chant of "out the firm". I feel like having a "what is WRONG with you people!" moment.
Sorry about your husband getting laid off. It sucks. I'm sure he had good credentials if he was able to make it to that firm in the first place. In addition to all the law advice people are giving you, just keep doing what you're doing emotionally and morally. The fact that you went out of your way to post here and seek help probably shows something about you. Keep doing that.
Has he made any friends or close "go-to" attorneys? Maybe during his summers or during the time he was at the job? During some of my jobs, I've met attorneys that I know I can count on and confide in (the kind of guys you would feel comfortable just going out and grabbing a beer and just chatting about family, kids, life, etc.). I would tell him to talk with them and let them know what's up. No need to go on hands and knees begging "you gotta job?? You gotta job??" But just talk with them and see if they might know anything.
