If you are confident in your strength, challenge the strongest one for leadership of the clan. However, if the leader is not yet withered with age, I'd advise you to slink away, eyes averted.
And don't leave a note - gorillas hate notes.

OP, you need to find the managing/rainmaking partner to assert your dominance. The partner who yelled at you is not the true alpha calling the shots. Physical confrontation will establish dominance most effectively. Something along the lines of barging into their office during a client meeting, shoving the senior partner while beating your chest and asserting, "and I could to YOUR job too - oscillating between bert staring the partner and then the client." 15 seconds of this and you will be first chairing bet-the-company trials in a flash brah.
Fuck that. Obviously this firm is mired in the Dark Ages and will soon fold. No amount of convincing will snap them out of their obviously inefficient use of valuable resources.
OP: Go directly to the clients. From what little I know about your firm, you won't have any problem persuading a few of them to become your clients. Then tell your school you plan to take both Fall and Spring finals in a month, and tell the State Supreme Court to make an exception allowing you to take the bar the next week. Obviously you'll pass with a week's prep, and then you'll be good to go.
