I have a number of classmates who ended up in these kinds of firms (lower T1 in a market with way more small firms than biglaw). Most of them clerked for these firms during law school, and those who didn't networked and hustled (they usually got hired after bar results came back, and not necessarily instantly after). They often did either the juvenile law or civil clinic at my school (the civil clinic did immigration and divorce stuff).
I can't really say anything about where these firms fall on shit-mid law spectrum because, like I said, my context is a market with little biglaw and lots of smaller firms.
