This reads like blatant self promotion and a cheap recruitment tool. Go post job openings elsewhere not on this forum.

Agree it does read like self-promotion ... but, weirdly, it actually seems like a legit shop with pretty pedigreed attorneys. I'm confused.

And the opportunity to be Hugh Hewitt's colleague...which, I guess is either great, or a nightmare depending on your political leanings.

I have a kid and a big form offer, so this doesn't work for me. But I'd be excited to apply otherwise.


Are they even hiring? Honestly I have a lot of republican ties and would consider applying, but I see nowhere where it looks like they want young attorneys.

Why do you need to be single to apply?

Bro, I don't know. I have no tie to the firm. I'm not a summer, so the third hand suggestion that I should apply doesn't shed much light on whether they want summers. I just know they're in LA, their two head guys seem impressive to me, and I heard that they are busy.

But why not shoot an email and see where it gets you.


emailed the firm this morning re: 2L SA. They said NOPE!

I didn't because startups are less stable in my opinion than going to a big name Biglaw firm. But, as a long time TLS poster, I figured it would be nice to pass this along. There used to be an open positions-type thread that I found helpful. I'm sorry that my attempt to help was misperceived as promotion.


Married with a kid has to do with my risk appetite. I'd be interested in getting in on the ground floor if I only had me to worry about. But I don't. So Biglaw here I come.


I was encouraged to email the managing partner to apply. I didn't. But maybe you can. I agree that their website could use work.


Why are you anon?

Jesus fucking Christ. Because I was talking about my family and communications I had with real people and in real life. Because I have hundreds of posts in the employment and clerkship forums and it's getting pretty fucking easy to identify me. I'm frankly a little fucking annoyed that people are second guessing me for a post I did that won't help me even a little bit and may hopefully help someone in the TLS community. God forbid that someone try to direct someone to a potential job opportunity on here instead of doing another "what are my chances" thread or another "should I take X firm or Y firm" thread.


You have to post anon because you've posted elsewhere on this site?

I'd say read the rules for anon posting, but this is obviously a bad troll.

Just out this guy

@OP: I get why people are skeptical that it comes off as the firm doing some self-promotion.

@everyoneelse: As far as I can tell, it's not self-promotion and the OP is someone who has been helpful on TLS before.

No, there's no reason to out this poster. They have posted many helpful things here across the years that they've had an account here, and there's no reason they should feel obligated to link a real-life conversation by which they could be identified with their account here. People need to calm down.

Edit: scooped by bk, but am going to leave this.

When a poster is anon it might not be immediately obvious that any information is potentially revealing unless it's considered in combination with many of the poster's other posts. Anon abuse is when people are doing stupid or jackass things and hiding behind anon to mask them from the shame of being a fuckhead. This is not anon abuse, jesus christ.
