If you mean strictly working for a government, it looks to me like you've covered every combination. But obviously direct services/legal aid have a big impact too. My friend works at a PI org that combines direct services, community organizing and impact litigation (drawn from the pool of direct services litigation) and it seems like a really effective model.

I think it would helps us more if you shared what kind of impact you'd like to make. For example, if you want to "keep criminals off the street," you'd want to be at a DAs office.
