Since I've only ever heard of Paul Hastings, I'd go with that one.

You've never heard of Jackson Walker? They have a pretty big presence in TX.

OP, what sort of work are you looking for/hoping to get into at any of these firms? Practice group can be huge in making these decisions.

Further, what are your reasons for assuming you have offers coming soon from all of them? What makes you that confident? I'm not doubting you'll get the offers, but this can be a cart and horse problem if you're not careful in considering your options.

ETA: I sheepishly looked up Porter and Strasburger because I was less familiar, and it seems especially true that practice group, geographic preference, and/or compensation should drive this decision.

Thank you so much. I am interested in transactional matters rather than litigation and would like to have the option to do some international work.
