If that's the case, it will make things a little harder for me to get back to TX initially, but I'm fine with working in FL for 5-7 years and then moving back to TX eventually. Who knows, I may end up falling in love with FL again, although the heat and humidity are way too much for me to handle sometimes.
Going from UF Law immediately to TX is very doable--I know a number of people from my class that did just that (most of whom came to UF Law from Texas). Do a Martindale Hubbell search of UF Law grads in Texas and you'll see that there's quite a few (even though the Martindale search misses about 80% of practicing attorneys).
You just made my day with this post!
Happy to help! I ran a very quick Martindale search of UF Law grads in Texas and it came back with 175 attorneys. And, as I mentioned, most attorneys don't show up on Martindale searches. In the one minute I looked at the results, I saw many of the top TX firms were well-represented, including Haynes & Boone, Andrews Kurth, etc. You can also search by the amount of years in practice, which should give you an idea of what cities and firms young UF Law grads are going to in Texas.
