It is common knowledge that law firms employ the majority of attorneys practicing today. Selecting the right firm is just as important a decision as where you choose to go to law school or in which substantive legal discipline you choose to practice. In my two decades of practice, I have learned all too well that such decisions can make or break the quality of your professional life and the potential opportunities you might encounter. Unfortunately, there is no single track for law firm careers, and understanding what the selection of law firm types can and cannot offer should be synthesized, applied and leveraged to evaluate your own potential goals and objectives.
