"I find it hard to believe there's a town so small it doesn't have enough lawyers yet it also somehow has enough folks to provide a steady stream of SSI cases (before boomers got old), civil rights cases and court appointed referrals for a newly minted lawyer to make $100k. It literally and figuratively doesn't add up. This kind of "advice" is dangerous given how relatively little prospective law school applicants know."
Not advice. Just what worked for me for a while. Of course as Citylaw might tell you, small California counties notoriously also have their dangers. In 5 years I was there, I got punched by an opposing party, spat on, had a confused client show up with a rifle at the front door on a weekend, got accused falsely of several felonies, received numerous threats and was finally warned to get out of town. Myself and a lot of attorneys there either had conceal carry, kept a loaded gun in the desk or just plain out in the open. As they used to say, there is no law north of the _______ river.
