I agree with Bored 3l. Small to medium firms love to hire people with biglaw experience. Look at the job lists and you will see biglaw experience preferred. What the other poster misses is that biglaw offers training to their attorneys, most small firms simply can not afford that and through the attorneys into court without training. Although in court experience is great, training is also very helpful, and well lawschools just do not provide it. Biglaw is hard to get into, and quality of life can be horrible, but it will open the doors down the line.
