Still with Matthies on this one. Desperate times call for desperate measures. Pretty much comes down to survival at this point, at least professional survival. Miss P, you're in NYC. Go down to Court St. and throw a rock and you'll hit about 12 lawyers. I take it the OP is in Dallas, there's gotta be something man. Even in this economy. Hell, when I go to the courthouse in a suit and observe trials a couple of people always come up to me and ask if I'm a lawyer. Surely, with a bar card, you can find something. If the transactional thing isn't working out, you may need to think about a different practice area. It may not be what you want, but it's gotta beat serving up grande mocha fraps with skim milk and no whip. But again, that's just me. I'll be damned if I'm ever on my ass like that. I'll make something happen. But not everybody is that resourceful. Again, do you.
