This seems a bit outdated.

i read some article saying Pittsburg, of all places, is the best city for new attorneys.  no idea why. 
So based on jobs, cost of living, city quality, etc.. what do you think is the best city for young or new attorneys?  I have read in various articles that San Jose will probably pick up in demand for attorneys again, so I'd have to go with San Jose when considering how great that entire Bay Area is.

Here are some of the newer rankigns:

In April 2010, Abovethelaw.com conducted a two-week survey in which attorneys voted for the most popular cities for lawyers.
The top four were Dallas, San Francisco, Washington, D.C., and Chicago, with Dallas noted for its stable economy,
San Francisco for its nationally recognized firms, Chicago for its fewer lawyers per capita, and D.C. for its variety of attorney jobs.
In comparison, Forbes.com listed San Francisco as the top city in 2008 for its plentiful high-salaried positions.
