The only problem you might have is with DA's offices. Some DA's offices don't like people who've worked for PD Offices. Some PD's offices are just as bad in their treatment of people who did DA work.

I've heard that you get to do a lot of litigation, although it's a lot of low-level drug offenders.You are thinking of state court. AUSA's don't waste their time dealing with low-level drug offenders. They only choose to prosecute cases with large amounts of drugs and dealers higher up in the distribution chain. They will sometimes choose to step in if there is a gun involved where the defendant has a history of drug and gun offenses. Other than that, if it's not crossing state/USA borders or on Federal property, then AUSA's (and therefore Fed. Pub. Def.) don't deal with it. They leave it to the states.
