A Note on San Diego: San Diego has historically been an extremely competitive legal market. Given the incredible climate, and the fact that the salaries in many San Diego firms are competitive with those in New York, Chicago, San Francisco and Los Angeles, very few attorneys would turn down the opportunity to work in San Diego. In this current economic slowdown, many of these stellar attorneys are being let go. We venture to say that the caliber of attorneys in large law firms in San Diego exceeds that of Palo Alto, in general. Given San Diego's somewhat "small town atmosphere", the fact that these attorneys are being let go means that San Diego firms are more open to hiring their own than attorneys from elsewhere in the United States.
The "Catch" for Corporate Attorneys - We have been getting corporate attorneys interviews every week on the West Coast, but solely in Los Angeles and San Francisco. The market in Los Angeles (which is a less cyclical market than San Francisco) is by far the liveliest, but San Francisco firms are still hiring, unlike the San Diego, Seattle and Palo Alto markets.
