Mr. Smith and others say this is a growing area in the legal community. "I get lots of calls now by lawyers interested in getting into the field. Anytime there's an opening, I see lots of applications," he said.

Nor are the applicants for positions in Mr. Smith's office fresh out of law school. "I get people who are very well established that want to get away from the rat race. They are people who've made their money in the past, and now salary isn't that important."

Success Stories

LawCrossing is fantastic! When I am looking for a job, it is the first place I come to. The service is very good and I enjoyed the emails. LawCrossing has more jobs and it is more tailored. Other sites gave a lot of irrelevant results. Your site may have a great algorithm, but it felt like an actual person choosing jobs they felt would be good based on my search. I will always recommend this site!
