How to Become a Small-Town Lawyer: Be a Small Town, Rural Lawyer
 
  • Lawyers who are, and some who are not from a small town have found small-town practice quite satisfying.
  • You know everyone in a small town, which is a big plus.
  • Another plus is knowing and understanding those who live in the small town.
  • The biggest plus with small-town practice is the small town’s legal firm can be less stressful.
 
Introduction
 
Seriously, can there be anything more romantic than the big-city lawyer opting out of his or her big-city law firm to downscale their practice in a small firm within a smaller city, or better yet, a small town?
 
No.
 
At least not in law.
 
Practicing law in a small town can have more benefits than we realize. For one, life is intimate and can be slower as opposed to the supercharged existence that pervades big-city lawyering. People are more laid back, less confrontational, know you by your first name, and not by the affluence of your area or zip code.
