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.

Success Stories

LawCrossing was probably the best legal board I have used. I liked the layout and it was user friendly. I tried to use another job board, but it was not user friendly and was kind of a pain, whereas LawCrossing was easy to use to find jobs. I really liked it. I would certainly recommend this site and service to my colleagues.
