  • Many attorneys get into the business of law for the money.
  • And who can blame them? Practicing law can be a very lucrative endeavor.

In Downtown Los Angeles, there’s a much talked about bar called Perch. Perch sits atop the 14th floor an early 20th-century art-deco styled office building deep within the concrete bowels of the downtown historic core district. Perch is a place to see and be seen.

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.
