Question by searching4dallaslitjob: Where are all the newly-admitted litigator jobs in Dallas, Texas?
I’m in the “no job without experience / no experience without a job” paradox that just won’t seem to quit. All I’ve ever wanted to do is be a trial lawyer in Dallas, Texas. Now that I’ve jumped through all of the requisite “hoops,” the market has all but dried up. There seems to be plenty of work in the IP or Finance fields, but these practice areas are not my cup of tea. I simply want to be a civil litigator. Am I grasping at straws here? Do I really have to succumb to the Yuppie Nuremberg defense of “I took this job because I have a mortgage?” I guess what I’m asking is – am I right to have lost my faith?

Well, you could go into practice for yourself–I did.

As for experience, offer free services to another attorney and shadow the other attorney for a while, get to know the major players in the legal environment in Dallas.

Being on my own, I go to court all the time to file my own documents, help people fix traffic tickets, etc. By making several appearances a week at the local courthouse, other attorney, bailiffs, and staff recognize me.

Working civil litigation for a firm is not all its cracked up to be. Go it on your own and get some mentors. Expand your area of interest too. Family law and criminal law are other opportunities to litigate and both of those also get you in the court quit a lot. You have many options.
