Want to get the perspective of younger attorneys. We’re a 4-attorney firm (2 partners, one associate, one OC) looking to add a 5th attorney. I left a mid-sized litigation firm on the East Coast where I was a partner to open my own firm. Decision was driven by quality of life. We are a civil lit firm. We don’t have billing requirements per se. We have expectations, but we’re reasonable - big on flexibility & quality of life. What are young associates looking for when evaluating job opportunities?

Recently naturalized citizen and first time voter who is underwhelmed by my choices. After researching the platforms and knowing it’s the middle swing/independent voters (in swing state) that matter, I cannot but wonder how a “middle of the path”, centrist party might perform? Would you vote for a 3rd party that is essentially a compromise? I know this is light on specifics but the idea is fiscally conservative, small government, environment friendly, social liberal..thoughts?
