About to move from civil legal services (10 years) to biglaw and scared shitless. Accepting an offer for a staff attorney position, so not partner track atm. Part of me feels too old to start and succeed in biglaw… Any advice from other non-traditional laterals? (Or those who’ve worked with them?)

Just make sure they are paying your properly for the hours you work. Sometimes they try to squeeze associate hours out of staff, and since they don’t lie about partner track to you, they don’t expect you to jump the same way. Kick ass and enjoy the $$$
