California cost of living is insane, want to move to another state but don’t want to the bar and go through all of that again. Guess I’m stuck in Cali.

LOVE California. How long in practice? Look for states with reciprocity and their requirements.

Attorney 3 - $4K is not that crazy for rent for Silicon Valley. This is the most expensive place to live in the country.


I wouldn’t let taking the bar again get in your way. After the CA bar, you’ve got this!

Once you hit the 5 year mark as an attorney Texas will waive you in.


New attorney (29 yrs old), only 1.5 years in practice. This is very nice to know! Thank you for this info! I would consider moving to Texas!


Go in-house or government so you can move without retaking?


That’s the federal pay scale. If you go to USA jobs and sort by pay and attorney you can see what roles would apply it varies depending on agency and location. But it wouldn’t be for first year attorneys if that’s what you mean by entry level. You could definitely make that your first year in government if you land a role at that payscale. GS14 step 7 starts at 145,578. GS-15 goes up to 170,800 plus cost of living depending on location.

Waive into DC?


Sucks to be you Signed, Lawyer from a city where houses are $50,000 total

Yup $50K for a house with a small yard, $150K for a house on 2 acres of waterfront property.... But there are no jobs and a lot of ppl are addicted to meth, so you get what you pay for


I moved from CA to TX and am loving it here

You can waive into the dc bar

Is the 50-50 male-female hiring rule fair? In many offices the applicants are 80-20, thus women are 4 times more likely to make it. Isn’t this the definition of discrimination?
