The Staff Attorney's answer was correct. It depends on the market and the firm's stature in the market. For example, are you targeting larger or regional firms in a market or boutiques?

I'm in a small/mid market and here, there's a well known local recruiter who, among other things, frequents the local bar association events and places partners in the biglaw firms. And in the smaller ones when they're on their way out. I figure most markets have to have someone like her, you just have to find them. I'm pretty sure she has every firm in the city's salary bands, ppp and billable hours memorized...

I did a small portion of presentation in front of the client. This is my first time. I don’t think I did it great. A partner on the table, he told me good work. But deep in my heart I feel suck!!
