Does big law do crim...? I think you may need to lower expectations money wise for what you want. Sounds like you want a smaller firm style of litigation with top tier pay.

Yeah. I guess when I think a "mix of civil and crim" I don't think of white collar sec violations as crim in my head. Makes sense.
