Brand new the MSRP is about 45K and despite the reputation of the old Alfa Romeo’s from the 90’s these seem to be night and day more reliable.

Who are your favorite PLI presenters?
Law students: good for you for tracking me, an alumna of the same school, down through my firm website! You’re doing exactly what you’re encouraged to do! Unfortunately, I’m barely keeping up with my workload as it is, so at best you’re lost in my inbox and at worst you’ve irritated me!
Also, our recruiting procedures are super strict, so the best I can do is forward your email to the right people. And we don’t hire 3Ls. Get some experience elsewhere, then try for Biglaw again in a few years.
