Real Estate Attorneys, how did you get involved in real estate law... I would like the opportunity to be an associate in that sector and learn if I like it but every firm I see wants associates to come with experience. How did you guys get into this elusive society?

It’s a boys club for sure. Learn to “talk to talk” and you should be ok. I landed my first lateral gig because I knew the jargon, not because I was the most experienced candidate.

I feel your pain, but for corporate. I was looking for corporate and took a real estate job because they were hiring. Right place right time kind of thing. Leverage your seniority as a lateral to retool. Not sure if you’re already at a firm, but look for internal opportunities and have the discussion if you have a real estate group in the firm. I will say that if you didn’t love property law and secured transactions, you won’t like being a real estate attorney.

Tampa lawyers who work downtown: where do you live? Looking to purchase a house soon and am trying to decide between a low commute time (crappier house and a tight move financially) and a longer commute time (nicer house and more comfortable financially). The longer commute time also comes with better public schools, and I want to have kids.

I’ve applied for some in house roles but I’ve only got three years of practice so I’m not sure I’m qualified. Is it possible to find something or will I need to suck it up and take the bar again?
