You are a young lawyer who wants to gain as much practical litigation skills and trial experience as possible in PI.

For your first couple of years, do you join a general high volume PI firm doing car wrecks, slip and falls, 18 wheeler, etc. OR do you find a more specialized smaller volume firm focusing on med mal, products, offshore injuries, or more complex areas of PI?

Do you start out general and then slowly specialize or just specialize from the get go?

Definitely A. High volume usually means you'll be given more responsibility and more lee-way with how you work your cases. Might be more stressful, but you should get better overall experience at A where at B you might just be "the paperwriting or research" guy

That is definitely my fear if I go with the more specialized route out of the gate.

Option A and it is not close.
