I sincerely feel for anyone having to hit up Craigslist for an attorney position. Wild west out there.

I got out in '09, so not too long ago. I refused to look at Craigslist. There might have been legit jobs posted, but I don't even like selling stuff on there. It's a matter of trust and I don't trust anonymous postings for the most part. Can't blame anyone for seeking employment wherever it is to be found.

Mere words, especially the ones allowed in the law forum, cannot adequately describe the sirens I am hearing while reading this ad... fearless attittude... expert in legal maneuvers... ye gods.

If I were an ambitious DA looking to make a name for myself (and with family money to fall back on should I get impeached/defeated for reelection) I would get a couple of cops/DA investigators to go over to the "business' ASAP and arrest the author of this ad, basically on the theory that he must be doing plainly illegal stuff and if we come in with no warning there will be enough evidence to convict right there in plain sight on the premises. Risky, I know. But I think it would pay off.

This ad is open-minded compared to other ads I've seen lately on CL. One Inland Empire firm occasionally posts on CL for an attorney who graduated in the top 10% from a top-tier school. Even in this economy, I'm surprised anyone would respond to an ad for a firm in the "Inland Empire," which is one of the lousiest places in the world.

How does the Inland Empire suck any worse than other large crime filled metro areas? At least it has palm trees, mountains, and a nice climate. I honestly think it would be more depressing living in a rundown part of a large Northeastern or Midwestern city with no trees, shitty weather, and the same crime and unemployment and apartments or rowhouses instead of actual detached houses. I mean there's got to be shittier places in the world not just in the US but places like Lagos, Nigeria or the Soweto of Johannesburg, or the favelas of Rio de Janeiro. I couldn't even handle a week in Manhattan - not seeing trees and nature except for ones planted on streets. I guess you could go to Central Park on a Sunday cuz otherwise who has time to do that?

You think the trees out in Colton or these other bumblefuck towns are native to the area?

No but at least they planted them to make them look nice and there is some topography. I don't think you would like the Dakotas (other than the Black Hills), Western Nebraska, Western Kansas, Eastern Colorado, parts of Wyoming, and other places that look far more desolate than Southern California. I've never been to Nevada which looks like it has far less native plant life than Southern California but I've seen pictures with the deserts and awesome mountains and it looks far more physically attractive than any of the above areas. Then of course if ugly concrete buildings and urban blight block out your view of any nature I think that's the worst of all.

The climate is horrible given the heat and smog. The Inland Empire is a half step-up from Stockton or Fresno. Granted, I've never been out to rundown Midwestern or Northeastern cities, but as far as California is concerned, it's up there on the shittiness scale.

You are all correct on all counts. Some parts of the Inland Empire are nice, however, like Temecula and Murrieta. Also Big Bear and Lake Arrowhead. I sent a nasty message to the writer of this ad!

ha ha homelesscrackheadesq, those places suck! Except for Winchester; parts of Winchester are nice. I volunteer at a horse rescue out there. A lot of new housing tracts, also. Do you live in the I.E.? I've lived in Murrieta a really long time.

I live in the IE (Rancho Cucamonga) and its a nice place to live. One hour drive to the mountains, deserts and beaches. Three hour drive to Vegas. But San Bernardino and the high desert (Victorville, Apple Valley, Barstow etc) suck.

I had a case in Barstow once. I kinda liked it. It had a sort of at-the-ends-of-civilization vibe to it.

If you want to increase that vibe go visit the Needles courthouse.

Has anyone here seen the David Lynch movie?

I'm trying to think which I'd rather do, watch that turgid mess over again or work the three hours for someone who wants Michigan/Cal/Cornell-level grads to work part-time for crap pay doing "legal maneuvers."

I have to agree with the sentiment of the above posters.

Is this a serious ad? Really? You want crafty cream of the crop attorneys (not to mention the "fearless attitude" and "expert in legal maneuvers" part) but you can't pay them more than $25 an hour? At half-time?

Good luck with that.
