Didn't know they were in Modesto. O-o

And who says I like Gallo? To be completely honest, California wines, especially mass produced plonk like Gallo puts out, are not my thing. I find OR and WA wines much more balanced.

Shit, maybe Portland is the answer? No bar exam, 1 hour from Willamette Valley, 4 hours from Walla Walla, 1 hour from the beach, 1 hour from the mountains...

no bar, really? I thought everything in Portland was geared to discourage anyone else from moving there.

Technically part of the Willamette Valley, and more like an hour and a half to beach/mountains. But otherwise, yeah. Great food scene, great beer/wine/artisan booze, and a full-nude, full-bar strip club on just about every corner. Jobs can be scarce, though.

Feel free to pm if you have real stumptown questions.

Pretty much taking the "you give us reciprocity, we'll give you reciprocity" approach.

I fully support anyone who wants to stop being a lawyer. Find something you love and figure out a way to earn money doing it.

In other words, "reciprocity."

Apparently the answer is "geared to discourage anyone from California moving there."

Well, yeah, but it started out as a more limited version (WA and ID only).

Wait, no it wasn't.
There's this guy, reported in a competition law news service I get:

Quote:
⇒ San Francisco litigator and Jones Day partner Peter Larson has left the firm to work as the senior vice president and general counsel to Trinchero Family Estates, a Napa valley winery. Larson until recently was counsel to Wal-Mart in the In re DVD Rental Antitrust Litigation where a settlement between the national retailer and anyone who rented a DVD on Netflix is still being challenged in the Ninth Circuit for the $6.8 million it awarded to plaintiffsí attorneys.

Re: Discussion of Firms and Life in SF/SV

This job doesn't look like it requires a CA license, or any license. I can only imagine the clusterfucks you'd have to deal with.

Just saw this post now. So weird. ABBA and I just had lunch today and she mentioned you had made the transition to doing something else.

Moving seems like a good reason to make the change. I'm seriously considering it.

Oh, fuck yes. (Or maybe even "Oh fuck, yes.") That's perfect.
