For Boston-area attorneys with a desire to practice civil law, there’s no place like Crane, Poole & Schmidt. It’s the rare firm where every lawyer is passionate about every case he or she takes on, but here you’ll find co-workers ready to give a moving speech about any issue that comes across their plates. You’ll get to practice alongside talented lawyers like Alan Shore (James Spader) and Denny Crane (William Shatner), and the cases on which you work are likely to address the hottest and most controversial issues of the day. From the dramatic (tobacco industry cases, euthanasia, the Supreme Court) to the salacious (prostitution), every case is on the cutting edge—and every case is a chance for an inspirational closing statement. Crane, Poole & Schmidt cares about quality of life too: it’s also the rare law firm where the weighty caseload doesn’t prohibit taking frequent breaks for a little absurdity.
Reasons: precedent-setting legal work, speechifying, sharing cigars with Spader and Shatner
