Texas Lawyer – First Steps: Baby Lawyers Set Off on Disparate Professional Paths

As political and financial leaders take extraordinary steps to revitalize the economy, the majority of the 2008 graduates from Texas’ law schools are in the first few months of their professional lives as attorneys. A credit crisis, a volatile stock market and unpredictable global economy form the business backdrop for these grads.

Texas Lawyer is following the careers of five who represent a handful of the diverse job choices available to them. Josh Adam Fogelman, Alexis Hoff, Ronn Paiz Garcia, Juliet M. McBride and Paul Sebastian Di Blasi graduated from Texas law schools in May. One sat for and passed the February Texas bar exam, while the other four passed the July exam. Their pay ranges from $20 an hour to an annual base salary of $160,000.

Texas Lawyer will check in with each of these attorneys annually for the next several years and share their career stories.
