Adam Leitman Bailey

Summary: Law school students are always told to be at the top of their class at the best law schools, but a prominent law firm may change the way firms look at hiring recent graduates.

Adam Leitman Bailey, founder of the prestigious real estate law firm Adam Leitman Bailey, P.C. has a different theory about what makes a successful attorney. In a Huffington Post article, he describes the hiring procedure at his firm.

  
What
Where


The firm only hires the top of the class from the second, third, or fourth tier law schools, never the first tier Ivy League schools. He has found that these graduates have a bigger yearning to excel and work hard as an attorney. Their recruits “have been battle tested in one manner or another” by having to excel more to be recognized among their peers at Ivy League schools.

They follow a similar procedure to the Major League Baseball’s Farm System by trying out potential hires for a semester or during the summer. They only choose recruits that they already believe could be hired. The best are offered positions and a few have made it to become partners.

Adam Leitman Bailey is a smaller and newer firm that only has its reputation as hard working to rely on. They know they have win cases and be better than any other firm in order to gain clients. They focus on one type of law, real estate, so that they can be the best at it. As Bailey puts it “We are only as good as the attorneys we hire.” They have to make sure they are hiring only the best graduates to keep the quality at the firm at the highest possible.

There are many factors that the firm considers when deciding not to choose Ivy League graduates, including that fact that most of them are not pressured into succeeding because it is often handed to them by big law firms anyways.
