The Arizona Legal Market

Most of Arizona’s lawyers and legal positions are in Phoenix and most positions are in law firms. Currently, there are approximately 11,000 lawyers in Maricopa County. Approximately seven law firms in Phoenix employ 75 or more lawyers and, in most cases, have branch offices in Tucson.

A number of national law firms have branch offices in Phoenix. Most of these firms have been joined by local talent with their own clients, and service major clients in the area.

While many corporations have headquarters in Phoenix, there have historically been few in-house opportunities. The few large corporations that do have larger staffs tend to have low turnover and there is intense competition for the few positions that do become available.

Because Arizona is such an attractive place to live, law firms have the luxury of being extremely particular about who they will hire, especially from out of state. Those with the best possibility of success tend to be low to mid-level associates with top credentials from well-known law firms.
