Recent USD law grad Edward R. Truitt, III uses legal freelancing to jumpstart his legal career

Do law graduates have to work for a law firm for several years before they start their own law practice? No. Find out how to get started at NAFLP's August 12, 2008 event in San Diego, from someone who has forged his own legal career path straight out of law school.

Edward R. Truitt, III, graduated in 2005 from the University of San Diego School of Law. Upon receiving his license in December 2005, Mr. Truitt opened his own law office focusing on start-up and emerging growth business transactional and litigation services.

As a young practitioner, Mr. Truitt leveraged freelance contract work from other local attorneys to gain valuable experience, connections, and cash flow. Mr. Truitt currently serves as General Counsel for a San Diego start-up operating in stealth mode.

Mr. Truitt will be a panel member discussing "Realities of a Freelance Legal Professional" at NAFLP's August 12th "Finding Freedom! Working as a Freelance Legal Professional" event at the University of San Diego.
