Who says being solo means being small time?  In Mississippi, two female solos, Constance Slaughter Harvey and Christi McCoy are two of the top contenders for the open seat for United States Attorney General for the northern and southern districts of Mississippi, reports the Northeast Mississippi Journal.  Both women boast impressive credentials.  Slaughter-Harvey was the first African American woman to graduate from University of Mississippi Law School in 1970 and is a former assistant secretary of state for elections while McCoy, earned a law degree from Ole Miss in 1994, working a firm and as a municipal judge before opening her practice.

So if you think being solo may cramp your longer term aspirations in the law, think again.  Solo practice isn’t a dead-end, it’s also a road that can take you where you want to go, or to places you never dreamed you would.

    Interesting. A lawyer I know just interviewed with an AUSA job in the Northern District with the supposed next USA. It was neither of the attorneys you listed, but who knows what will really happen until the appointment is made.
