Q: I am a first-year associate at a small firm that is highly specialized in media law. It is the kind of position that many others might covet, given its subject matter. In fact, I regularly get inquiries from more senior attorneys about how to break into my field. However, the pay is very mediocre and the workload is never great.

My fear now, though, is that I have been typecast as a media lawyer, making it very difficult to find positions where I can make more money or get more meaty litigation experience. Any recommendations on how to overcome this reality?
