I'm Currently in a Practice Group. Should I Take an Offer From a New Firm?

By
Senior Managing Director-East Coast
Question:
I am currently working as an associate at a top tier DC law firm. I started interviewing with other law firms several months ago and have been really selective about the firms that I am interested in. I recently received an offer from a regional law firm with a really strong reputation and excellent work. Although I am really excited about this opportunity and got along well with the practice group, I am still torn. What should I do?
