Will a Firm Hire Me if I am Willing to Work for Less?

By from Office
Recruiter, BCG Attorney Search
Question:
I am seeing a ton of advertisements for litigators with 3-5 years of experience. I have over 12 years of experience, and would be willing to work for the same salary as a 5th year attorney. Wouldn't it be attractive for a firm to get a more experienced attorney at a cheaper salary?
