I am currently practicing law in Texas, and while I like aspects of my current job, my wife and I have decided to move to the Midwest, where we both grew up and have family support. I have been out of school for six years and am under the impression that I can waive into the Illinois Bar as well as a handful of other state bars throughout the Midwest.
