California’s Silicon Valley has no strict geographic definitions, but it’s more than a state of mind-it’s a state of income. People come here to get rich. Arriving lawyers can look ahead to helping newly minted Google millionaires spend their fortunes, managing Oracle’s PeopleSoft takeover, and venturing optimists’ capital. Palo Alto, which is located in the San Francisco Bay Area, is the central setting for Silicon Valley, which is the technology capital of the United States. If it is high tech, it is from Silicon Valley and Palo Alto. Economically speaking, this area accounts for over one-third of all major venture investments in the United States. Palo Alto has a large legal community and is filled with many small law firms as well as several of the best law firms in the nation.
