It sounds like New York is best for you, but you are going to need money to stay there.
Thank you for your answer.

Dear Respected Person Mr.Bagu, please tell me, HOW can l ENABLE to work in a Law Firm in US for a specific time period and WHO will sponser me? (This sentence is wrong, but l hope that you understood me) l can't have a (US)newspaper, l am in istanbul now. And l think that newspapers can't help me.
My English is very bad. l can write here with a dictonary but English is so difficult to speak for me. How can l take the job which in classified ads? l need to help. Maybe somebody in here help me about find a job. Do l cast beyond the moon?
l must allow that l want to be in NYC. But if l can't a job in NYC, l can go to another city.
l have a visa for TEN YEARS.
l actually want to work a law firm in US too. But l am hopeless about that. ohh l don't know what will l do l am sad because of that. How can l get out from this deadlock!? (Sorry, l am so negative now, it is not me, but there are too many problems, it's too bad!) .. with kind regards ..

Larger cities with operas, great restaurants, public transportation, and diversity that are cheaper than New York and Los Angeles:

Chicago
Minneapolis
Atlanta
Saint Louis
Denver
Seattle
San Francisco (might be just as expensive as Los Angeles )
Washington D.C.
Miami
Houston
Dallas

Might want to check out some of these cities if you want to save some $.

Ms Paranoid_Android; VISA for 10yrs? Do you mean a passport for 10 yrs? An American Passport is only valid for 10 yrs. An American VISA issued by an American Embassy is limited based upon the status requested. Student,work,Hardship maybe? Various reasons will mandate the days allowed to visit the US. Many people come here and overstay the time allowed and will have a BIG PROBLEM with the Imigration whenever they try to leave the country. They have to show the VISA issued and their Passport of origin. BIG TIME PROBLEM. You might try ENGLAND as it is a lot closer then US for studying ENGLISH. Have you talked with the AMERICAN EMBASSY? Being an attorney puts you HIGH on the LIST of acceptable visiters to US. N Y Times, Chicago Times,Los Angeles Times all have Classified ads where people advertise to eithier Buy, Sell,Rent, Help wanted,(looking for a specific person with certain credentials to fill a specific position in their company etc. You would almost have to be on the spot to phone (make appointment) or apply in person. It is very unlikly for a firm to hire someone unseen unless that person was highly recommended by someone they trusted. Bottom line is that you need to visit the area you wish to be in. Very few people MOVE to an unfamiliar area (country) without first visiting and checking out the job situation, climate, neighborhood, type of people. I went thru this procedure before moving from Canada to US ( Los Angeles Ca). We visited and then applied for Residency thru the Proper Channels. You will need MONEY to VISIT and at the same time check out the availability of a JOB position in your field. Gosh darn, do not know what else to suggest. You are young and I am sure you will achieve some goals. Regards, Stefhen

There are such things as 10 year entry visas.

Classified newspaper ads are often available on the newspaper's website.

Yes, visa for ten years. It means "l can visit to US as a tourist for ten years without permision from American Embassy ."

If you actually have a ten year visa, then a good place to be is Boston. It has a great symphony orchestra, lots of theater -- it's dripping with culture.

The city next to Boston is Cambridge and it is home to Harvard and lots and lots of other great schools. Cambridge is largely composed of students, young and old -- it's friendly and a fun place to be. Maybe Harvard Law School could help you out with a job.

I see a lot of ESL classes going on in Cambridge too. there are colleges that offer ESL at night but they do not give you a degree, they simply teach you English. You might get a certificate if you complete the course, I don't know.

The entire Boston area is served by great public transportation and you can get anywhere easily. You're also near beautiful beaches, rivers, sailing.

Another smaller city that I know of not too far from Boston is Salem and I mention this because they have a college, Salem State College, that teaches ESL at night. It's also cheaper living and is connected by rail to everything else.

The bad side of Boston and Massachusetts in general is that it's as expensive as NY.
