I am almost finished my bachelors degree. My future hubby is in law school. Currently, we are living in New England and contemplating a move to North or South Carolina in a couple years to plant our roots, but with the economy being the way it is, I'm worried employment will be difficult to find, especially for an entry level attorney and I am planning to start my own business. I suppose I'm looking for reassurance or warnings now lol

I've called the coast of NC home for about 30 years now. In all the time I've lived here I have never met an unemployed lawyer. As far as starting your own business-If you learn the local market and don't try to educate the local market then you should fare well.

Well, that is somewhat reassuring about the lawyers. Could you give me rundown of areas included in "coastal nc"?

What is coastal and what is not has often been a debate here at CD. I refer to coastal as any town,city, municipality adjacent to any of the ocean, sound, estaurine waters. (Inner and outer banks). Some refer to the coastal plains region as coastal.
In any case, the coastal area of NC is very diverse. Wilmington is nothing like Morehead City or Beaufort. New Bern is nothing like Manteo or Nags Head. And if start naming off towns/municipalities like Bath, Aurora, Otway, Sneads Ferry, Swan Quarter, Ogden, Creswell-Well, about the only thing in common with them is size. All Small!

If you get a map and look east of US 17, that is a pretty good indicator of coastal NC.

I have seen a few law offices go out of business in New Bern..or maybe they joined other practices, but I agree..you do not see many.
