Economist Angelos Angelou came out with his annual prediction regarding the Austin economy recently and, as in the past few years, his forecast for Austin is positive.
He predicts that Austin will experience continued growth for the next two years, but the pace of the growth will slow somewhat, which is a good thing since it will take pressure off rising housing prices and the availability of talent.
His prediction includes a projection for significant growth in the Professional/Business Services sector, which encompasses legal services. So Austin lawyers (and those who want to be Austin lawyers) should find opportunities available. See the attached article from the Austin Business Journal for a summary of Angelou's economic forecast for Austin.
