Law firms are changing, and that's great. For too long firms have been bloated dinosaurs, and you know what happened to dinosaurs. I don't understand why firms insist on having large staffs. That's stupid, but most of the firms who have large staffs and too many lawyers are not exercising much business judgment. This assumes they ever had business judgement.
Even large firms are streamlining their staffs because it is smart. Get a few good people to work for you, and work hard.
