Physics BS New Grad seeks work@ firm-practicality?

I have just completed a BS in (applied) Physics and would like to go into the patent law industry. I have about 2.5 years research experience as an undergrad (mostly electrical/semiconductor/optics) and no law experience and am currently planning to relocate to nyc from the dc area.
I've been told the easiest route would be for me to work for the USPTO to gain experience but I much rather prefer to just start at a firm (don't want to be in DC).
Also, I do plan on attaining a USPTO patent agent certification sometime in the next year, but want to start in the industry now.
 
Is it practical for me to assume that i'll be able to find work at a firm (in nyc, or in general) with my physics bs, my minimal research experience, and no law experience?
 
Also, anyone ever in a similar position who has their story to share would be great.
