Just need a quick moment to vent! Two weeks ago, I applied for an associate position at a family law firm. I received a response almost immediately from the managing partner, who asked if I was available for a preliminary Zoom interview the very next day. The Zoom interview went exceedingly well, and I was asked to come in for an in-person interview the following afternoon. At the end of the second interview, the managing partner briefly explained the compensation... (CONTINUED IN COMMENTS)

Our mid-size (35 lawyer) Midwest law firm is creating a new position for a Business Operations Manager. We have historically managed ourselves through a Board. No managing partner. This new position is a non-attorney professional. Thoughts on appropriate salary?

“The client has authorized 3 hours of billable research and 1 billable hour for writing the memo, that should be MORE than sufficient to research the position of each circuit on this asinine issue that I thought of at 3AM this morning because I couldn’t sleep so I thought of ways to ruin your life instead!!!!

Any advice for trying to transition to attorney role after passing bar? Working at a firm in a non-attorney role and doesn’t seem like the firm has a position for me, despite my positive review and consistently positive feedback from associates and partners alike. However, when the idea that I’d be leaving came up, the managing partner said they’d hope I would go to them first. Thoughts?

Does anyone feel like they can’t ask the firm to pay for e- seminars/training in this cost-cutting situation? I wanna do so, it’s a relevant course, not too expensive and so far my firm seems to be doing OK (hiring and pay freezes but no redundancies) but I just feel the managing partner will be low key irritated (she is fairly calculative imo and rightly so) and I really don’t want to get in her bad books. Am I just overthinking?

For those in the position to hire: always ask your recruiters if they’re offering people fair salaries. Use your power to get everyone paid what they’re worth. No more wage gap or lowballing
