Associates - what is an effective way that you’ve been told to pick up your billable hours/meet your goals? Anything that really resonated with you? Have a few associates that are just not billing enough. I’ve had general discussions with each of them but not seeing improvement. Boutique firm and 1800 hour requirements.

About to give my two weeks notice on Friday. Going to let my primary partner know first, then send to the personnel committee. Any advice for wrapping up things in 2 weeks?
How many billable hours per week is considered at capacity? I’m getting pushback on boundaries I’m setting about additional matters and marketing work from my firm when I’ve been billing 60-75 hours per week for the last 6 weeks, and I’m still behind on my work. I feel like it’s reasonable to not kill myself further to fit in more/turn things around faster at this point, but am I being unreasonable? I expect my workload to remain at this level through the end of the year at least.

I got an average LSAT score and went to a mid-tier law school where I did average. I did really well in undergrad and I’m a good writer and speaker. But my legal analysis skills are mediocre.

Ik everything is pretty crazy and it’s all relative.🤝

Instagram has optimal times to post during the weekdays and weekends, and users can see these perfect times online (e.g. 2-4 pm) . However, I only caught that magical time once. I used Facebook business suite to schedule my posts for the best times to post, yet I had no luck. What do you recommend?

Question. New staff that started in January. Needs help every time they do a return. Can’t follow simple instructions. Takes hours to walk them through how to prepare a return.
