I want to move to Portland, Maine. Currently I’m an attorney at a big law firm in Boston. I’m originally from a more rural area though and would like to move to a smaller city with better quality of life. Unfortunately I have zero ties to Maine, other than many weekend trips and constantly looking a Zillow. Does anyone have any information about the Portland legal market? How hard of a sell will this be to employers?

Started a new job and first month I did really well. Some of my installs didn’t go in, but them be the runs. I’m at about half of what I did last month now with the remainder of the month left, so I’ll probably be close to what I did last month, but I am starting to feel like I’m being “put on the program” by management and colleagues. I already had my doubts about this place before I signed the offer letter; do I stick it out or run?

How should I evaluate my salary? I’m a 1st year associate at a mid-sized firm (50 attorneys) with a monthly billable hours target of 170. It’s interesting to me that my billable amount in 3 months is equal to my salary, and I’m wondering at what point that should change. I understand there is overhead that I have to consider when analyzing this, but I feel sure there is a typical ratio of billing amount to salary and I’m just wondering what that looks like. Any thoughts here?

If you’ve switched from HR generalist (manager, director, etc.) roles to specialize in something, can you share how you made the switch?

SPHR exam- has anyone ever been “randomly selected” for an application audit? This just happened to me and the sheer amount of effort that is going to go into collecting all the documents almost makes me not want to follow through. Since I didn’t finish undergrad, they’re asking for a copy of my high school diploma or transcript and that itself is going to be an absolute nightmare to get hold of. Guess I’m not really looking for a solution here, just venting.

I’ve practiced litigation in DC for about 5+ years at a larger plaintiffs’ firm, and am considering a switch to a defense firm. Is there any insight to how many billable hours this would require, and how much time that would actually be? For reference, the firm has a 1900 billable hour requirement and the partner said I would have “no problem” fulfilling that based on the work they have.

I’m about to give my two-week notice next week and I’m just slightly worried since my proposed last day at the firm would be the day I’m supposed to receive my bonus for the prior year (oct ‘19 - oct ‘20). I’m just slightly worried that they could do something to try to screw me out of it - even though its for the prior year and I billed out at the highest bonus threshold we have. I was thinking I’d wait at least until my bonus figure was communicated in writing. Anyone disagree w that approaxh?
