How do I find local attorneys to pair up with on cases? I’m licensed in an absurd number of cases and practice in debt defense/bankruptcy. So far, in all the states except my home state, all I’ve done is debt defense because with the 341s, it’s a little trickier than just sending local counsel. I’d draw up the plan and the attorneys in other states handle the more local aspects such as court appearances. I’m not asking how to get the clients, do a bankruptcy, or ethically split fees.

How do supervising partners deal with this.. I rarely complain to my boss, but a mid-level constantly complains about me. I suspect he BCC’s the boss on overly formal reprimand emails to me.

I recently passed the bar and need a writing sample to submit to potential employers. I went to law school a few years ago so I don’t think I should use something from law school. I have been working but everything I’ve written at my job was from a template. I think I need to write a new paper to submit but I don’t know where to start. Maybe a PT prompt from the bar exam?

I am so underutilized in my job. I’ve been there for a little over a year now. I’m an attorney with 7+ years’ experience in litigation and most of the time I’m treated like a glorified paralegal. I’ve been volunteering and writing articles to try to stay mentally stimulated. I don’t even feel like a lawyer anymore. It’s really taking a toll on me mentally. I’m actively job hunting, but there isn’t much out there right now.
