Residential Real Estate. Started practicing five years ago in NYC because it was a firm that was willing to pay me out of law school. I had little interest, but 5 years in the field has taught me a lot. I have periodically realized that my skill set is limited - never stepped inside a courtroom and don’t know the first thing about litigation. Are there any other residential r/e attorneys out there who feel trapped in their field?
So I’m doing a secondment, but it’s supposed to only take up to 70% of my time. It’s going to take more than that. I’m already getting pressure from partners at the firm and simply don’t have enough hours in the day to do two full time jobs. I’m thinking of putting an out of office on to my firm email during the day (explaining where I am and what I’m doing) - is that dumb? I feel like I can’t possibly monitor two inboxes at once and the firm wanted me to do this, anyway. Advice, please.
